More to come...

I haven't posted because I have been extremely busy riding and writing and taking many, many pictures. Today was our Interdressage competition. A dressage test taken off the site and is ridden, video taped and sent in to be judged against riders all around the world for real rosettes and real money. The creator of the site, Karina joined us to judge our show and give some of the riders pointers for a better dressage test.
Everyone but one rider was bitless. In the end she did ride her test again bitless and did wonderful scoring a little above the bitted test.

I do not have a lot of time to post it all now so for now I will leave you with a few highlights from the last two days.

Ponies jumping through ditches.

Zoe riding Collin.

Rebel's fear of the saddle pad,

And getting over the fear of the saddle pad.

On to saddling.

Bit


To bitless

I'll be around to your blogs when I get back home next week. Home, if only it was not so far away I could bring my horse here. What fun we would have.

Loved the bit to bitless photos - and the score was better without the bit! No wonder. The horse looks so great in the second photo!

The girl riding the horse wouldn't even look at my pictures though showing how relaxed the horse was in the bitless. I think she was just doing it to amuse us because every other competitor there was in a bitless bridle.
