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

About Me

I have been a horse crazy little girl for most of my life.  I began my equine career in 1985 when I was six years old. My earliest recollections of horses are from visiting my great-grandfather's Standardbred farm. 

I began riding with Joy Spencer of Joydale Morgan Farm, which is where my first horse Sparky was born.  I took jumping lessons for a year with Chelise Storace of Cressbrook Stable when she was located in Straham, NH and then went on to ride in college at the University of New Hampshire with Janet Briggs from 1997 - 2001.  I took summer dressage lessons in college on Lusitano stallions with Vitor Silva of Sons of the Wind when he was located in Deerfield, NH.  

I have been lucky enough to ride in clinics with Steuart Pittman, Linda Zang, Lendon Gray, Heather Blitz, Chris Lombard, Gwyneth McPherson, and Jennifer Wilson-Horr. I took dressage lessons with Judy Thibeau of Little Moon Farm for years with Dreamy.  Most recently, I have been riding dressage with Beth Brainerd of Hidden Brook Farm and jumping with Babette Lenna Gonyea of B-Eventing.

I live on my own little farm with my husband and two children!  I am a schoolteacher in real life, which gives me the opportunity to enjoy the summers with my horses and kiddos!  Drop me an email anytime at cloverledgefarm@gmail.com!  :-)
