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!  ;-)
Ellie unloaded and was totally calm.  Honestly, she loves her lesson barn and knows it is her second home haha.  She was much calmer tied to the tra…

RIP My Sweet Horse

Rest in peace, Volo old boy. You have earned your wings, so fly free with the wind in your mane.

  2. Thanks OTB....It is nice to know there are other horse crazy gals out there who understand. :( It is so bizarre to feel "content" with his peaceful end but at the same time mourn his passing.

  3. As you know my BO and I just went through this last Jan with her wonderful TB Red. As difficult as it is to make the decision and carry through, it really is for the best. Volo is running free with all his friends and making new ones I am sure.

  4. Reading this brings tears to my eyes. I know this day too will come for my precious Treat. I only hope that she lives as long and as healthy as Volo. I am sure he is now running (pacing):), with all the others now. RIP Volo.
