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

From the ocean to the mountains

A photo from Mother's Day:

Come Memorial Day, I may have a photo of us with this beautiful backdrop:

This coming weekend we going horse-camping at the base of Mt. Adams. I am looking forward to some short trail/meadow rides on Lance; nothing too strenuous as I don't want to make him sore. Still just have the old Wintec saddle; decided not to pursue a different saddle from Mike as the shipping back and forth eats up a lot of cash and fitting a horse long-distance is practically impossible. A local saddle fitter has a bunch of saddles we can try on for size (with Suzan's input), and I'm also thinking of taking advantage of's free 21-day trial/free shipping both ways offer on all their Wintec saddles. I'm not a saddle snob; if I can find a Wintec that fits Lance and keeps him comfortable, I will be a happy horse-mom!

Would you like to try my Schlese (sp?) It fit Horton pretty well, and he, too, had a round back. I'm not using it at the moment.
