The weather is pretty good. I am going to pony Stewie off of Joya today. Let's see how that works out, but first she must give little Leany a lesson. She absolutely loves her.
So who is going out tomorrow? I am planing to go sometime late morning early afternoon.

Last week, I started this series to help you decide how and when to introduce new work. That blog focused on Training and First Levels. What follows is Part 2 of that series.
Let's say your horse is solid at first level. Look ahead to the Second Level movements. Check out the dressage tests. You'll see that you need to work on shoulder-in, haunches-in, renvers, simple changes of lead, reinback and turns on the haunches.

There is a front coming in tonight. Clouds are moving low and fast, the wind is howling around corners, as the temperature drops like a rock. Spring and fall bring this kind of barometer-bouncing weather.
Worst of all, the horses are acting unsettled as the atmosphere. There
is a name for this kind of weather, but I don’t like to say it out loud.
If you have horses you know it too. It’s colic weather. Knock wood…
I got sad news…Continue
