    Smile Bring on the season!!!

    First ever dressage clinic/lesson with my horse, and he was such a rock star!! He really started figuring things out, and was trying so hard to put his body in the correct form and use his muscles! I was so proud. Our instructor made the comment "He's got a big stride for a little guy, with a big engine!"

    I know it's just the first *real* dressage ride, and we'll have a lot of frustration (he was thinking about shoulder ins so hard I could hear the wheels grinding!), but it was SO reassuring to hear a highly rated rider, trainer, and judge say that he's got what it takes. It just made my day, and I couldn't have been any more proud!!

    And, I was able to con DH into being our driver/photographer. They're not the greatest of pics, but they're proof we're trying!!

    SOO excited! Just had to share!!

    "Okay..I think this is where my head goes..."

    Love this one...

    Exaggerated shoulder in...

    Tired pony!
