SMDA Recognized Show - July 14, 2019

Ellie and I tried her first recognized show in July.  It was quite an interesting experience; I don't know why this has been such a weird year, but sadly it has!

I signed up to ride Training 2 and 3, paying the little extra to have T3 count as a qualifying score.  It didn't really matter since we cannot do enough rated shows this year to qualify for a USDF award, as I want to do horse trials and other things on weekends when the rated shows are scheduled.  But I wanted it to "count" just in case because you never know lol!

STB License

A good friend of mine decided to get a new license plate the other day. I think what she chose is absolutely brillant.

She has had M-HOCKY on her UMaine license plate for many years. (Poor girl doesn't realize that she is cheering for the wrong team......GO UNH WILDCATS!!!!!! LOL!!!!)

So she sent me a pic of the new plate. How COOL IS THAT????? Not only does it show her love for the breed and her own STB gelding, but it also promotes the UMares too! :)
I have been thinking of getting 8HOOVES on my trailer plate. Maybe I need to get LUV STB instead! :) Though I do wonder what Sparky would think. Morgans were my first love after all.
