Groton House Farm dressage warmup gang was ready for action! Photo courtesy of Kristie Gill.

I played hooky from work yesterday (though I’m not sure I can technically call it hooky when I actually used a vacation day) to volunteer on dressage day at my local event, Groton House Farm. I’d call dressage day at GHF a five-ring circus, but I don’t think circus is really the right word. While yes, with five rings running at once there was a LOT going on, but the GHF organizers and coordinators have created a well-oiled machine and it was easy for a warmup steward newbie such as myself to step in and successfully contribute.

Oh, and bonus: my day of volunteering earned some points for my Area 1 Virtual Team Challenge team and I got to meet one of my teammates!
