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

A shout-out to Cob Jockey!

I apologize to the rest of you, but I this is the only way I know to communicate with a blogger I follow with great interest, Cob Jockey.

I used to be able to comment on your blog, but now it requires me to "Sign in with Google" which it then won't allow me to do. 🙄😒 This happened with another blog I follow; to fix it she changed her settings to allow people to comment as "anonymous." Hope you can do the same, or something else that allows me to comment again!

Look for the bright spots!

Happy 2023, everyone. I really wanted to do a 2022 wrap-up post before the end of the year because there was so very much to relate, but obviously that didn't happen. I still want to write that post for my own records at least, but it will take a lot of time to wrangle the words and photos into shape, so don't hold your breath.

It takes far less time to tell you that 2023 has begun in proper fashion – on the back of a horse. Long-time readers will know that this is my one firm annual tradition, and today dawned bright and beautiful and dry, enabling not only being astride, but really riding. Stella and I had a lovely schooling session (with two red-tailed hawks soaring overhead) followed by a ride down the gravel lane and back, stopping to wish neighbors a happy new year along the way.

All may not well in the world nor in my smaller sphere of life, but it is well with my soul. 😊
