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 I will say that my big goals for the year (which were sitting in an unpublished post from January 2020!)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

Impressive

Anyone remember my blog post about my friend's tack store a couple months ago?

Go ahead, read the previous entry.  I'll wait...

OK, you're back!  Now guess what?  The arbitration company found her in the RIGHT!  Here is what she posted tonight on Facebook:

This is for those of you who knew me as Blue Ribbon Consignment & Tack...we WON THE ARBITRATION that Blue Ribbon Custom Tack brought against us. I am still the rightful owner of blueribbonconsignment although this new name is fantastic and I'm glad this all happened, it's nice to know that we were in the right!!

*****CHALK ONE UP FOR THE LITTLE GUY*****
WE WON!!!The bottom line of a 9 page document received from the arbitration company -"Complainant having not established all three elements required under the ICANN Policy, the panel concludes that relief shall be denied.  Accordingly, it is ordered that the domain name REMAIN WITH RESPONDENT." WOOOOOT!!! David took down Goliath!! And got a better name and logo to move on with to boot! Thanks you guys!!!

I think this is so fantastic.  Granted, she has since gone ahead and changed her name to Hot to Trot Consignment, as she needed to get her Facebook page and website back up and running to continue business.  Much of her business comes via the internet, so she could not sit and around and wait weeks for this decision.  So really, this win was just on the pure PRINCIPLE of the matter, but I am still happy for her!!
