Summer Sunday

Both Dads came down to ride at 10.00. It was another hot and sunny morning and both Dibbs and I went in the school. Dad wanted to sharpen up my responsiveness and I wore my double bridle. We ran through Prelim 1 and the SRC Walk and Trot and Dad was quite pleased. We may do the Prelim1 next week hors concours, in my double bridle since Kate says they won't let us compete in opposed to "compete innit?"

It was Lapworth Show today, but for the first time in several years both Dads didn't go for a look round. Bailey attended for the Working Hunter but had a bout of colic which required the vet. Fortunately after treatment, he was OK and is now recovering at home.

We were hosed down and put out to graze. Both Dads went home and Dad came back to deal with our stables at 2.30, bringing us in about 4.00 for grooming and tea. Despite the flies, we enjoyed today; it had good balance of work and relaxation. Cobs appreciate a balanced existence.
