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…

A Day in the Life.....

"Uggggggggg" I say as I roll out of bed. I am NOT a morning person, especially on a Monday morning.

Frosty whiskers and throaty nickers greet me as I began morning chores. It is not that cold at 17 degrees at 6:20 AM! :D

Love. My son is the best kid on the planet. :)

Seriously? Did I really read that correctly? Sometimes I am still amazed at how ridiculously idiotic people can be. Good gravy. Talk about crazy. It is quite funny to watch people destroy "friendships" only to find they have no friends! And then try to grasp for the ones they previously treated badly! The more I get to know horse people, the more I like my HORSE(S)! ROFL! Thankfully the drama has not reached me. PHEW!

YAY! Only four more days to teach until vacation! Life is good.

Oh, my aching back. Hauling water from the house to the barn is no fun.

More love. Slobbery kisses, horse cookies, neck scratches. Saying goodnight to the ponies is one of my favorite times of the day!

Resist! You. Can. Do. It! Why, oh why, does SLT and Dover have to send me sale catalogs!? LOL! I do NOT need another saddle pad, I do NOT need another saddle pad........LOL!

You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown. My long suffering husband is out in the dark cold night fixing the barn's outside spigot as I type. There is a small metal thingy inside the handle that likes to break in the winter. And of course you cannot get that specific piece in the "spigot repair kit" at the hardware. Using his truck's headlights, he is fixing the spigot. :) If that's not love, I don't know what is. <3
