Tonight we had a good ride. It was calm, it was focused and it was pleasant. Despite the fact that Alex was being chased by the horsefly from hell on the lunge (he was bucking straight up and down every time it landed/bit him), we had some pretty decent flat work once I was in the saddle!
Perhaps Boot Camp is paying off? Alex has been worked almost every day for the last two weeks (I think he's had about 3 days off?) in a myriad of circumstances. We've fought and we've made up. I can honestly say I'm happy about the work we've put in and I think we're seeing some of the benefit :-)
Tomorrow is probably going to be a lunging only day, we'll see how things go.
