Happy New Year

Wow!  I cannot believe I have let so much time go by without updating my blog.  It's not that I haven't been riding because I have.  Regularly too!  Boo and I are still working on rhythm, suppleness, and connection.  I think we may be working on that forever.  Boo knows how to do it...I sometimes struggle.  When we have those three things going for us we go ahead and work on straightness and collection.  We can only manage that for short periods of time. 

I am much more comfortable on Bay now too.  I don't ride him as often as I ride Boo but we have come a long way together.  I have a couple of friends that help me keep Bay exercised.  I found I just couldn't keep up with both horses and still have time for anything else.  I was burning out.  The ladies help me on Monday and Wednesday.  I ride Bay on Friday, and the DH rides him on the weekends. He's been taking him to cow sorting clinics.  It's so funny.  He has gone from dressage horse to cow horse!  I think I have the DH interested in looking into western dressage. 

I'm still working on my photography.  Having a great time with it.  Looking forward to posting a few things here now and then.  I'm also looking forward to doing some reading and catching up on all the blogs.
