Our highest course to date and what we have planned for March... if this snow clears!
Our dressage on Sunday went really well I am so pleased with Eva! This is our third dressage together and I signed us up for two Prelim tests (14 and 17A). I was up early in the morning to put Eva out in the field and muck out then I went back home for a … Continue reading February Dressage
