Sorry for the lack of updates lately!
We've had a nice string of decent rides mixed in over the past few weeks/months, when the weather is warm enough to ride. We're experiencing one of Minnesota's coldest winters that I can remember, which is making riding quite difficult, to say the least.
We had been having a little bit of a riding crisis a few months ago, toying with jumping, saddle seat, western, and a whole lot of other ideas, but Louie has kinda "bucked up" and shown me that he does perhaps want to be a dressage horse after all! We haven't had time to commit to regular lessons lately as I'm only able to ride a few times a month, but once the weather warms up a bit and our travelling eases up, I envision getting back into the swing of things and maybe even going to a show this year!
Okay, I won't get too ahead of myself. For now, happy riding! And remember my two favorite quotes to live by:
"Practice makes better"
- and -
"Keep your goals high and your expectations low."
