Well, oftentimes anyway.
If the horse does it wonderfully, the temptation to get greedy and ask for another “one more time” is strong. If the horse is a stinker about it, then he gets to do it 100 more times so you don’t end on a “bad” note. It’s perhaps best to remove that whole “one more time” phrase from your repertoire.
Morgane Schmidt is a 36-year-old teacher/artist/dressage trainer/show announcer/ who still hasn’t quite decided what she wants to be when she grows up. A native Floridian, she now lives in Reno, NV, where she’s been able to confirm her suspicion that snow is utterly worthless. Though she has run the gamut of equestrian disciplines, her favorite is dressage. She was recently able to complete her USDF bronze and silver medals and is currently working on her gold. Generally speaking her life is largely ruled by Woody, a 14.2 hand beastly quarter horse, Willie, a now beastly 10-year-old Dutch gelding, and Milona DG, a 3 year old KWPN chestnut mare (you can make your own inferences there…).
