Meetings and lectures aren’t my strong suit. Anyone who knows me well knows that I avoid meetings at all costs, and tend to fall asleep in lectures. But the first session of the USDF 'L' program at the Mid-South Dressage Academy was a fun weekend jam-packed with information and lectures! A hospital visit kept me in Wellington, Fla. until the very last minute, so I drove all night to arrive a half hour before the first lecture. Whew!
