It started off on Friday with dressage day at the local All Breed Horse Show. I competed in two training level tests and one first level test. Overall I was really pleased with my rides and our improvement from last year though my scores were lower than I had hoped.
On Saturday I joined a few friends on a trip to Calgary for Charlotte Dujardin's Masterclass Clinic! It was an inspiring day and also seemed to be a gathering of almost everyone in the Alberta dressage world.
Sunday I had a much-needed lesson with Elaine, followed by a conference call meeting of the Alberta Dressage Association executive.
I will write fuller recaps of the show, clinic, and lesson but overall it was a cool combination of all facets of my involvement with dressage in one weekend. I truly love this sport and the last few days have left me more inspired and determined than ever to work hard and progress as best I can.
