went over to the arena to see if we could do better than we did yesterday; had to wait 1/2 hour for someone to finish their longlining lesson, and then we did indeed do better than yesterday!
interestingly, she's doing some lovely canter on the lunge these days, i used not to be able to get it at all;
it wasn't the best lunging she's ever done, a bit speedy but not unbalanced, but since she hasn't been in work over the winter that was no matter, the point was for her to go the way i wanted until i said stop
she had one glitch towards the end - second time going right (which was of course always her least favourite direction) when she challenged me a couple or three times and had to be corrected and set away again
i found the thing then was to let her out as far a possible to canter and then draw back in to trot...
all the while could hear Charlie shouting for her from away across the other side of the river!
