Yesterday, Oct 2, 2004, Gordon taught a short cavalry class for the West Kingdom, SCA Equestrian event. It was lots of fun. I went along as squire "Bob" to help out and be another experienced (more or less) horse soldier. Taxi was a trooper as always, and even Twister pulled his weight and managed to run the "saber course" without being spooked by the "saracen heads"! He's going to be a fine cav horse for his new owner! I managed to do the "slalom" course with Taxi at the canter, which is a huge improvement in my riding "skills" from last Spring, when a trot was all I could manage. Dancing more, doing Pilates, and riding more have really helped my physical condition.
