This year’s weekend fall benefit dressage show was held at the Reins of Life facility in Michigan City, Indiana. I have posted about my previous appearances at their facility in South Bend, Indiana but had never been to Michigan City. The grounds in Michigan City are truly lovely, and fortunately the weather cooperated too and we had warm temps and lots of sunshine–along with one afternoon of wind gusts. For my part, my booth was indoors (which was convenient–it kept the wind from blowing everything around). I can’t say enough about therapeutic riding–it just about brings tears to my eyes every time I go to Reins of Life because I can appreciate how much the volunteers and the horses do for so many people with so many varied physical, emotional and mental issues. If you’re interested in finding out more about it, you can just click here. This little blurb from their website may tempt you to explore further: “Reins of Life now serves over 500 riders with 3,000 hours of lesson time annually for residents of 10 counties in Indiana and Michigan.” Pretty darn amazing!
As usual, I peeked around outside to watch some of the dressage competition and also worked on a couple more little Aquabord™ watercolors. I’ll leave you alone with the photos to tell the story!
