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

Hit and miss

I guess that's just the way it is when I have an outdoor arena and no blocks of time big enough to haul somewhere.

The week before last I got in three rides in three days (including our 'mud bath' trail ride) before our big snow fell. Last week I got in three rides in three days after the snow melted. Yesterday it poured, and today I was on the road for 5 1/2 hours and couldn't get a ride shoehorned in before or after. Right now the wind is whipping the trees around, and the rest of the week looks like this:

Looks like I might be giving Lance swimming lessons rather than schooling sessions!

At least it's warmer I guess! Hope you get to fit in a ride somewhere in there...if not, I hear that swimming with horses is fun too! ;)

Even if I wanted to, I couldn't ship out to an indoor. We are STILL snow covered and the driveway is a mess, especially with a 2WD truck. I'm just keeping fingers crossed that nothing happens that would need me to take anyone to the clinic :-o.
