Hidden Brook Farm Dressage Schooling Show - June 2, 2019

Ellie and I did a show at our lesson barn this past weekend instead of taking a lesson.  I would have done a lesson on Saturday before the show, but my instructor went to NEDA Spring with her eldest daughter, who was able to get her last Grand Prix score for her USDF Gold Medal!!!  So that is a good reason to not be able to lesson haha.

I admit I was a little bummed about our low scores at the SMDA show two weeks prior.  I know a score of 6 (60%) is called satisfactory, but I really thought our performance was better than a low 60%.
I was determined to ride well and even though Beth was not there, I had her youngest daughter as my back up if the wheels fell off the bus LOL!  She was already in the warmup and at the show ring with her actual students, so it was nice to have her there to remind me to breathe and not hang on the left rein!  ;-)

  2. I LOVE IT! Dreamy looks a little less than thrilled about the whole dressing up for halloween thing, but you and you son have such smiles on your face! I hope you take one of those pictures and throw it in a frame to torture your son with. You can pull it out before he goes on his senior prom and go "you made such a cute cat".

  3. Ah, my horse is so good to put up with me! LOL! :) I even think she was a little mortified to be at a dressage show with orange braids AND Halloween garland in her tail. And OTB, you are SO right about pulling one of these photos out when he invites a girl over. Or a cute one of him naked in the tub. LOL!
