I got to the barn early today,because I thought my first lesson was at 12, but it was 1pm so it gave me time to work Dare. For the first 30 minutes he was a kamakazi pilot. I kept my cool and just kept sending him to fetch the ducks to me. He would overflank and then his lift was pushy so they split a lot. Finally he settled down(got tired?) and he stopped overflanking and stopped pushing. It was poetry in motion if only he could do that all the time, but I am going to try and not be so reactive when he does stupid stuff because I know that increases his anxiety and he gets nutty. He has all the talent and he has most of the training but we need to come together as a team and that hasn't happened yet. I'm glad I have someplace to work this year, because I am planning another road trip in April to Alabama and then to Indiana. Whoo whooo here we go again..
There is another freaking snowstorm predicted and it looks fairly heavy. I have to go to Maine tomorrow and I would normally leave in the am but it looks like it will be heaviest then so I will go in the afternoon and get there late. I'm not keen about driving in the snow but it should be light by the time I leave.
