Dressage Horse Training: The cross country drive

Dressage Horse Training: The cross country drive

I have to say the trip to Florida was blessedly uneventful.  We found a round trip ticket for Kris from Fort Meyers to Denver and back so Kris was able to make the trip with me.  I had planned to go alone but it was much better to have a second brain involved in driving and finding the horse hotels.  Before we left we did our check list—changed oil in the truck, check the lights, got health certificates—you know, the long list of picky details to attend to for a long trip. My horses are used to turnout so I found overnight spots in pasture so I think this helped the horses mentally and physically to be able to move around for 12 hours and roll.

Special thanks to Susan DeSylva and Andrea Doelling for having dinner and discussing planning and lessons learned–this helped make my trip smooth.

Good Riding,
