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

All the king's horses

I was so happy to have Lance treated Monday that I forgot my promise to post Perrydale Trails pictures. Sorry!

Kate brought Lance's girlfriend and a very green five-year-old Quarter Horse she bought as a project for her daughter. I have a feeling Lance might be torn between his "best girl" Dinah and this new girl once he meets her; his dam is palomino.  ;-)

Here's Welsh Cob/Trakehner Dinah modeling the green fly veil I got her when I bought Lance's.

Amber (the palomino) did incredibly well!

This couple from our Christian trail-riding club came to ride with our dressage chapter. The red roan is a Tennessee Walking Horse and the little bay is a Paso Fino.

There were a LOT of other riders at Perrydale Trails Sunday mounted on horses of all colors, sizes, and breeds. I admired this couple's mounts; he's leading on an Appaloosa and she is following on her Lipizzan.

This is the oldest member in our dressage chapter; JoAnn is in her 80s and still going strong. I hope I can sit a horse so well in another 30 years!

Oh my those are some handsome horses. You just don't see many appy's in my neck of the woods nor gaited horses. And JoAnn's mount is beautiful and striking.

It really is a fun place, Sara!

I forgot to mention that JoAnn's horse is a Paint.

I also saw a Missouri Foxtrotter, a couple warmbloods, a Belgian/Haflinger, several Arabians, and, I suspect, a mustang or two.
