There's been a lot of discussion these days about dressage in the show ring vs dressage as the average amateur experiences it. The spectacular vs the 'classical'. FEI as a show producer vs ... An…Continue

Well, on Saturday my baby boy re-starts the starting process. I'm finding it quite disturbing. I have the best professional I know working with him (and I'm involved, even if it's only watching). So, I was pondering why this was bothering me. I think it's because right now he's just unlimited potential. Once he's started, reality kicks in. Of course I will love him no matter what happens. If he's not a dressage horse, so be it. If he's not a high level dressage horse, so be it. …Continue

Well, my little girl has an owie, I'll call a vet in the morning. Took me two days to figure out which leg it was in. She doesn't like to make things easy on me. She's all clipped up and looking fantastic. She's the only horse I know that is the same colour clipped as she is not clipped, and just as shiny. I do love my little angel.
Back to lameness. She's got a slight swelling on the right fore around the fetlock. Current theory is that she tweaked herself (doesn't…Continue
