Speedy is sound. We have a lesson with the always fabulous Chemaine in Moorpark tomorrow. We're going to a CDS-rated show on Sunday. See? Nothing to report.
And what of Izzy? In my last post I shared how well he is doing. He got that day off that I mentioned, but then it was back to work. While it's boring to write about, I couldn't be happier slogging through the basics.
Starting Izzy has been different. I am not saying I know a lot (or even a little for that matter), but it sure has been fun applying the dressage that I have learned. Someone said that starting Izzy would be a whole lot easier than it was with Sydney. Whoever you are, you were right!
From the warm up we moved into collected work. I wish I could say that this involved half passes and tempis and Very Fancy Dressage Things, but the reality of training the upper levels is that you're basically doing the same circles you were doing at the lower levels, but with shorter reins and more sweating and cursing.
