In this photo I am enjoying a jazz dance with Rovandio. He is getting so much better at his liberty work, graduating to just the neck rope. Hopefully soon he will be able to perform without it. He is a lot different than Douwe but is learning at his own pace and I am starting to see his personality blossom. I love this quote because it sums up the nature of liberty work. It truly is an improvised dance between human and horse. Wonderful things happen spontaneously and I savor the moments that something unexpected but magical happens. This photo was taken by Kimberly Chason. Please share this quote with anyone that might appreciate it.
"Other dancers may be on the floor
Dear, but my eyes will see only you
Only you have that magic technique
When we sway I go weak
I go weak..."
- lyrics from Sway by the Pussycat Dolls
This video was taken at the Elysium Sport Ponies Open House November, 2015. I was SO happy with this routine! As some of you know, I was injured the week before and wasn't able to practice. I decided last minute to ride to the song "Sway", one of my favorite songs that I performed to with Rovandio at the Equine Affaire last year. I knew the transitions of the music inside and out, and it has a fun, playful vibe. Enjoy our dance routine and please share with anyone else that would appreciate it. Thanks!
