Tango's Up for Anything

>> Sunday, June 28, 2009

You've seen Tango in a pleasure driving competition. You've seen him competing in dressage. You've seen him at a clinic. I just found this photo of young Tango and my adorable granddaughter, Alexa, taken a few years ago. Alexa and Tango were in a lead line competition. Am I obsessed or what?

Alexa and I have the best time together. She's going to be a better rider than wait, she already is! She rides my friend's horse, Tantra now. I think in October, Alexa will be going to a dressage show too. She hopes to show in the junior divisions. Imagine that, a grandmother and granddaughter combination. Pretty cool, huh?! I do believe we're creating memories.

I can't find the photo of my grandson, Christian (he's adorable too) riding Tango but I will. Tango's great with kids. Christian is very active. It's really interesting to see the calming effect Tango has on him. All I have to do is put Christian on Tango's bare back and Tango's gentle motion takes over. My energetic grandson almost falls asleep. It's an amazing thing to see.

You know, when I first started this blog, I wondered if I could think of enough things to write about. All I have to do is look at photos (or live everyday life with my guys) and there's always something.

Also, I just realized I'm overcoming one of my greatest fears. I have let you see me in breeches. Up until I started this blog, no one saw photos of me in my skin-tight-dimple showing-riding apparel. Wow. What's happened to me? I've been having so much fun blogging, I forgot to care about how I looked. Good grief. It's a new world.

Before I forget it (like I could) my new business website is ready. You can find it at If you know anyone who needs a writer, speaker, or creative coach please share my new site. Also, I'd welcome feedback from you. I value what you think.

Nothing at either of my blogs will change...I promise. I like talking to you too much!

You look great in your riding apparel!! Besides you are posting pictures of you doing what you enjoy! Those are the best kind.

Tango certainly sounds like an incredible gentle horse.

You and Alexa should work toward a pas-de-deux freestyle to music!

It must be so exciting to see Tango proudly show off your grandkids! And you look quite smart!

Wow that is a really big doggy, oh wait I guess its not a dog. It is a really nice picture of the 2 of you and that big animal.

Cute picture. I think a grandaughter and grandmother combo is pretty cool!

Girl to girl - Just so you know... I can't see any dimples in the photos!! Aren't you relieved?

Love the outfits you girls are wearing. Grandma and Granddaughter....sweet. She'll have great stories to tell people. You're not the average grandma

A great horse is a treasure. A granddaughter to share him with is even better. Nope, I don't see dimple either!
