Hidden Brook Farm Dressage Schooling Show - June 2, 2019

Ellie and I did a show at our lesson barn this past weekend instead of taking a lesson.  I would have done a lesson on Saturday before the show, but my instructor went to NEDA Spring with her eldest daughter, who was able to get her last Grand Prix score for her USDF Gold Medal!!!  So that is a good reason to not be able to lesson haha.

I admit I was a little bummed about our low scores at the SMDA show two weeks prior.  I know a score of 6 (60%) is called satisfactory, but I really thought our performance was better than a low 60%.
I was determined to ride well and even though Beth was not there, I had her youngest daughter as my back up if the wheels fell off the bus LOL!  She was already in the warmup and at the show ring with her actual students, so it was nice to have her there to remind me to breathe and not hang on the left rein!  ;-)
Ellie unloaded and was totally calm.  Honestly, she loves her lesson barn and knows it is her second home haha.  She was much calmer tied to the tra…

Who doesn't love a fun giveaway?!

Amanda from Bel Joeor Metier (etsy and blog) is having a giveaway for one of her adorable handy bags!  I bought the larger size from her last year and I love it!  It is well made and super cute.  I was going to use it for my braiding supplies in my show trunk, though I admit it hasn't made it out to the barn yet.  It is just sitting looking cute in my bedroom at the moment haha.

This is the bag I have from her!
She also does saddle covers, which are also quite nice, and I was lucky to test out a prototype for her last summer.  After using it for a few weeks on my own saddle to provide feedback, I ended up gifting it to a young rider who needed her own saddle cover.

    1. I own five saddles and eight saddle covers, so I honestly really didn't need another cover! ;-) And because I am a sucker for enabling all the young children of the horse world, I knew this little girl needed the cute pink and purple kitty saddle cover!
