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…

Yeah, I am still here....

So it has been a while since I have blogged! LOL! Sorry all. Life has been chaotic, especially back during late July/August. I had a lot of things going on in my personal life and I just honestly did not feel like blogging. I was unhappy about things that were not specifically related to my horses, but it did impact my outlook on life and horses and such. :(

But, I do have LOTS OF NEWS! So I am going to try to get back into the habit of posting. :)


  1. At last, you have been missed. I hope everything has worked out for you.

    I am can't wait to hear about Dreamy and how Reva is doing. Looking forward to hearing about the two of them.

  4. Great picture in your header! Dreamy looks fantastic! Glad to see that your back...we missed you!

  5. Hi!
    I just stumbled upon your blog, and I have to say, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK! I live in the Pacific Northwest, and show a Pinto who is mostly QH, with a little Standardbred, named Tucker. People out here constantly confuse Standardbreds with Saddlebreds, so I set them straight by calling them "trotters". Anyway, he has three solid gates, and we have shown in dressage for four years now, with mixed success. We will show 1st level in the spring. We cliniced with Sandy Chohany a few years ago, and she really liked Tucker. I so jealous that you were able to show for her - she is one of the best. He is also a very good jumper, and a part time therapy horse for people with disabilities. I think it is the Standardbred in him that makes him interesting, and much more versatile. I had to blog to give you any encouragement I can! You go girl!!!
