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

Ready or not, we're gonna have fun!
Tack is cleaned and loaded, as are show clothes. A hay bag is filled and ready to hang. Lance is bathed and wearing a sheet to (hopefully) stay clean. I did manage to flood the trailer tack room while filling the water tank in there; I need to take a plastic trash bag to stand on when I change. :-/
The cool weather will be a huge blessing; rain during the day would be less so, but we won't melt.
Rick called me this evening to toss me a curve ball. One of his draft horse clients (not the one for which Brian is driving Thursday night) needed me to drive for the Ladies Cart class at 1:00. I tried to deflect that ball to Debbie since she's going to be there with me; after all, she drove hitches for Budweiser for three years! When I couldn't talk her into it, I suggested Kate. She caught the ball and is going to run with it, so we'll get to watch her compete in the horse show tomorrow as well!
