I spectated at Dressage at Devonwood yesterday, and I thought I'd share some pictures of the partnerships I found to be a joy to watch. Talented riders, happy horses. I didn't have a program, and I'm new to the area, and lazy, so I won't be able to list names.
The Friesian/JYR pair below did a flawless musical freestyle timed perfectly to the music. Fun!
The grey below was absolutely lovely in his I-1 test. Look at the reach in the trot extension!
I do know the pair below: Leslie Chapman and Quantro, from my barn, performing their PSG musical freestyle.
It was a lovely day: partly cloudy with a light breeze, around 80 degrees.
Well, today was supposed to be the day I was going to introduce Willow to the double bridle, but due to circumstances beyond my control, I only got to ride three times this week. I want to get five consistent rides in before the big day. I'm off to Nebraska next Saturday, so it'll probably be mid-August before the stars are in alignment. Good things are worth waiting for!
