    FOTD:Here’s looking at you kid.

    Seen at a horse show at White Fences Equestrian. I thought this looked like a pair of eyes looking at me. “Here’s looking at you kid!” My response to Cee’s Flower of the Day challenge.

  • So Many Details. So Little Time.

    So Many Details. So Little Time.

    Dressage is all about the details. There are an infinity of details that must be remembered and carried out. Focusing on the details is the Lens Artists challenge this week given to us by Patti. This is a tough one for me as my dressage life is all about details. Endless details! But how can…

    Happy Birthday Biasini!

    On January 17, 2005, in the North of Germany, four little hooves hit the ground. This little fellow grew up to be branded into the Hanoverian Verband. His breeder Inga Bulle knew she had a nice colt and she gave him the name Biasini. His father was Belissimo M and his mother Diva ( she…

    Looking Back to Happy Memories

    This weeks Lens Artists Photo Challenge comes to us from Journeys with JohnBo. Since most of us are in lockdown he invites us to ‘go back’ and visit places through our photos. As many of you know I am missing my horse Biasini. He is only 15 minutes away by car but due to the…

    You’ve Got to Laugh!

    In times like this when chaos, confusion and a mass panic of toilet paper buying it is necessary to possess some sangfroid and the ability to laugh. Humor can be a lifesaver!

    I’m taking it as a win!

    With the best of humor I offer you my show diary from this past weekend. Friday: Follow the Signs. I awoke with a bad case of the dizzies. This is something that pops up perhaps once in two years with me. A little granule in my inner ear decided to go walk about and my…

    My competition. Here’s what worked and what didn’t!

    What worked White Fences. I enjoy showing at White Fences Equestrian. The Show Office is helpful and well organized. The music for my freestyle is played promptly when I signal for it. The speakers are clear and the volume is just right. The footing is excellent. I rode on Saturday after a torrential Florida rain…

  • Time to Dance!

    Time to Dance!

    This weekend Biasini and I will be “Puttin’ on the Ritz” and doing our Freestyle at the White Fences show. It is always the moment of truth entering the ring at A and going down the centerline to salute the judge. Things that were brilliant in the home arena may not be quite the same…

    Hot Climate or Cold Climate?

    “We got through the summer!” This was a comment I heard on a sheep station in central Australia years ago. I thought that in many parts of Canada we talk about ‘getting through the winter’. When I heard the Australian speaking about getting through the summer I thought I would rather ‘get through’ heat than…
