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…

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!
