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

Woot; I can RIDE!

In spite of Dozer's “help,” Rick ultrasounded Lance's injured rear suspensory again today, and gave us the green light to go back to regular riding and schooling.

We'll start preparing c-a-r-e-f-u-l-l-y for the Heart of the Valley show on Mother's Day.

Don't tell anyone that I asked for just a wee bit of trot and a canter depart in each direction yesterday just to see if the "buttons" still worked. They do. ;-)

Yah! That's great news.

Mary said...

well, quit typing and get out there! :-)

Michelle said...

Alanna, I'm doing a happy dance. Maybe I'll see you and Tarra at Heart of the Valley!

Mary, it was rainy yesterday so Lance got a day off. Today, though, is supposed to be beautiful – and I WILL be out there!

Laura said...

That'll help reduce the airs above the ground! I think Lance was bored, bored, bored!

Michelle said...

Lance IS easily bored, but I think that day was about the stiff east breeze and all the strange happenings in the neighborhood. He's been surprisingly good for a pent-up young horse!
