Work, work and then some more work. Everyone is now back from their vacations so now it is business as usual. During this week Dinio got his hoofs attended by our ferrier. The crack in his right front hoof has begun to heel. Now he has ring shoes in front with Equi pack. Works very well indeed. Regarding his training I decided to give him an easy week with a lot of walks around Täljö and some soft work on the outdoor arena. Today my darling mum rode him. It went very well and mum was soooo happy. Adding a photo from today - Dinio in the stable - enjoying his afternoon brush.

The week's are passing by. It is soon autumn, but still very warm and sunshine nearly every day. The last day's we have had very warm weather, with about 25 degrees C in the evenings.

During week 32 we attended a clinic för Gunilla - went very well indeed. So nice! Went home with a smile on my lips. Nice feeling! Varied the work with long walks around Täljö. Also fetched new hay this week. Green, smelles good and Dinio enjoyed it very much.

During week 33 we took two clinics for Gunilla, one at home and one at Stava stable. At Stava we trained on the program for the competition. Went very well. Not perfect of course but very good for riding a program for the first time. Nice to ride in an indoor arena with the correct messure 20 x 60 m. We are, of course, going to practice on the program several times. Dinio and I got a bit tensed, very natural, when you have to ride from point to point and the movement shall be performed by the letters, not when it feels right to do them. One major thing remains and it is catching the canter from the walk. When tensed it may result in the spanish walk instead. Need to get through to him in those situations and above all - work on relaxation. 

Gunilla has lent me a Sprenger bridle, which works very well on Dinio. Very calm in his mouth when riding on this bridle.

Yesterday Dinio got a resting day, gave him some massage and a good brush. Looked him through veru thorougly. He just loves it.

Yesterday evening I thought a lot of wether to start or not and decided today to wait a bit longer with the competitions. We need to spend more time on relaxation and the respons of my signals.

The life with Dinio is a roler coster. Week 31 started off very well. First a massage by a professional which showed that Dinio had some small problems with his muscles. I now know how to continue his massage after our sessions and how to stretch him accordingly. During our Tuesday session he felt a bit off so I decided to take him on a stroll around Täljö instead. Wednesday a new clinic with Gunilla where he just felt great. One movement that felt wonderful was the extended canter. This wonderful feeling stayed on during our Thursday session. And then Friday arrived with a change in the weather. A bit colder and some rain. In the early evening Dinio got a cholic attack which I couldn't solve. After 1 hour I rang the emergency vet who arrived 40 minutes later. By then Dinio was well but we decided to give him the treatment anyway. Poor Dinio!! Checked on him during the night and he was well.

On Saturday I bought ProEquo, a treatment for horses with stomach problems, which now will be administrated for about 20 day's. Dinio felt well and I took him for a long walk around Täljö. Nice! Yesterday a new session and he felt wonderful.

Yes, life with Dinio is a roler coster
