More schooling

The mini-Indian summer continued and we spent Friday out in the field without rugs.

As yesterday, Dad took me in the school after four for three quarters of an hour. We worked in walk and trot as before and eventually cantered on both reins.

Flo was being schooled cantering around the perimeter and we delayed going up into canter until we had the arena to ourselves. I was quite responsive but tended to fall out and almost leg yield in a diagonal as a kind of evasion. Dad found this interesting at high speed and will need to work on his outside leg and inside hand and nip the issue in the bud.

We had a good work out before our lesson tomorrow morning with some reasonable quality walk and trot with lots of transitions.

By the time we had finished it was dark and the lights were on in the school and Rosa had started her lesson. I was pleased to come in for grooming and tea. Hopefully, if we have a lesson tomorrow morning, Dad plans a Sunday off when rain is forecast. Cobs do enjoy a Sunday off.
