From Endurance to Dressage
A Quick Funny ...
Yesterday's show went really well, but I need a day or so to write it up. For today, here's that funny graphic that's been going around on Facebook.
The babies icon cracks me up. I don't have kids, on purpose, but it makes you wonder why anyone would have them when you can have a dragon or a horse for the same amount of effort but with a higher fun factor.
I am guessing most baby owners would disagree. When I get a dragon, I'll let you know if they're really all that much fun.

I have a feeling that this graphic is a bit like preaching to the choir. :0)

I have always dug dragons. I grew up reading Anne McCaffrey's Dragon Rider's of Pern series and so wanted my own dragon. I love horses, but who could turn down a dragon?!

About the Writer and Rider
I am a lifelong rider.
I began endurance riding in 1996 where I ultimately completed five, one-day 100 mile races, the 200-mile Death Valley Encounter, and numerous other 50, 65, and 75 mile races. I began showing dressage in 2010.
Welcome to my dressage journey.
