Scream if you want to go faster

So for the last couple of weeks, William and I have been concentrating on our flatwork, all be it, at times, at breakneck speed.

I am very lucky and Will has naturally very nice paces but producing the good work and not tipping him over the edge is proving to be hard.

I am getting some fantastic work out of him, and I am really pleased he is feeling so well but I am at the stage where one minute we are floating across the arena to the next flying sideways, forwards, backwards and any which way across the other side of the arena. I havent quite worked out where that line know, the fine line between lovely and crazy.

On Tuesday of this week, myself and another girl off the yard, decided to hire a lovely arena 10 minutes away to give the horses some schooling at a different enviroment ready for when William gets out and about. He worked so nicely in places, I had strangers saying how lovely he was but the conversation went a bit like this...

"oh, he is lovely isn't he, he looks so well"

Forward 5 minutes to ....

"oh, are you ok over there?"

My achy arms and jelly legs are getting quite a work out at the moment, but we will get there, it will just take a bit of time and hard work I think. Just wish me luck for when the poles come out!!!!!!!!!
