It was only days ago that I was able to find out that I have readers from all over the globe.

That makes me a pretty happy and excited blogger!

It’s no surprise that most of my readership is here in the United States, but I’m delighted to discover that my second highest readership is from France.  Since French classical dressage is dear to me, and my first lessons in dressage were given to me in French, I guess we must be “speaking the same language,” as we say.  C’est merveilleux ca!  (c’est domage that I can’t find out how to add accents in WordPress!).

After France, it’s the UK, Canada, Ireland, the Netherlands, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, and the Russian Federation, in that order.  Thank you, dank u, dankeschon, spasiba.

And welcome to every one of my friends — from Belgium, India, Chile, Italy, Indonesia, Israel, Portugal, Columbia, Norway, Greece, the Philippines, Malaysia, Serbia, Argentina, Switzerland, Finland, Spain, Sweden, Singapore, Belarus, Poland, Iceland, Turkey, South Africa, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Bangladesh, Croatia, Thailand, Romania, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, Venezuela, Mexico and Japan.

I wish I could say that I have been able to visit all of your countries but alas, that’s not the case.  It’s hard for me to leave my horses, and that’s one of the reasons I haven’t taken a vacation in nine years (except to go to clinics, of course).

Luckily, I can still travel on the internet, as you do.  Please come back and visit again.  And share your thoughts with me.  I’d love to know what the horse life is like where you live.
