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 …

Baby Ellie!

I have unearthed Baby Ellie pics from the barn manager's Facebook haha!  I had time to kill one day last week.  Don't ask LOL.  Isn't she the cutest?!

Just a few days old.  Look at those ears LOL!  And she was so red!

This is the BM's dad, which is random, but look how much she now looks like her mother!

This is Ellie as a yearling.
And an adorable post when they started her under saddle last winter.
