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