"Reach high, for stars lie hidden in your soul.
Dream deep, for every dream precedes the goal."
- Mother Theresa
I was very proud of Douwe's performance on Thursday in the Coliseum. He can get excited with the larger audiences but he focused well and stole the show with his kisses, smiles, and wiggles. On Saturday we rode in the Mallory South building and he did well but was not as relaxed. For those of you familiar with the Equine Affaire you know that there isn't a proper warmup for the Mallory South building and waiting outside on the pavement isn't ideal for the horses to stay relaxed. I hope in the future that the Equine Affaire can remedy the warm-up situation to make it a safer, more positive experience for everyone involved. I would like to extend a big THANK YOU to Danielle Barrasso for organizing the breed demos and for letting me stable with her in C-Barn. Enjoy this video of Douwe in the Friesian breed demos!
