The unspoiled world of senior cobs, David and Master Dibble

Location: United Kingdom

Monday, October 26, 2009


After a rainy weekend off when the clocks went back an hour, Dad took me in the school after four today.

I was much more perky and forward-going than usual and found the firmer surface much better for some rain.

We were on our own for the most part and worked in walk with lots of halt and trot transitions, softening and flexing. We added some leg-yield and shoulder-in and went up into a pacy active trot.

We worked on twenty and thirty metre circles and added figures of eight changing rein and trying to sustain roundness. We finished off on a long rein and came in for grooming and tea just as it was getting dark. Cobs cope quite well with autumn - although Dibby is still on an extra Danilon each day to ease his joints.
