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! Our speed cross rails was also a good class, with Rejoice willing to listen to half halts, turn on a dime, and also

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. :)
