DAD 2: Portmonteau and Korin Rinaldo, Intermediaire II, 2014

Thoroughbred-Percheron cross Portmonteau was one of the non-warmblood competitors at Dressage at Devon. Here he is, with rider Korin Rinaldo, at Intermediaire II. He's a stallion! I thought his piaffe looked wonderful -- what a solid guy. It was such a treat to see them go, and they placed well (second place in this class, I think).

DAD 1: Heather Blitz and Paragon, Grand Prix test, Friday, 2014

I have quite a bit of footage from Dressage at Devon. Friday I saw Heather Blitz and Paragon!

Remember on Jaws when Roy Scheider said, "We're gonna need a bigger boat"? I look at Paragon, and think "He's gonna need a bigger ring." Love him.

Vintage napkin rings

Vintage napkin rings from the House of Seance, $90. I've never lived in a house that used napkin rings, but for someone who entertains these are delightful!
