whose turn to buy the sweets

Well it was Lydia's turn last night! In the UK we bought cake if we tumbled, here it's sweets and last night Lydia took Haribo as she had been 'flung' by Darcos the week before; no lasting damage.
Yesterday the boys both worked in-hand and on the lunge, good work from both. I need to work Chapsi a little harder now, in our ridden sessions he's quite tired by the end of the trot work so perhaps a more serious lunge programme will now be in order if we ever going to ride the canter in the school and not just on the track. He really has a lovely balanced canter (so different to Moo) it's lacking a little 'jump' but it's a great canter to start from.
Moo is almost there (as in like a baby 'there') on the lunge, lots of canter trans and rein back/giravolta in between, he is still mega on the forehand in the canter but at least he can now maintain it; I'm so looking forward to being able to work 'within' the canter as I'm sure that will help.
Off to Limoges later to buy some winter gear for the pone and Lydia and I...the debit card is already trembling.

In Germany it was a round of schnapps and when I was (falling off) in France it was a bottle of bubbly.

Di said...

Oh yes, bubbly, what a good idea, it's my turn for that I think!

i think in Australia it's a bottle of whisky. Sweets are much more sensible! Glad she's ok :)

You must be very pleased with both your boys' progress!

LOL Thats so funny if people fall off they buy things? Hahah I think here whoever falls off the most buys beer for everyone. Then again whoever falls off most is usually gonna need the most beer.
