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

My funny Valentine

Isn't this some kind of ballet pose?

Or did Lance just want to hide behind his (rather skimpy) tail?

I started Valentine's Day out right with a ride in the sunshine on my pretty red boy. My attire was surprisingly – and unintentionally – coordinated; dusky purple breeches and jacket, lighter lavender sweatshirt. Once upon a time when I was a schoolgirl artist, a teacher told me "red and purple do not go together." Of course, I had just combined those colors in one of my creations, and immediately felt bad. I've come a long way, baby; I don't let others' opinions affect me that much anymore. So here's to bucking trends and not letting anyone else (except God) define for you what is good and right!

Amen Michelle - I couldn't agree more!!! I ate one of those Dove chocolates yesterday, and the note inside read, "disregard other people's rules and live according to your own heart". I thought that was fairly appropriate. :)

Whatever do you mean...skimpy tail??? I don't think so!!
I think that is a ballerina pose...

All colors go together, says the Crazy Dyer Lady!

The photo is deceptive, Lorie; his tail is pretty, but there isn't a lot OF it.

I guess he's already a better dancer than I thought! ;-)
