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

We've been having snow flurries since Saturday night, to go with the flurry of horse-hunting activity. After Sunday's shopping, I was feeling pretty subdued about my prospects. Then today I stumbled upon some horse ads when placing an ad for sheep on a site I didn't even know had a place to advertise horses! I called about a broodmare (broke to ride) that is "very affordable to a good home," and learned about another horse the owner has which is available for lease - this handsome fellow:
He looks wonderful, sounds wonderful, and is even eliciting a somewhat positive reaction from the husband. I'm hoping to go meet him this Sunday!

Oh Michelle, Fingers crossed this one works out, he's certainly a handsome fellow and such a perfect color.;)
We can't help ourselves, those red horses just do it for us. I hope on some of the more important points he's a winner for you too.

I've just finally sat down and caught up with your horse blog. Goodness I cried when I realised that you'd been brave enough to send Russel off to a new home, but it sounds as though he has gone to the right spot. This chestnut chap looks lovely, I hope he turns out to be the special friend you're looking for.
