The unspoiled world of senior cobs, David and Master Dibble

A grey Bank Holiday Monday out in our fly rugs. Dad took me in the school after five. We shared with Rosa and then Mary Rose without getting distracted.

As with our lesson on Saturday, we began with softening and flexing, adding some shoulder-in and leg-yield and lots of walk-trot-halt transitions, the odd rein back and upwards transition to sitting trot and upwards from walk to canter.

Dad tried to sit up and breathe with heels down and keep his hands stiller and lower with less - visibly agricultural - aids. We schooled for forty minutes and came in for a hose-down, apple and tea. I'm still nowhere near consistently round in trot but there is some improvement. Cobs are pleased to give some grounds for encouragement.
