CNER Eventing D Rally - October 6, 2019

I almost didn't attend the last Pony Club rally of the year, because I wasn't sure if I wanted to show in the dressage show on Saturday and then the rally the following day.  But seeing as this rally with Central New England Region (through Atlantic Pony Club) is only for riders at the D level, and my plan is to earn my C-1 next year, I knew that this was my one and only chance to compete.  I also figured Ellie was more than capable of doing two Training level tests the day before an event.  And as a D-3 rider, I was required to do BN Test A and jump 2'3", which seemed like a perfect move-up opportunity.
Of course, it was an early morning adventure to get to the Groton Fairgrounds in Massachusetts, a place I had never been to before and is 2.5 hours away.  I left the house at 4:30am (OUCH) and luckily had a super easy drive down to MA.  It was only 29 degrees when I left, and it wasn't much warmer when I arrived at the grounds just before 7am.  There was still fros…

  1. I was going to pick one, but I'm pretty sure all of these could be Morgans in some shape or form. Although L has been seriously doubting.

  2. I think this is a trick question. ;) Aren't they all Morgans?

  3. They're probably all Morgans as I am suspicious this is a trick question. But I'm going to guess, A, B, C, F, G, h, I, K, M

  6. I was going to say all of them because God most of them look like the 'modern Morgan' Sigh.

    But I think maybe a few of them are Saddlebreds. I think that C, E, F are Morgans. I hope D is not. I am torn on G and H but gonna say they are Morgans (But could be Saddlebreds). Even though the horse looks Saddlebredy I am going to say I is a Morgan (could go either way). J is for sure and M too. I think K & L are Saddlebreds but AGAIN who the hell knows nowadays.

    You and I need to have a glass of wine or cup of coffee and talk Morgans. We have very similar ideas about the way the breed has gone I think :) Thanks for this early morning exercise for me I needed it (PS I would take C, E and J in a hot minute !)

  7. I feel like all of those are Morgans, although it has been many, many years since I rode a Morgan (gotta love New England college breeding programs with Morgans at the center!). My personal favorite is J followed by C!

    A, C, E, F, H, J
