Monthly Round-Up: What You Should Not Have Missed On Dressage Hafl in May 2016

Don't you hate it when you do not have enough time to read all the interesting things on the internet? And once you have time, you will never find those interesting articles again. You are not alone - that is why I decided to round up the best blog post of each month for you. You're welcome!

We do real work: train him to build the muscles to stand the ever increasing movements, training me to become a better supporter, better communicator. He has to his jobs and I have to do mine. To get a step closer to harmony every time we ride[...]

Thinking back on last year when preparing my freestyle feels like this year is a total mess (even my first ever freestyle seems like a miracle to me right now)[...]
