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

Arena argyle

We are having an unusually wet June, so I ride Russell when I can - like yesterday. We're still walking for 15 minutes at a time, but I do throw in some lateral work (shoulder-in, travers, renvers, leg yield, half-pass) to keep it interesting and increase the required effort slightly. When I was finished, I noticed our tracks in the rain-smoothed sand made a rather nice pattern!

Lovely indeed! The footprints of life are proof that we exist, and often let us know we were there. There have been times that was important! These are lovely.
