Some friends have built a top notch facility nearby where they will train dressage horses. It is a gorgeous stable and large arena with state of the art footing. Beth has just started giving lessons there and I stopped by for a photo shoot. The only bad thing is that it's really making me want to ride again! The open space of the arena and leading lines of wood and beams have me itching to do a large painting, but I thought I'd experiment a bit with this little one first.
