To ride dressage is to dance with your horse, equal partners in the delicate and sometimes difficult work of creating harmony and beauty.

Riding while the sun shines
Yesterday and today I got in good schooling rides. Last week I rode on Sunday and Monday, too - and that was it, thanks to the weather and other demands on my time. Things may go the same way this week; tomorrow we are supposed to go skiing with friends (I'd rather ride), and a "pineapple express" - a warm, WET front - is forecast for rest of the week and next weekend. Oh well, two rides per week are better than none, and Russell felt good today. I think I've got my dressage horse back!
