NEJA Two-Phase - May 31, 2020

Of course, none of us had any idea if we would be able to compete in 2020. I will say that my big goals for the year (which were sitting in an unpublished post from January 2020!) were to keep my horses healthy, happy, sound, to move up to BN with Ellie, and to complete one recognized horse trial at BN. And despite all of the COVID-19 protocols and cancellations over the year, we did meet our goals (mostly). Many of the local barns here in Maine took on the challenge of bringing us safe competitions in 2020. Ellie and I started the year by competing in a little schooling 2-phase and debuting at BN. It went well and it got me excited about the year's possibilities.  We had a great dressage test (placed second in our division) and then had one rail in our show jump course. The rail was totally my fault and for our first ever BN outing, I was pretty excited! We ended up fourth in a mid-sized division. And because I do not remember much else for specifics, here's a big old photo du

Me riding Kenny circa 1988.  I was nine and we are about to ride my first ever dressage test!  He was the nicest and most well behaved stallion I have ever met!
This is a fun post, that shows many horses of my past, as well as Kenny and Sparky, my Sparky's sire and dam!  And here is another post about Sparky's famous relatives! 


BTW, I did a similar 30 day challenge back in March.  Here is post #1 that has info about my mares as well!  :-)
