Before and after dressage!

So these are my two mares. I wanted to show them off since I think that they are great examples for what correct riding can do (this does not only apply to dressage). Plus it's good for me to look back and be encouraged by progress, even though I may have just had a difficult ride.

Miss Take, my horse at home in Hawaii. This is her a couple years before I bought her when she wasnt really doing anything:


A little over three years later:



And my project, Sadie. This is her when I bought her in February:


Seven months later, still a work in progress:



Those are my girls! Feel free to post your own dressage before and afters.

Beauty is not diminished by those who refuse to see, hear,feel or in any way sense it. If you refuse to see beauty its you who is weakened.

They look great! Miss Take, I loooove the name!

Thanks for sharing, gives me hope for my new girl finding her girlish figure again :)

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

What a fantastic job you've done, I wouldn't recognize Miss Take, great name, as the same girl.

I've shared my before and after before, but hey I'll do it again, it's another dressage transformation
