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!  ;-)

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! :)
