From Endurance to Dressage
This blog post is for the "smart" phone, Facebook, LinkedIn, and other social media users.
I have set up this website and blog to have a mobile version for your "smart" phone. Open your phone's browser, access the website, and you should see it in the mobile version. You may have to change a setting with your browser's options to see the mobile version, but it is available. And here is where I should insert a commercial encouraging you to use a mobile version so that you won't miss a single post!
I have also added a "subscribe" widget (a clickable link to other stuff) over there on the right. Scroll down below my bio picture and you should see it. This is actually a cool little widget. If you open it, it will ask you how you want to subscribe and will give you over 80 apps to select from! If you do check out the subscribe widget, click on the word SUBSCRIBE, not the get widget part. That just takes you to the website where I got the widget. And since I got it for free, they get to put their little commercial below the SUBSCRIBE button which is very confusing for the reader. Very annoying!
I promise to post good stuff this weekend and will refrain from this type of "commercially" stuff. Have a great weekend!
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.
About Speedy G
Speedy went from endurance horse to dressage horse. After helping me earn a USDF Bronze medal in the summer of 2020, he is now semi-retired. Speedy is a 2004, 15'1 hand, purebred Arabian gelding. His Arabian Horse Registry name is G Ima Starr FA.
Izzy was started as a four-year old and then spent the next 18 months in pasture growing up. I bought him as a six-year old, and together, we are showing at the lower levels. He is a 2008, 16'3 hand warmblood gelding. His Rheinland Pfalz-saar International (RPSI) name is Imperioso.
