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

Earning his keep

Not Lance (even though he did pick up my whip for me) – my son!  ;-)

I asked Brian if he'd come down and take some photos while I rode today. He agreed somewhat reluctantly, and it took some encouragement to get him to take more than a handful. I told him even the best photographers have to take a lot of photos to get a few really good ones.

Well, he took my advice and did me proud. The one above is probably his best, but I kept a total of 18 for various reasons. I like these leg shots showing all three gaits,
and I love this touch of whimsy.  :-)

I'll be sharing more of Brian's work, spread out over several posts. It's so nice to have photos!

Nice! Hey, you can ride without half chaps? I need the grip.

I tried half chaps years ago and didn't see the appeal. I don't like full-seat breeches, either.

I think Brian did a great job with the photos!
