The horse in my profile photo is one of those remarkable horses that can do everything. She is not only beautiful and an excellent representative of the Canadian Horse breed, but willing and forgiving. She is now owned by a wonderful gentleman who uses her everyday to mow his lawn with a horse-drawn rotary mower.
I agree with you that dressage is a lot of hard work and you never learn it all, no matter how long you have been riding. However, the fun is in the journey. My big chestnut's name is Loewenhart which means Lion Heart in German. He is true to his name. He is a very brave and honest horse. I've had him since he was 2 years old and I was the first person on his back. He is now 16 years, so we are long-time buddies. You can tell that he is very special to me. I guess all of our horses are.
The pic was taken a couple of years ago. I'm with my granddaughter, age then 4, who is riding a pony called Ginger. The pony didn't belong to me so I'm not sure of the breeding but he does hold resemblance to your Filou. We now have a small Welsh pony mare called Venus. She is sweet but I think my granddaughter might outgrow her too soon and it's so difficult to find a good pony at a reasonable price. I'm glad to read that you are learning Dressage. That's what I ride on my big 17+h Hanoverian. It's lots of work but soo...much fun.
