but before that, explain to me - it's a lovely night, warm, no gales, no wind.... and i was the only person riding from our yard? don't get that.
anyway, decided to do the ground work/mounting exercise.
she wasn't pleased having to do ground work, but it was certainly the way to go. she'd been sharpened up a bit (as had I!) by Saturday's exercise. So she tried it on a couple of times on the ground work front but failed in not going backwards - that is, she did - and failed in not going right - she did - and succeeded in standing still at the stool! twice. after I'd got on the first time, i decided to get off again, do a bit more ground work and then get on again!
then i couldn't do as much ridden as i would have wanted - as everyone was going. ACtually, if i'd known Gaynor hadn't arrived yet, I would have stayed on - but I thought everyone had gone .. and that was unusually late for her anyway!
blake is moving to another yard on the estate tomorrow, so Molly will have a new neighbour, pony Katie who will spend most of the summer in (laminitic...)
