Today we attended our first clinic for Kristian. We started a bit early but better to be in time than late. We arrived at 10.30 and our lesson should start at 12.00 So first he had to stay in the trailer for a while. Gave him hay and he looked quit content with that. Offered him some water and he drank a little. After about 15 minutes he started to worry so my darling mother and I decided to bring him out. He is so fantastic my darling Dinio. He is so well behaved. Walked with him a bit at the indoor arena and about 11.30 I saddled him up and started the warm up. At 12.15 my lesson started and I went to the outdoor arena. First Kristian just wanted to watch  - so I trotted and did some half passes along the long sides and on the diagonals  and everything worked nicely. A bit tensed but still OK. Then we started. We have som problems with the transitions between the walk and the trot - often results in the spanish walk. I had e-mailed Kristian about our problems earlier so he would be prepared. And I got help!! The goal now is to learn him to follow the inner rain and the outside leg aid. Learn him to go forward for a quick leg aid. Leave the inner leg aid and not so much aids from the seat. Dinio is a quick learner and did really well. In the walk, the trot and the canter. And it feels so nice to have something to hold on too in our daily training at home. Thank You Kristian!!

The trip home was hard due to heavy traffic, but we arrived at the stable around 15.15 Offloaded Dinio and he looked really taken but shined up when he saw that he was home again. Installed him in his box and served him hay and fresch water. YAMMIE! Then we arranged all our stuff and parked the trailer. Gave Dinio a good shower and some more hay. He was so hungry and so happy to be home. Tomorrow Dinio will have a day off and spend the hole day outside in his lovely paddock which he loves dearly. Oh - one thing more - it is quit warm now - today we had around 20 degrees. Lovely.
