But here I am with a big dressage goal and nothing really written down or formulated even in my head about jumping.
|March trainer ride|
Dressage not only allows for an ammy needing a pro ride now and then, it makes room for it. There are awards for achieving a score at a certain level. Medals for achieving scores across several levels. Dress code to (somewhat) permit sparkly things.
|April practice ride|
All I need is a saddle and a snaffle bridle and maybe a flat surface to ride on. I can literally ride intro through fourth level* with the set up I have now (though I might need to cave and buy a show shirt).
|June horse show|
**Never fear, western Courage fans. New outfits and fun plans are in the works. We can't do competitive prancing all the time.
