Got a plan to take Abbey to Onley on Sunday for the 75cm and the 85cm (if I’m feeling brave and the 75cm goes well). So tried to practice our slightly more collected canter on the flat tonight.

I didn’t put the flood lights on, thinking that I wouldn’t need them but Abbey seemed to use it as the perfect excuse to spook and loose concentration every time we went down the bottom end of the school.

She walks passed this school every day.  We’ve schooled in it countless times.  When she was new to the yard I could excuse it her sticking her ears up my nostrils everytime we passed the jump wings but its getting a bit tedious now!

Abbey did get better and we did do some good canter work in the end but it tested my patience after a full day at work and 2 hours sitting in traffic!
