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!

  1. Ooh ribbons! I have ribbon envy. Maybe I need to get a STB or a paint and start doing breed shows or something, but none of the ribbons we win are nearly as exciting.

    Actually, the most exciting ribbon we've got was also the most meaningless! We won a hot pink and burgundy ribbon for a clear round at a local jumper show.

  3. Actually, for us blue is second! We aim for red. And I would totally agree with you on the relative irrelevance of ribbons in general. I think some of the best show experiences we've had don't correlate with our results/placement; it just depends on the rest of the division.
    My point was merely that your ribbons are so much prettier! Purely superficial and trivial longing ;)
