Balance of advantage

A reasonably bright morning. Dad came at 10.30 just in time for a heavy down-pour of rain. After fifteen minutes or so it cleared and so we went into the school. The new mirrors had been pt up at the far end of the school , but I didn't shy. We worked in walk and trot and concentrated on going forward and gaining roundness. We practiced leg-yield, shoulder-in and fore and halt walk transitons. In trot we worked on moving into the bridle and moving from behind.

Dibby joined us after thirty minutes or so and schooled too.

We spent a couple of hours in the field and came in before 4.00 jut before it started to rain again. There were group lessons with Liz arranged for 5.30 and 6.30 but we didn't take part this time. Dad spoke briefly to Liz and confirmed our private lesson for 18 March and discussed my progress and Dibby's health.

I was pleased to avoid the rain this evening and get on with my tea and haylage. Cobs understand where the balance of advantage lies.
