Dressage Horses!

Dressage-3

The horses work intently! I was surprised to see the foam frothing from the horses mouth.

The horses are trained to take very precise steps!

I came in early to the Pima County Fairgrounds to attend the Escapade. Dressage horses were in competition next to where I am parked in my motorhome. I spent quite a while watching them practice. I was trying to follow the different procedures they followed.

Dressage-6

I thought it was interesting to see how the horses were trained to tip their heads down.

Dressage-4

The appearance of both the horses and riders were meticulously refined.

I anticipated that most of the participants would be people in their teens and twenties; however, most of the participants were women at least my age.

I liked the contrast of the pink with the beautiful color of the horse.

There was incredible focus and determination as the riders guided their horses through the routines. Quite interesting!

Dressage-5

I thought this lady’s pink outfit was priceless!!
