NEJA Winter Schooling Jumper Show - April 25, 2021

Our final NEJA show in their winter series was at the end of April. On a whim, I decided to kick it old school and wear my rust breeches and navy coat. I definitely got a few "looks" from some of the HJ crowd, but it was worth being the weirdo eventer girl haha. It was a gorgeous spring day and our rounds were all excellent. Rejoice really seems to enjoy her newfound jumper pony status and powered around like she knew what she was doing haha.  My goals for the day were to win the ground poles speed class by taking a sneaky route someone's trainer would not approve of again haha like I did at the March show and to remember my jump off round like I did NOT do at the March show! Though there wasn't a super sneaky route to take in the ground poles class, I made sure to set her up for tight turns and rollbacks. We did win the class out of nine riders! Whoot! Our speed cross rails was also a good class, with Rejoice willing to listen to half halts, turn on a dime, and also

Check it out!

OK, OK, I know this is out of my 30 day challenge routine, but I wanted to post this!!  

I first found Ellen Harvey back in 2006 when she published this article.  I had no idea who she was, but I immediately liked her.  (And I liked her style of writing...I am an English teacher after all!  LOL!)

Since then, I have become "friends" with Ellen on Facebook and via email.  Hopefully on one of my trips to NJ I will get a chance to meet her in person.  She writes a blog for the United States Trotting Association's Hoofbeats publication.  And to my surprise, she wrote about me and the work I am doing at my high school in her latest blog!  THANKS ELLEN!  I am so pleased to have the positive shout-out for my kids!!  Read the entire thing...it is at the end.  Please consider sending your dresses!  :-D
