ME Morgan Benefit Show - August 10, 2019

I had not been planning to bring Ellie to this show, but an email had gone out to members a few days prior that entries were a bit low.  So in order to support the club, we headed out to Pineland Farm the morning of August 10, for what promised to be a gorgeous summer day!  All photos that I am in were purchased from the show photographer!
I always think these types of shows are going to be fine, but at the end of every single one of them, I always remember why I should stick with dressage and eventing haha.  That is not to say there is anything wrong with open shows or the club that runs them; this is just not the type of showing we do well at because she's not a "show horse".
The show was held at a gorgeous facility that boasts both large indoor and outdoor arenas.  They chose to have the show indoors with warm-up outside, which is fine, but Ellie was not a fan of the indoor.  One corner was open to the large and echo-y storage area where they had set up the secretary…

Another blog award!

Thanks to Kate over at Riding from the Ground Up for bestowing blog award to me!  Yay!  This one is called the One Lovely Blog award.  I love sharing these (sort of silly, admit it) awards with my little blogging community.  It is good fun and it is almost like winning ribbons!  LOL!!  ;-D




I am supposed to tell you seven things about myself and chose 15 blogs to share this award with. 


1. I try really hard to not be the "mean old English teacher" in all facets of my life.  ;-)


2. I despise anything remotely related to being domestic.  My only domestic quality is that I live in a house!  ;-)  I routinely wish I had a housewife who would do all that cooking, cleaning, and laundry awfulness for me.  UGGG!  My barn is always cleaner than my house.


3. I am way too competitive for my own good.  But I do have sportsmanship and can win humbly and lose gracefully. 


4.  I can be too honest at times, which can get me into trouble.  


5.  I have a Puritan work ethic and have to remember not to burn myself out.  Saying no is hard to do.  I also sometimes hold others to a higher ethical standard than they hold themselves and it stresses me out.


6. I am easily frustrated by parents who lie for their children.  They need to make their little cherubs own up to their poor choices and not blame others.


7. I can be quiet, which leads others to sometimes think I am snobby.  That is the FURTHEST thing from the truth!  If you don't like me, you definitely don't know me.  :-)


And the 15 blogs I will award this to:


1. G is for Greta
2. The Polka Dot Periodical
3. The Adventures of Lucy
4. Memoirs of a Horse Girl
5. We are Flying Solo
6. Haiku Farm
