NER United States Pony Club Show Jump Rally - July 20, 2019

Ellie and I had SO MUCH FUN at our first Pony Club jump rally this year.  We drove up to Clay Brook Farms, where we had our D-1/D-2 rating, in order to compete for the day on July 20.  This happened to be one of the hottest days of summer, so the organizers modified the schedule a bit.  Instead of doing two rounds in the morning and one in the afternoon, we all did just two rounds (with a ten-minute break in between) all in the morning, so we were done and headed out just after lunch.  
Everything ran so smoothly despite the condensed format.  We were able to do our formal inspections right before we mounted up, and we were all encouraged to limit our warm up time.  We were not allowed to wear jackets, and there was a TON of horse water and ice cold human water available at numerous stations around the field.

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!

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.
