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…

Hidden Brook Farm dressage show Aug. 8, 2009

Dreamy and I trucked up to Norway, ME on August 8 to compete at the Hidden Brook Farm schooling dressage show. It was the only unrated dressage show I did this year. I decided to compete because I needed one more show recognized by the Maine Dressage Society to qualify for year ends. We did the two Isaac Royal shows and so the HBF show made number three.

It was a gorgeous day and Dreamy was very good. In Training 2 we scored a 58.929% for third place and in Training 4 we scored a 58.8% for fourth place. Or it may have been the other way around for ribbons. LOL! I actually never wrote it down so I cannot remember which was which! Our scores were solid 5, 6, and 7s.


  1. hahaha...Dreamy is not looking so impressed in that picture! Good solid scores though.

  2. Way to go. BTDT with an Arab. Harder climb, but what rewards when it happens. :o)
