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

Why The Name Change?

As some of my long time readers know, this blog used to be called Standardbred Excellence.  I named it at the time because I felt that in order to really show the world what a Standardbred could do, you had to work towards excellence.  

After an almost three year break in blogging, I returned in 2016 and figured it was time to update with a new look and name.  I may still tweak it a bit, but for now I like it and think it needed a change!  It's not just about Standardbred Excellence any longer, but the focus will be on the entire farm and both species of animals hahaha!  :-)  

Plus, it was time to change the name of my farm.  I called it Moonstone Farm for many years, having dreamed that up way back when I was in fifth grade.  But it seemed that as my own life has evolved, the name of our farm needed to reflect that.  And now it is not just my farm, but OUR farm.  My husband is just as much a part of it as I am, which is one of the innumerable reasons I married him!  ;-)  

PS - Of course, that meant that I had to change my barn/show colors from maroon and gray to green (with a hint of maroon and cream).  LOL I'll always be a prissy horse girl at heart.
