ME Morgan Benefit Show - August 10, 2019

I had not been planning to bring Ellie to this show, but an email had gone out to members a few days prior that entries were a bit low.  So in order to support the club, we headed out to Pineland Farm the morning of August 10, for what promised to be a gorgeous summer day!  All photos that I am in were purchased from the show photographer!
I always think these types of shows are going to be fine, but at the end of every single one of them, I always remember why I should stick with dressage and eventing haha.  That is not to say there is anything wrong with open shows or the club that runs them; this is just not the type of showing we do well at because she's not a "show horse".
The show was held at a gorgeous facility that boasts both large indoor and outdoor arenas.  They chose to have the show indoors with warm-up outside, which is fine, but Ellie was not a fan of the indoor.  One corner was open to the large and echo-y storage area where they had set up the secretary…

Maine Dressage Society Year End Awards 2009

Dreamy just keeps making me proud! The Maine Dressage Society awards banquet was held on Jan. 31, 2010. Here are the ribbons that were handed out...



The ribbon colors are odd. The year end coordinator chose them a few years back. She does this color at her farm's dressage schooling shows too. First is more of a navy, second is HOT pink (gag), third is more of a light yellow, fourth is gray, etc. I am not a huge fan, truth be told. But, what the heck, ribbons are ribbons, right?? LOL!

Dreamy was 8th in Training level adult amateur, Standardbred Horse of the Year, and I received my bronze medal! YAY!



Such a super mare! :) Special thanks to my "date", Shelly! :)
