From Endurance to Dressage
Giant Ball Fail
It was worth a try. I guess it's back to feed bags and cardboard boxes.

Wow - that is thorough destruction. Hopefully he'll apply himself to dressage with the same focus. ;D

Good suggestion! I sent them a photo and a plea for mercy. :0)

Are you sure that's a horse you're riding and not a giant puppy?!
10/4/2015 09:29:36 am
The case is still out! I am waiting for the judge to make a ruling. :0)

My vote is in for giant puppy! That is...impressive?

Maybe it was a bear, or something other than the horse, or? Horses are always innocent!

I can see it being a bear. Or a lion. Or maybe a tiger as I know my precious pony never does anything wrong. :0)

Yeah. Wow. Big fat bummer. [shoulder shrug] whatcha gonna do? :0)

I think it would be pretty hard to break the rolling treat feeder, but we'll see how long mine lasts. The ball was just so much fun ... :0(

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.
