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…

Day 14 - Your dream barn/farm

I love my little farm, but man, if the budget was unlimited, there are so many things I would add!  LOL!

I would want a ring like this:


Dragged daily, of course!  ;-)

Plus, gotta have a separate jump field.

And an indoor, of course!
This would be fine.

My tack room would have to be much larger.

A wash stall would be nice!


And while I currently only have two stalls, I don't think I would add any more LOL!  It is enough work right now to own two horses, never mind adding more!  So unless I also get to choose the dream job of not having a job (haha), then I think I would increase the storage space in my barn (for my carriages and totes full of blankets that are currently in my basement).  My husband could use his own "tack" room, as he has a bazillion yokes that are also currently in our basement.  While yokes are considerably cheaper than say, a saddle, the oxen outgrow them much faster than a horse, so he literally has 5" to 10" yokes.  You measure in between where the bows fit into the yoke, so as the pair grows larger, you need a larger yoke!

I'd love to finish every fence line with the white vinyl we already have started.  We just did the front section for now, because (you guessed it) budget.  While we are at it, might as well add acres and acres of more grazing land. 



And while we are in dreamland, how about I don't have to pay more in taxes for this dream farm and I have a groundskeeper haha!  ;-)

  1. Wow. What a place. My dream farm would be mine but with an indoor and more land to carve out trails and a field for galloping. :)
