... on this mare. These photos are gorgeous but honestly they don't even do her justice. In person she is positively stunning.
Seriously, I'm in love.
I wasn't sure if I would make it to Dressage at Devon this year, because there was this whole hurricane thing, but I really wanted to see Amy ride and I guess the Universe decided to just take it easy on me for once, so the storm blew out to sea and although it was gray and a little windy, it turned out to be a nice afternoon.
Despite the chill and wind, which was making a lot of the horses more tense than usual, Amy put in a really great test. And this mare, you guys. I was keeping a close eye on the warm-up so I wouldn't miss her, but there was no chance of that. This girl stands out in a crowd.
I took a video of the test, which I uploaded and deleted from my phone... and then YouTube ate it. I really wanted you all to see what a lovely rider Amy is (she sits so still), but for now you'll have to settle for these screen shots.
Such eye candy! I have a major case of grabby hands for this mare.
Also, given that I have been a bit morose about my love life on the blog as of late, it's worth mentioning that Ethan came to Devon with me and we had a great day together, so things are looking up. Which just proves what I've been saying for years, that Devon is a magical place.
