It's All About That Walk

Rumor has it that you are patiently waiting for my trip report of The Spanish Riding School as a result of the Heldenberg Training Center Fund in Memory of E.L. Dreitzler for The Dressage Foundation. Not to worry, I brought home copious notes and drawings (sticks and shapes?), as well as Andreas Hausberger’s (Chief Rider), brilliant and timely quotes along with 300+ stunning photos on my camera.

A Thousand Years From Now

I hope that the possibility to dream is still alive for that little girl or boy sitting at the edge of a dressage ring; the one who is not building castles with moats, but instead fixated on their favorite international-level horse and rider combination, secretly hoping for a chance to meet and obtain an autograph and then perhaps one day finds them self in similar stirrups.

April is a birthday month for us! My beautiful mare had her birthday on April 1st. She savored some delectable banana cake treats made especially for horses. My birthday is April 19th. As a child I would sing with great gusto (many months in advance) “April the 19th soon will be here," to remind anyone who might have been within earshot, of this momentous occasion.

The Type Of Suitcase Doesn’t Matter As Long As My Boots Fit

I find myself surrounded by colorful hand written checklists of the post-it-note variety. A new checklist seems to self-generate as my trip preparations multiply themselves. Clearly, what I need right now is a designated starting point, so I’ve decided to ‘start’ with the purchase of a new suitcase with ample wheel rotation for those planes, trains and subways.
