Fair Hill preview

Isabel and I had another event yesterday - this time at Fair Hill. And it was completely awesome. This event was everything you could ever hope for an event to be. The venue was gorgeous, and while the weather wasn't perfect the really heavy stuff held off long enough for us to get through.


gettin ready!!
Plus we went with a great group - including almost all of our young riders, so it was fun having them around (and Izzy LOVES them haha). 

And even better, I got to meet the lovely Allison from PONY'TUDE!!!! What a treat! And of course the timing was perfect bc she was straight off her own fabulous event (tho obvi that's her story to tell!) so there was lots to chat about. Looking forward to seeing you again soon Alli! And next time the red headed ponies are gonna get in on it too - look out world!


bloggers unite at horse shows!
Lastly tho - the icing on the cake - was that Isabel was phenomenal. She really stepped it up at this event, despite being a little more 'up' than usual at the trailer. Honestly I think she just knows exactly what's up now when we go places. And she is READY for whatever challenge awaits. 


good girl brought her game face for dressage
Sadly editing media is a real thing that takes time (esp for media-obsessed folks like me), so I actually won't have a full recap until TUESDAY. I know, I know.... but in the meantime you'll get the details from our awesome cross country lesson with Dan. Yay for posting about things in chronological order!

And also, I guess I can fill you in on a couple pertinent details from the event: we met every single goal I laid out. Including the basic 'have fun and finish with a number' to more of the reach goals. In fact, we finished on our dressage score (first time this season!!!!!! second time evar!!!!) which was itself competitive. Add in the clear jumping and we moved up to take home a very pretty ribbon. The color of which starts with an "R" and ends with a "D" (and has an "E" in the middle). 

Definitely a very good time - details coming soon!
