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!

  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!

  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!
