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

Good timing gone

I rode on Wednesday last week, and then was gone for two days for a quick road trip. I don't usually ride on Saturday, but figured I'd be back in the saddle yesterday, after just one extra day off for my boy (I strive to take no more than two days off between rides). The forecast was for sunny, dry days in the low 70s through the weekend – perfection!

Well, I have never experienced such a Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde change between the forecast and reality before in my life! A typhoon left Japan and headed for the Pacific Northwest, and it's been dumping on us since Friday:

There are breaks between the showers and downpours today, but I'm too swamped with homeschooling and other duties to try and take advantage of them. I've got to at least turn the boy out for a romp and a roll; he's starting to act like the cooped-up colt on stall rest I was dealing with before bringing him home!

It's rainy and windy over on this side of the Cascades also. I put on mud boots to go out into the pasture to get Woodrow.
