*I pushed my blog rebrand live without realizing the links wouldn't update, so if you were previously following dressagebarbie.com you'll need to update to trainwreckinteal.com - sorry about that!*
So in my prep for POSSIBLY entering a schooling show at 1st, I reacquainted myself with the current tests. And remembered that many moons ago when I DIY'd my existing arena letters, I only did ones for a short court (because at the time I was happily bopping around intro/training on the first of several green horses I started from scratch, sigh). And I wanted them easy to move and store, because at the time I didn't have an arena at home, and then boarded somewhere where I couldn't leave a court set up all the time.

|You know what they do carry? These heavy duty plastic plates. For $.50.
I was hoping this update would include photos of them painted and actually HUNG but DH and I are both struggling to get back in the work groove after a nice vacay (#firstworldproblems, amirite?), so it's been everything I can do to fit in a ride before I collapse on the couch in the evenings. No matter, three day weekend kicks off tonight and Mondays weather looks garbage so maybe we'll have a painting party! 😁
