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…

A neat find...

My husband found this bird's nest in one of the side lawn trees. It was empty, so the little ones have already hatched and flown away.


Normally, I would not appreciate a bird's nest, seeing as I would have wanted him to leave it in the tree. But if you look closely, you can see why he brought it to me to keep.


Yes, that is my Sparky's tail hair in the middle of the nest! How cool! :)

  2. Awww...I love it! And I have been waiting for a Sparky update for a while now. Dreamy is stealing the spotlight!

    oh and you have to come to Jersey for the 2010 GAIGs if you want to share a tack stall. You could not pay me to show in region 8!!!
