nonetheless, decided to ride, and got really NICE trot - molly did try to wrestle the contact down a couple of times, but with some finger tweaks and pushing on she desisted.
tried a turn down the centre line in trot, which i hadn't tried before, a shade wobbly, but not too bad and nice left turn at the end which was good.
I didn't do a huge amount, my chin felt like a block of ice - the buff I've got to keep my head warm under the hat was sitting here on the desk, not helpful!
forecast for colder tomorrow, from the arctic, and snow tomorrow night/monday.
Arena had been harrowed & rolled, which got rid of a lot of the "divot type" lumps
researched the internet this afternoon and think i'll struggle to find a barrow that I like!
