I have not posted for a while and I have missed it! January was especially busy, though. I was occupied with my work–which I love–and also started a new semester teaching part-time at the University of Florida. Meanwhile, I’m still taking a dressage lesson every week and enjoying my time with Secret.
Not too much has changed in terms of my riding, but I am getting ready for another show this week end. I’m going to do the same tests I did at my last show in December: Introductory Tests A and B. I’m also planning to participate in another show in March. By then, I hope to be ready to do Introductory Test C as well.
Intro Test C includes many of the same requirements of Intro Tests A and B. What’s different about Intro Test C is that it also includes cantering.
I had a nice ride on Secret this morning and then spent some time getting her prettied up for the show. Here she is drying off after her spa treatment:
We’re looking forward to the show. I’ll let you know how it goes.
Wish me luck!
