CNER United States Pony Club Dressage Rally - May 11, 2019

Our very first ever PC rally was this past Saturday at Apple Knoll Farm in Millis, MA. It kind of cracks me up that I joined PC for the express purpose of access to more jumping instruction opportunities, and my first mounted experience is a dressage rally hahaha.  

But honestly, it was so much fun.  Maybe it is because I am so used to showing alone or maybe because I love the show prep and set up just as much (if not more) than the actual riding, but competing in a PC rally is now one of my most favorite experiences.  And I cannot wait to do more!  I think the only thing different for this show was having to label EVERYTHING with my name.  Otherwise, my show prep was just the same as normal.

Sadly, our original team of four riders ended up dwindling to just two, as one young rider ended up sick with a 103 fever and a barn was quarantined because of a horse with EHV-4 so none of the PC members from that large boarding barn could attend. Therefore, my remaining teammate and I were split …

Happy New Year and all that good stuff...

What a crazy few weeks!  I had a wonderful Christmas vacation from teaching and while there were several things going on to blog about, I have just not had the time to sit down and write!  I need to do an update on Snap Dancer, news about selling a horse, a recap of 2012 and our goals, and of course, set some new goals for 2013!

Before I get to all of that, here is a little pictorial wrap up...

We had a great pre-Christmas lunch and gift exchange with my mom and her husband.  And yes, we threw some knives.  NBD (That's my husband.)
Santa was very generous!
My son loves to ride his (junky old) bike in the sn*w.  I guess it handles better than the new one.  LOL!  We got about two feet of sn*w TOTAL for the month of December 2012.  We only had 2 inches in December of 2011.  sigh  
20th annual Christmas Day ride on my Sparky 
Mac the barn cat is not sure he likes this sn*w...I feel the same. 
Reva
Sparky 
Dreamy (She wears a blanket because she is body clipped.)
Snappy 
The mat is not actually this color, but my phone is not exactly a fancy camera.  LOL!  It is more green.  I love this!
