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!  ;-)

Lendon Gray clinic

My longtime dressage idol is Lendon Gray. I was lucky to have the opportunity to ride with her August 21-22, 2009 at Brookfield Corner Farm in Brookfield, NH. This farm is just under an hour from the house and is run by a wonderful family.

I was so beside myself to actually get a chance to ride with Lendon! I was riding both days with the owner of the farm, a woman named Janet. When I rolled in on Saturday, all I could hear was screaming from the indoor. OH BOY, I thought. I am going to love this!

Well, I was wrong. :( Of course, I was thrilled for the experience, but it did not go exact as I had hoped. To Be Continued.....
