From Endurance to Dressage
I know I mentioned this briefly a time or two, but now it's here (or will be very early tomorrow morning)! That's right, we're going on vacation. In case you missed it, Hubby and I will soon be in Belize with a side trip to Tikal in Guatemala.
We have quite a trip planned: zip lining, rappelling, cave-tubing(!), snorkeling, swimming with nurse sharks and sting rays, fishing, and of course, horse back riding! Not only will we be riding (hopefully - weather can be an issue) in the jungle, but we're riding to some Mayan ruins. Cool, huh?!
You can read more about riding with duPlooy's here. We'll be in the jungle for most of our vacation, but then we're headed to Ambergis Caye, one of Belize's many islands, for the remainder of our trip.
I look forward to catching up with you all when we get back. You should expect to see me blogging by the middle of June at the latest. See you soon!

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.
