DANCE of the Horse

I recently found an interesting challenge over at Paper Secrets.  It's a Sketch Challenge with a word theme.  The word for this challenge is DANCE.  Well, when I saw that, my mind went to Dressage.  I dug out some old pictures of Keith showing Harry in a 4-H Dressage Class and went at it!
Dressage actually started as a form of English riding used to train horses for war.  It is an old art of training.  When done correctly, it is absolutely beautiful!  The training technique is so beneficial, Western riders have now adopted it and there are classes in Western Dressage at many of the breed and open shows.  

Ok, enough history on Dressage.  I could go on and on............, but instead I'll tell you about my layout!
