CNER Eventing D Rally - October 6, 2019

I almost didn't attend the last Pony Club rally of the year, because I wasn't sure if I wanted to show in the dressage show on Saturday and then the rally the following day.  But seeing as this rally with Central New England Region (through Atlantic Pony Club) is only for riders at the D level, and my plan is to earn my C-1 next year, I knew that this was my one and only chance to compete.  I also figured Ellie was more than capable of doing two Training level tests the day before an event.  And as a D-3 rider, I was required to do BN Test A and jump 2'3", which seemed like a perfect move-up opportunity.
Of course, it was an early morning adventure to get to the Groton Fairgrounds in Massachusetts, a place I had never been to before and is 2.5 hours away.  I left the house at 4:30am (OUCH) and luckily had a super easy drive down to MA.  It was only 29 degrees when I left, and it wasn't much warmer when I arrived at the grounds just before 7am.  There was still fros…

Product Review: KJ Creations Tack Cleaner

The latest giveaway I was lucky to win was from KJ Creations!  Kristina has a super fun Instagram presence and her shop is full of cool items.  I entered her contest by telling what are my favorite tack items to clean (saddles) and my least favorite (bridles and breastcollars)!  I also had to tag a friend who also follows her page, so I chose Leah from Confessions of a Dressage Barbie.


We both won an 4oz. jar of tack cleaner!  I will be honest, I am a total saddle soap snob and generally only use Stubben's leather soap, Lederseife.  So KJ Creations's tack cleaner had to stand up to that.  And I am happy to say that it did and I love it!  I might not be giving up my Lederseife, but this tack cleaner definitely earned its spot in my tack cleaning bin.


Kristina gifted me the "After Hours" scent, which is comprised of bergamot and lavender.  It smelled heavenly.  It lathered up well and didn't leave any residue, which I love.  It cleaned off a winter's worth of gunk from my saddle and bridle.  I also used it on my tall boots and they look great!


If you are looking for an excellent tack cleaner AND to support a fabulous small business, I highly recommend KJ Creations!  She offers 23 scents and the price is reasonable.  And you can get lost browsing all her other items in her shop.  I am totally eyeing a few of the monograms and horse snacks!
