ME Morgan Benefit Show - August 10, 2019

I had not been planning to bring Ellie to this show, but an email had gone out to members a few days prior that entries were a bit low.  So in order to support the club, we headed out to Pineland Farm the morning of August 10, for what promised to be a gorgeous summer day!  All photos that I am in were purchased from the show photographer!
I always think these types of shows are going to be fine, but at the end of every single one of them, I always remember why I should stick with dressage and eventing haha.  That is not to say there is anything wrong with open shows or the club that runs them; this is just not the type of showing we do well at because she's not a "show horse".
The show was held at a gorgeous facility that boasts both large indoor and outdoor arenas.  They chose to have the show indoors with warm-up outside, which is fine, but Ellie was not a fan of the indoor.  One corner was open to the large and echo-y storage area where they had set up the secretary…

Day 27 - You know you're an equestrian when…

You know you're an equestrian when... (#withfunhashtags and a gif edition haha)

5.  You can get totally swept down the rabbit hole that is Smartpak supplements online (or whatever else equine related online) and do entirely too much research and clicking around about diet, nutrition, and supplements.  Every so often (though not recently), I get it into my head my horse needs XYZ supplement or what-have-you.  #whyyesihave27tabsopeninmybrowser

This is nothing.  That's only 14 tabs.
4.  You have a tube of Banamine in your purse.  And when it falls out onto the Dunks' counter, the cashier's horrified look just makes you snort laugh.  #askmehowIknow #thismayhaveoccuredmorethanonce

Lately, the Banamine has emigrated to the catch all thing next to my purse.  Yes, I took this photo just for this post haha.  
3.  You consistently and automatically use the terms off fore/hind and near fore/hind to describe the tires on your truck.  #mymechanicthinksimaweirdo

2. Your barn broom wears out once a year.  You've never needed to replace your house floor broom.  #truestory
Photographic evidence that I had to go back to 2009 on my Facebook to find haha!  Old barn broom (right), new barn broom (left).  This pic could be taken every year.
1.  You catch yourself analyzing the gait of every animal you come into contact with.  And you admit to yourself that one of your barn kitties has a really decent medium trot and lovely uphill canter that your horses will never probably have.  #catswhododressage

  3. omg i'm always assessing the quality of movement of dogs getting walked in my city neighborhood. and... am always surprised by how many LAME little itsy bitsy teacup dogs there are. i think they just get stepped on and nobody ever treats them to heal correctly bc they're so little and get around just fine three legged i guess.... lol?

  4. hehehe I love it! My shorthairs would be very fancy dressage horses too with their jaunty trots. At least you didn't have something legit scary in your purse, like needles or something. I also end up with 4,000 open tabs and do more research for my animals than I ever do on things for myself or for work. Ooops. I just got lost down the magnesium rabbit hole and ended up sneakily buying supplements when my husband gave me permission to buy my own christmas presents ;)

    1. Yeah, totally glad it was not IV banamine with a needle syringe because OMG the locals would think I was shooting drugs!! NOT good esp for a school teacher LMAO!

      Even my students say something about the number of tabs I will have open. I'm like, hey, don't judge! LOL

      And hahaha I think that's a great Christmas present! I bought myself a browband and a few other horsey things and told my husband he could wrap them if he'd like LOL!!
