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

An idle mind...

We took at trip over the weekend, so Lance got two days off (I try very hard to avoid breaks of longer than one day). Even so, he was surprisingly good for me this afternoon when I got him out – not saucier or mouthier than usual.

That's probably because he found something with which to keep himself occupied (besides the dangling milk jug and the Jolly Ball).
He started destroying the fiberglass sidelight in his stall.

Yikes, I guess he wanted more ventilation. Silly boy.
Glad he was good for you under saddle. Having never trained a young horse, I find your blog very interesting. Thanks for sharing!

And Tang needs a ball - yesterday, she dumped over her stock tank with 12" of water left in it. She looked rather pleased with herself when I came down to see what she was doing...

I have a plan, though - Correy has a torn rubber tub that I'll leave in there for her to play with... That'll help, I think!

Oh my gosh! :-) Funny, but not really... hope he didn't swallow anything!

EXACTLY.

What is it with our horses? They are both lazy, but need something to "mess" with!

Me, too, Mary Ann. :-/
