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…

Marshaling at Scarborough Downs - Oct. 17, 2009

On Saturday, Oct. 17, 2009, the Standardbred Performance Society set up an informational booth and marshaled the race card at Scarborough Downs. It was special because it was the day of the 2 YO Stakes Finals for both pacers and trotters!

Of course, I marshaled again with my partner in crime, Shelly. We had a blast! Our horses are like peas in a pod.....neither of them like other horses (Dreamy never learned how to play nicely with others and McKeever was a stud until five years ago.....) but they LOVE each other! We trailer and show them all over the place!

And of course, we are now really snazzy with our perfectly matching saddle pads and windbreakers.

Yeah, we are awesome! LOL! :D

My horse looks headless....


This guy was giving McKeever (right) some fistfuls of grass. Dreamy (left) was like, "Hey, now, wait a minute....!!!"


Dreamy is in the background, McKeever is close up.


Dreamy says MOM, I'M BORED!

Aw, Deb comes along and pets me.


McKeever (left) and Dreamy (right). The next few pics show us bringing the winner back to the circle.

Again, bringing the winner back.

Post Parade TWINS!
