Hidden Brook Farm Dressage Schooling Show - June 2, 2019

Ellie and I did a show at our lesson barn this past weekend instead of taking a lesson.  I would have done a lesson on Saturday before the show, but my instructor went to NEDA Spring with her eldest daughter, who was able to get her last Grand Prix score for her USDF Gold Medal!!!  So that is a good reason to not be able to lesson haha.

I admit I was a little bummed about our low scores at the SMDA show two weeks prior.  I know a score of 6 (60%) is called satisfactory, but I really thought our performance was better than a low 60%.
I was determined to ride well and even though Beth was not there, I had her youngest daughter as my back up if the wheels fell off the bus LOL!  She was already in the warmup and at the show ring with her actual students, so it was nice to have her there to remind me to breathe and not hang on the left rein!  ;-)
Ellie unloaded and was totally calm.  Honestly, she loves her lesson barn and knows it is her second home haha.  She was much calmer tied to the tra…

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
