The Central Alberta Western Style Dressage Association held their first Schooling day of the year at Fultonvale Arena this past weekend. The weatherman forecast wind, but thought we could beat the wind by going earlier. I was wrong. And you know what? Riding green horses outside for the first day of the year in the wind is perhaps not the best idea. Particularly when there are banging metal shutters, gates that won’t stay closed, and trees falling in the forest (with horses there to hear them). Fortunately Dani was too busy peeing and flirting with the boys to be too bothered, but Friday thought it was quite exciting…at least he looked good.
If anyone is interested in trying western dressage, just let me know. They are holding some online (video submission) shows this year that might be fun to enter!
