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

This evening, exactly three weeks after she arrived, Dinah rode off into the sunset. Kate plans to ride her at home until she's sold; Dinah would make someone a flashy little dressage mount or eventer. I really enjoyed working with her and she made great progress in three weeks; all she needs now is "polishing."

I will miss having a horse in training; it is what I love to do. Lance, big red goober that he is, can only do what he is doing; with his physical limitations there is no more working up the levels so we just exercise for the good of both of us. Who knows; maybe the future holds another training project!
