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…

Friendship Award


A blogger friend On the Bit sent this award my way! Thanks OTB!!! I cannot wait to meet her this summer when I return to NJ to show. Actually I had debated on whether or not to invite her to the SPHO-NJ Banquet this month, but then I got thinking that she might think I was crazy, since we have never "officially" met in person yet. LOL! But anyway, I felt silly.....AND then I saw OTB's comments about the banquet and now wish I had just invited her anyway. I think we would have had a blast hanging out.

Next year OTB! You are so coming with me! :D

The award description:

These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.

So now I get to pass this award on to other bloggers. I chose:

  1. haha...you are crazy...you own a HORSE! That automaticlly means you are a wack job...but thats okay...I am too :P As for the banquet, I should have been reading your blog more often so at least you would have known I wanted to come...not after the fact. Next time! And who knows...maybe we will ger Erin back to NJ so we can have a blog party! I will meet you this summer for nationals so we only put it off for a few months. Besides, I would totally have been jealous of all those ribbons anyway so maybe it is for the best :P
