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

Schizo weather

Some years, weather is "typical," with average temperatures and rainfall. Other years, the weather wobbles all over the place . . . like THIS year.

Last week we had record high lows; now it's unseasonably cold. I couldn't ride Friday because of driving rain and wind; today I could only ride a short time, slowly and carefully, because the arena footing is frozen hard. Between the weather and a new part-time job, I may have to get creative (midnight rides like Paul Revere?) to fit in time with my mental-health mustang!
