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

We get by with a lot of help from my friends!

After posting about looking for the perfect bit, two of my blogpals emailed with offers. Laura (who has also become a dear friend IRL) sent me an oval-link eggbutt snaffle that is too small for her new horse, and Theresa sent me TWO bridles that she isn't using!

I put Laura's bit on the silver-accented bridle and rode Larry in it after the show on Sunday, but it was too dark for photos by then. Fortunately, we had time for another ride this afternoon. Here is Larry, handsomely (and happily) attired thanks to our friends!

You header shot is gorgeous. Would that be you riding? You have nice friends...sending you all that stuff.

Yes Lori, that is me on Russell in the header. I sadly had to retire Russell after a long string of injury/rehab cycles; I gave him away to the perfect retirement home at the end of December. And YES! I have some wonderful friends and blogpals. :-)

It certainly cleaned up nice after 3 years of tack room dust. Glad someone is getting some use out of it. He sure looks handsome in silver and black!
