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

And so we start
I was going to ride this morning while Rick was around and the temps were still pleasant, but after I did chores and trimmed hooves on five sheep, Rick decided to go get the last load of hay and asked me if I would help. He has done the lion's share of filling the barn with hay this year; I couldn't say no. So now we have 14 tons of hay stored, I'm hot and sweaty, the temps are soaring into the 90s and Cohort is enjoying being being out on pasture. Looks like I'll have to shoot for a Sunday morning ride!
