Some non-dressage news: my primary computer is in the computer hospital awaiting a doctor visit. Coffee spilled on a keyboard can wreak havoc with delicate techno-parts. It could be there awhile if replacement parts are needed. In the meantime I am using my ancient Dell which can only run one program at a time, frequently crashes, and makes loud, unpleasant noises as it works.
I did go to the GEAHS Open Dressage Show on Saturday. As it might turn out to be a long piece, I may post it in parts. Check back later for part 1.
