Riding Under the Bright Lights

Galahad and Cookster are spending the week at my instructor’s yard.  As they went for the back check on Friday and will be staying until at least Sunday for the dressage, it seemed like a good opportunity to use the school.

I have been working all week so my riding has been restricted to after work hours.  Obviously it is dark then but being away means we have the luxury of lights!

Cookster has never been ridden under lights before but, although he was a bit nervous about them (or the inpenetrable darkness behind them) at first, he settled really well and we had one of the best schooling sessions we have ever done.

Galahad is used to the lights but has been having a few days off after his back check.  I was allowed to start lunging him today and I think I can see some improvement in his movement which is good news.  I will be able to ride him again on Saturday so I’ll be able to see haw he feels then.  Hopefully, we should be able to do our dressage test on Sunday after all!
