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

A happy Thanksgiving

Lance and I braved the wind, rain, and a fire exhaust-breathing dragon to get in a short Thanksgiving ride today.

Rick was busy sweeping up the leaves from the drive and lawn, so I asked him to sweep the arena, too (he doesn't like me to pound the leaves into the sand footing). Since rain was imminent, I didn't wait for him to finish; I saddled up and asked Lance to share space with the roaring, horse-eating monster. He only lost his nerve once; I was really proud of him. We all ended up wet, but I was thankful for my husband's hard work, a good ride on my fine steed – and my synthetic Wintec saddle!
