Anniversary and the Dressage Husband

Yesterday was our 3 year wedding anniversary, so I thought I would devote sometime to the dressage husband on the blog today. My husband, Donnie, is one heck of a trooper. He takes the time to come to the barn with me at least once per week. He has come a very long way with Gram too! Donnie got thrown into the dressage husband role really. I was without a horse to ride a majority of the time we dated. In fact, it wasn't until after we got married that Gram was brought to Chicago! At first Donnie was hesitant to pet her... now, three years later he walks out to her paddock to get her all by himself!

Not only does he attend horse shows with a smile on his face, but he stands in the cold to video me so I can see how things are shaping up. He built my website, just for fun, and linked the blog because he thought it would be nice to track Gram's progress. I will say, he is learning right along with Gram :). So to all the husbands out there, that spent the time, sacricficing a real vacation for the World Dressage Masters in Wellington, fork over the money and support their wives with their love of horses- I salute you.
