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

Stepping it up

No supermodels this week; we're too busy getting ready for our first horse-camping trip of the year!

Rick checked Lance's right front suspensory with the ultrasound this week and said it's looking really good. Lance is feeling good, too. I've been putting the Renegade boots on his front feet and he feels much more forward when wearing them. We took our most ambitious ride of the year through the woods Tuesday evening.

The horses are getting up to three hours of pasture a day now, and Lance is showing it.
Good thing we're cleared to up our exertion level!

Enjoy yourself, sounds like a wonderful event on the horizon and a healthy horse too boot! All good.

It was short but sweet, Sylvia (the best kind of camping; ha!).

Yes, the future is looking a little brighter, Theresa!
