UPDATE TIME! This horse has turned out to be simply amazing! He is sweet, willing, and has not got a mean bone in his body. He takes very good care of beginner me and is doing great in his training! I am so in love! I am so lucky to have some very high level dressage riders/trainers that are willing to help us both and I have learned so much. I am so glad I did not pass him up. He is learning arena work quickly and is so elegant looking! Here is my baby all dressed up!
2 months later and this horse has turned out simply amazing! I may be showing at my first schooling show in December! My trainers love him and are very excited that we have made so much progress. I certainly took on a challenge when I took on Dressage after being out of the saddle for 25 years on a horse that has never done Dressage! I will say that I have become a very dedicated rider, riding at least 5 days or nights a week, often after work. This is certainly a sport that takes some intense practice time, but I still love every single minute of it. Hopefully I will get some new pics up tomorrow!
