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

Hello, love

Remember the soundtrack that first came to my mind for Lance? He demonstrates how well it fits him nearly every time he sees me. Not the best for picture-taking, but it sure does my heart good to have that pretty head pop up and then head my way. :-)

Lance's Cavallo tenny-runners are still working well, as is my beat-up old Wintec saddle. Gone are the right canter departure issues and the difficulty with lateral work – things that I thought were green-horse strength and training issues.

We are planning to take the horses camping up at Mt. Adams over Memorial Day weekend with our Christian trail-riding club, if the weather doesn't look too miserable. I can't wait to show off my pretty boy to the group, and ride him through equally pretty scenery. I just hope we can keep him safely contained in camp!

My gosh, Michelle, he is such a beauty! I'm glad he's a friendly sort of guy, too!

He is such a cutie... I wish I could go camping, but a dyeing I will be!! Also very glad that the boots are working - I would have felt badly if they didn't, having recommended them so highly!!
