NER United States Pony Club Show Jump Rally - July 20, 2019

Ellie and I had SO MUCH FUN at our first Pony Club jump rally this year.  We drove up to Clay Brook Farms, where we had our D-1/D-2 rating, in order to compete for the day on July 20.  This happened to be one of the hottest days of summer, so the organizers modified the schedule a bit.  Instead of doing two rounds in the morning and one in the afternoon, we all did just two rounds (with a ten-minute break in between) all in the morning, so we were done and headed out just after lunch.  
Everything ran so smoothly despite the condensed format.  We were able to do our formal inspections right before we mounted up, and we were all encouraged to limit our warm up time.  We were not allowed to wear jackets, and there was a TON of horse water and ice cold human water available at numerous stations around the field.

It was a great day, despite the heat and humidity.  My friend Shelly couldn't bring McKeever, as she was marshaling at the Cumberland Fair.  While I did miss having her there, it was a lot of fun to spend time with friends Margo, Amanda, and Nathan.  They always make me laugh.  And Amanda had a WONDERFUL ride on her gorgeous 3 year old American Saddlebred, pinning second in ASB Country Pleasure!!!!  Yay Amanda and Gemma!!!


Thanks to my friend Amber for helping out as my groom and photographer for the day!  :-)
