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

Post-Christmas pea soup

No, not to eat; we're talking the thickest fog I've ever seen! I went out to ride this afternoon, and Brian decided to ride, too. He took Breezy down the road to get the mail, and Lance and Oliver were beside themselves with her departure. I decided to tie up the reins and turn Lance loose rather than deal with it under saddle.

I think I made a wise choice, don't you? ;-)

Once Lance told me he was ready, we had a very nice ride. Not quite as fantastic as our Christmas Eve ride; his canter departs that day were the most willing and easy he's ever given me. Guess it was my Christmas present from Lance. What a boy; I am so blessed!

I love the one with all 4 feet off the ground! I would not have wanted to be on him at that point! It's been blowing here, and I just don't ride when the wind blows - I hunker down in the house... (wind ptsd from younger years). But tomorrow is supposed to be warm and calm, and Tang's getting her feet done. We may go for a short one, because her feet will a bit tender (but that will keep them on the ground!!)
