If you’re an adult amateur trying to do dressage on your own, you know this all too well.
That doesn’t mean nothing positive could be had out of it.
It was a beautiful day; no one got injured, (Sure, some barn equipment broke, but what’s a little drag and tractor maintenance…?) and parts of the day spent with horses.
Presenting; Valiosa, camouflaging behind a tree in pasture turnout.
Since no one could mistake the giant grey hippo behind the tree for, well, I don’t know, a twig(?), she had to come in and do a little jogging.
Chambon-day. (promise to keep grainy self-made shots to a minimum, but thought you’d like to see.)
Not a believer in gadgets (leaving that to Andreas Helgstrand and the rest of modern-dressage-for-profit worshipers) but a bit of stretching here and there has been very good for her.
Less than 20 easy minutes, to add variety to the week (Aaah, hoping for a trail ride next soon!) is good for the little 4-year old.
This sweet expression, every time, hiding or not. There really are no bad days with her.
Thursday – bring it on!
