From Endurance to Dressage
Uh-oh ... I think there may be some technical difficulties with the website, but I am not sure ...
I use a MacBook which makes all things audio/visual VERY easy to use. Creating and publishing videos, photos, or music is a breeze. To make sure that things are displaying correctly, I try to view the blog and website with two different web browsers, Safari or Firefox. Apparently they're not ...
A friend pointed out that Speedy's dental video didn't display correctly. I booted up my old Dell, which doesn't get to surf the web very often, and saw what she was talking about. Only two thirds of the video was showing. Hmmm ... On top of that, the website did not display at all how it does on my Mac. The text portion was very narrow as was the column that contains my bio, Archives, and Categories. The rest of the screen had huge chunks of empty black space. (I was using an older version of Internet Explorer.)
I have since re-published the video in a smaller format which helped the viewing on my old Dell. I also used Firefox as my browser and saw that the page did display correctly. My guess would be that my version of Internet Explorer needs to be updated. So ... if the page looks funky, try updating your browser, or use a different one.
I will also do some additional research as to WHY things might not be displaying correctly. In the mean time, in an effort to improve your viewing pleasure, will you let me know how things display correctly on your computer? Just comment with which browser you use and a yep, or a nope.
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.
