Relable, sound, all around good guy. The kind of horse you could ride down mainstreet in the Fourth of July parade and without batting an eye.
Chrome Baby! The flashiest 18 hh warmblood out there, with gaits that would launch you into outer space if you weren't wearing your full-seats.
A seasoned school-master, one who could really teach you the art of dressage. We learn so much better from our horses than our trainers.
Which ever one I felt the deepest personal connection to on my test ride.
Whatever was left on the floor after yesterday's ride - no one but my horse sees me anyway and they are the only one who matters.
Full Seat Breeches by Professional's Choice...so comfy and they keep you in the saddle during unexpected turbulance.
OOOOHHH, the choices! Perhaps my leopard print pink Pikeurs, or maybe my deerskin custom breeches that make my butt look so nice...it's really hard to decide.
A t-shirt, jeans and paddock boots - what's the point in having to change before I muck stalls?
A $4,500 Hermes, new this week because the custom one you bought last month wasn't quite the right hue of black.
A great used Kieffer that you just had re-adjusted last week, fits like a glove!
A $250 jobbie that you picked up from a tack swap 3 years ago...it's not the saddle, it's the skill and intention of the rider that matters.
No Saddle! I'm riding bareback all week to improve my seat (even if I have sores on my nether-regions from the last three rides...no pain no gain, people!).
Really tried to look deep inside them and found the one who could best help me become one with my horse.
Went with the one who was just around the corner! It's so great being that close because I can be there ALL the time!
Went to all the shows and found the trainer who yelled the least at her students..I love dressage but don't enjoy public humiliation.
Found the biggest name within 150 miles. You pick the best trainer you can afford to give yourself the greatest chance of performing well and winning the most awards.
Has an eclectic mix of riders from all disciplines. We all learn from each other and enjoy our horses to the fullest. A horseback rider is a horseback rider, right?
Is a little red one that just fits my two horses perfectly. it's not much to look at but at least I can have them at home where I know they are looked after properly.
Is ALL Dressage ALL the time, baby! There is more bling and drama here than the red carpet at the Grammys!
A great place that offers the best hay, blanket service, and good footing in the indoor arena.
I am out enjoying friends and family, you need to balance your life with non-horse stuff too.
I am online searching through the latest advice in the dressage forums. You can always learn more!
I am auditing the closest Natural Horseman ship clinic. I will do anything to figure out why I can't get my horse on a trailer.
I show horses, who has spare time?
