Course Brook Farm Horse Trials - July 28, 2019

After a successful first-ever horse trial with Ellie in the spring, I decided to try a new-to-me venue for our July horse trial.  I also felt we were definitely ready to move up a level, from Introductory 18" to Elementary 2'.  Honestly, could we jump higher and do a more difficult dressage test?  Yes.  But I am a firm believer in setting my horse up for success by not over facing her, and knowing this would be a true cross country course through the woods, I didn't want anything to seem hard or scary to her.  I wanted us both to feel confident by having a positive experience.
Ellie and I traveled down to Course Brook Farm in Massachusetts on July 28, and while it was a long trip there, Ellie unloaded and settled in easily. Traffic had been heavier than I anticipated, so while we were not running late, I definitely had no extra time once we arrived. I did not realize this venue was actually A LOT bigger than I imagined, with 160 (!!!!) horses competing that day.  Ellie had…

Product Review: Miraculous Trailer Cleaner

Ok, so it is not really called that, but this stuff is pretty freaking miraculous.  It is actually called LA's Totally Awesome Cleaner, and well, it is totally awesome.  And it is super cheap!  


Our trailer has developed gross black marks in the white aluminum skin over the past two years since we bought it and NOTHING we tried removed it.  Soap and water, Softscrub, and even Comet did nothing.  I was super frustrated because it looks gross.  In an internet search, this video popped up.  I was like nahhhh, there is no way this stuff works so well!

Oh, but it does!!

so gross


hate it


yuck


gross black streaks plus bugs haha


I was feeling rich the day I stopped at the local dollar store, because instead of the small $1 bottle, I splurged on the larger 64 ounce bottle for $3.  I know, I know, big spender!  ;-)

My husband finally had a chance to give it a shot yesterday afternoon.  And it was amazing.  It didn't take much effort at all and the black crap is gone!  It looks so much better!  

so pretty and clean (there is water on it, as he washed the trailer afterwards with soap and water)

much better!
It did fade the red sticker a little, which my husband didn't realize until afterwards. 
Oh well!  We have thought about having the sticker removed and our farm logo put on instead.

Tiny child had to help wash the rest of the trailer (with soap and water), of course haha
