Hi Dan,
I just wanted to let you know that Lio and I did our first Dressage show. I am happy to say that we won some seconds (they were in intro classes) and we had a good time. But the huge win was that we both were able to stay calm and quiet. The wind was crazy, and we had rain the second day, but we both were able to stay mostly relaxed. Even though I have owned this horse for 8 years, this is the first time I've ever felt comfortable riding him at a show. Anyway, thank you Dan for saving my relationship with my horse. I am enjoying him so more and you were our saving grace.
