|My dew laced weather vane|
Dawn is starting to sleep in as the kids go back to school. Heavy dew drips from the corn and the infernal heat of summer is only an ember most days. All the signs that Villa Louis Carriage Classic is right around the corner.
With the strength and conditioning phase of training over, Don Pecos and I are working on elasticity and form. This is the most difficult part of the training curriculum, but also the most rewarding. I must convince the horse to repackage his strength from stamina into performance. While Don Pecos never complains, he just 'pretends' that he doesn't 'get' it, perhaps with the hope that I will give up or the season will end. But I know he has it inside. I just have to get it out in two weeks for the show. And before winter wraps us in her long, cold embrace.
