I've been keeping a bit of a secret. Ellie is going to her first rated show next week- Strides and Tides at Sonoma Horse Park.

My friends are quick to ask- "Ellie is going? What about you?"

Ellie is going to show in the Baby Greens with Ali riding. Depending on how she goes I may do the Long Stirrup Division. I included this tidbit in my schedule to my boss which read something like, "Ellie is going to her first show and I will either be working from show or office depending on ride times."

It feels like Christmas in September- I can't wait to see her in action!!! I wasn't planning to ride in the show but since we're playing with made up money anyway (which is a fancy way of saying I don't know how to pay for this from the get-go) I'm going to see how she feels and how my show boots fit (I may or may not have ordered a new coat for the occasion).

Either way I can't wait for her debut!
Ellie's general take on showing


  1. Aw! How exciting! Good luck Ellie!

  2. ahhhhhh so exciting!!! i hope you guys have a blast!! (also made up money is best money lol)

  5. So Exciting. You should totally ride. No sense in going all that way and not getting on. Good luck.

  6. Eee! Baby is growing up! Sending all the luck your way :)
