Lightening it up

More schooling this morning. The warm and dry weather continued and so we tried to make the best of it. We worked on the elements covered in our last lesson, so there was plenty of walk, shoulder-in, leg-yield, transitions and softening lateral work. We also practiced sitting trot and transitions to nine of ten strides of controlled canter, which went well.

Earlier Dad had found me a little more resistant today, but thought this might be due to a need for a change of routine. It was unfortunate we weren't able to get to Solihull either time last week. We need to go out to a party some time soon. Unfortunately details of the autumn seasons competitons at the club aren't out yet, so we can't plan. We will have to go in the field tomorrow, if it's still unoccupied.

To lighten things up before finishing, we went round the school with Dibby which was fun. We went out to four hours in the afternoon before coming in for grooming and tea. Dad asked if we could use the field by the school in the week, but Leo is turned out there each morning, so we can't. The large area at the back of our field is unoccupied in the mornings and we can use that. Twice on grass in one week; not exactly over-indulgence, but cobs are rarely spoiled.
