The unspoiled world of senior cobs, David and Master Dibble

Location: United Kingdom

Monday, November 20, 2006


After our poor performance in yesterday's lesson, we went back in the school this morning. We worked mainly in walk trying to regain relaxation and to stretch down initially and then become rounder and on the bit on a shorter rein. This was working reasonably well and we had trotted around the arena a few times when it started to rain and so we came in.

We had schooled for forty minutes or so and so Dad put Dibby and me out to graze. The afternoon was dry and we came in for grooming and tea just before it started to rain again. Dibby had a small overreach on his near hind which Dad treated with salted water and purple spray. Fortunately, as well as being a very senior cob, Dibby is generally hardy.
