This right here, riders!

#TipTuesday: Every corner is an opportunity. They are where the next movement begins, so don’t blast through them. And practice them, so they’re not a thing that you only attempt when someone in a little judge’s hut is watching - make them your default setting ⚙️

Orion is a 21 year old, OTTB who came to Dressage a bit later in life. He suffered a major injury to his pelvis in a starting gate accident many years ago. As a result, he’s never been able to move evenly behind and struggled to canter when I first met him 5 years ago. Through consistent work by his owner/rider Laurie, he has developed enough strength and balance to carry himself correctly with regularity. However, he still needed to build his top line and increase his symmetry, especially off his weaker right hind leg. In order to accomplish this, Laurie began riding him in the Equicore 4-5x a week. The difference in just six weeks is incredible! Orion is able to move so much more freely and with power from behind.

Hard to believe this sweet 😇 face could ever be naughty, but…

There is a tradition at Agape Dressage, dating back to Show Team with Dorie Vlatten Schmitz when I was a wee rugrat, to ask “Permission to Dismount” before an unauthorized dismount. In the event that a rider fails to ask permission before hitting the ground, treats must be brought to the barn to share with everyone.

Autumn brought these delicious chocolate chip walnut cookies for everyone and the Universe is once again in balance. 🍪

Guess who just did her first line of 4 tempis?! Autumn is my working student this summer, and one of the perks is lessons on The Professor, aka Theo, a GP schoolmaster. They got the 4s on the first try, easy peasy. Being able to ride other horses besides one’s own is highly beneficial.

No one understands us.
 
The yummy mummies at school pick up don’t understand why we arrive with a car covered in dirt, straw in our hair and a questionable stain on our well-worn breeches.
 
Our doctors don’t understand when we laugh at suggestions we shouldn’t ride until the cast is off.
 
Our friends don’t understand why the qualifying show with its early morning start is more important than another night out with the girls.
 
Our relatives don’t understand why we’d rather spend our money on the new horsebox than a holiday in the sun.
 
Our mates who play sport don’t understand that the commitment goes beyond the training, goes beyond the competing, goes beyond the participation.
 
We understand. We are galloping housewives. We know the costs. We know the sacrifice. We know it’s worth it.
 
We understand.
 
We are galloping housewives.

So long for the summer, Glenna and Henry!! I’m not jealous at all that you’re escaping the Tucson triple digit heat for the cool mountain air. Not. At. All. 😜 See you in the Fall when cooler temps prevail. Until then, enjoy your lessons with Dolly!

I am still in shock. Dr. Taylor was a great vet with a wealth of knowledge that he shared with all. More importantly, he was a wonderful human being. He leaves a lasting legacy in his family and the horse community but he will be dearly missed. My deepest condolences and prayers to his family.

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved Dr. Scott Taylor(3/18/63-5/14/22).
We have been mourning the loss of a role model, a friend and great family man, who made an impression on anyone he met.
Dr. Taylor had been a partner and board certified surgeon at Arizona Equine since 1993.
He will be dearly missed and we know he would want us to continue with our regular practice standards of care.
Our clinic hours will remain the same.
There will be a celebration of life ceremony in several weeks to come.

Even though I’m visiting my sister to help with her husband as he begins radiation and chemo for brain cancer, I managed to sneak in a workout. Hoping not to lose too much fitness while away from the barn. Thanks, Joseph, for creating a plan for me even when I can’t be in the gym! I may have worked out underneath a ‘62 Corvette, but I still got it done. 👊🏼💪🏼

Wishing Martha a safe and wonderful Summer. She leaves this week for Seattle and other fun destinations as she escapes the Tucson heat. Her trusty steed, Happy, gets to stay with me for the summer as we continue to strengthen his 3rd level work and try to help install the canter pirouette button. Have a great summer, Martha!! Everyone at Team Agape will miss you!! 🏔☀️
