Along with that fun piece of news another fun piece is that if you open up your Dressage Today magazine there is an awesome article on Gypys in dressage and there might be a pictures of us in there :) Kind of cool!
He is back in work but we are taking it slow. Today was the first day that I have really asked him much of anything past training level work/frame. It is amazing how out of practice we both are, so glad no one was there to watch me ride. It did not feel pretty, but it felt so nice to be back on him and actually working instead of plunking (which we are very good at doing). I tried to be really conscious of the fact that we are out of practice/shape so would only ask for small amount of the harder work before giving him a break. There is no sense in rushing it now. Overall he is feeling great, we definitely have a lot to work on to get to where we left off but we are slowly chipping away.
