NEJA Winter Schooling Jumper Show - April 25, 2021

Our final NEJA show in their winter series was at the end of April. On a whim, I decided to kick it old school and wear my rust breeches and navy coat. I definitely got a few "looks" from some of the HJ crowd, but it was worth being the weirdo eventer girl haha. It was a gorgeous spring day and our rounds were all excellent. Rejoice really seems to enjoy her newfound jumper pony status and powered around like she knew what she was doing haha.  My goals for the day were to win the ground poles speed class by taking a sneaky route someone's trainer would not approve of again haha like I did at the March show and to remember my jump off round like I did NOT do at the March show! Though there wasn't a super sneaky route to take in the ground poles class, I made sure to set her up for tight turns and rollbacks. We did win the class out of nine riders! Whoot! Our speed cross rails was also a good class, with Rejoice willing to listen to half halts, turn on a dime, and also

National Show Photos!

Here are the professional pics from the National Standardbred show. Click on Portraits by the Show Sign (top right) and 9AM-1130 Dressage (bottom left) to see the Dream Girl in action. I think we had a couple under Candids too.....walking over to warm-up for dressage. Some of the looks on my face during the dressage is priceless....I am in such deep concentration I nearly look terrified! LOL!

And here are a few of the pics I took myself. First, our stall sign.



Here I am, exhausted and dirty, braiding her mane at nearly midnight. Bad me.



Dreamy chilling in her stall after dressage.



Our tack stall. Had we realized we would not be showing out of the trailer (because it was POURING we decided to show out of the stalls instead) then we would have been more prepared to show out of a tack stall. We had no saddle racks....ummm, well no racks at all. It was a bit worrisome for me, the one who like to be organized and clean! LOL! That NJ red clay is wicked!
