RABT Summer Cross Country Derby - July 12, 2020

At the beginning of July, Ellie and I tackled our first ever BN level XC course at a competition! We take jumping lessons with Babette at RABT Farm (Rest & Be Thankful Farm), so having Babette there that day to coach me was perfect.  We did have some bobbles on my part, like not riding to each fence and not enough leg (NEVER ENOUGH LEG) so we had one stop on course, but I was super pumped to have a chance to jump around a course at a place we are totally comfortable but it was a crazy chaotic day with 50 horse/rider pairs and a ton more activity than our Wednesday lesson days!  ready to go I paid for a second unjudged round after our division of nine riders jumped and we went clean. It was a beautiful summer day and such a fun opportunity. All COVID protocols were in place and people were super respectful of them.  Due to our stop, we ended up in 8th place with a 3rd place team finish! I paired up with two of my Epona PC teammates for the team competition and they both won their di

Fun Freebies!

I love getting free things, especially when I forget that I ordered them!  LOL!  Today I received a fun gift from Stubben, after I signed up for an introductory care package on their website.  I did it back in the beginning of July when I got my new Juventus (the letter from them with the care package is dated July 19!) and kind of forgot about it.  It was free and sent parcel post, so I figured it would take a few weeks.  :)


The letter said I was given Stubben Care Brush On (for my horse's coat) and Stubben Hamanol (leather conditioner).  I admit I was a little bummed, since I wanted the matching leather soap.   But, hey, it is free so how can I possibly complain??  They both retail for $13.95! And I got a cute little cloth bag with the Stubben logo...not sure what I will do with that yet, but I am sure I will find a use for it. 


Good thing I checked the bottles...one is indeed the Hamanol but the "Care Brush On" is actually the leather soap!  LOL!  I am pretty sure my horses' coats would not have a "real show sheen" as the letter promised had I applied the leather soap to them.  ;-D


Thanks Stubben!!!  :D  I am loving this company and loving my saddle!!!  After I use them, I will post a Product Review!
