It has been a while since my last entry. The winter has passed and the spring is finally here. For the first time, since Dinio came to me, I have been able to train him during the hole winter. An indoor arena is an fantastic asset, especially up here in Sweden. My object from our last clinic was to work him in a long low form and to create more ralaxation. This work has turned off. He has developed his muscles and feels stronger than ever. 

During december we went to see a specialist in Gastro for a consultation regarding his stomach problems. We did an gastroexcam and the outcome of that - no ulcers. Was recommended to give him Pronutrin which often helps horses with gastro problems. And I must say - it has helped. I am also giving him a spoon of Relax Me from Horse First. A supplement that calmes the stomach area. Dinio has also got a ThermoBar installed. It will keep the water temperature around 25--28 degrees C.

April 14th Dinio turned 15 years old. Took a video 6 days later when he stayed in his paddock. He gave me a show - telling me that he just loves the sunshine and the warm weather, it was around 20 degrees C this day. Take 4 minutes and enjoy this video - Dinio celebrating life.

Our work will of course continue this spring. Our competitonsplan is to compete during this summer, outdoor competitions and to continue the competitions during this autumn.

Dinio improves day by day, week by week. This summer so much has happened with him. He has really developed. I'm still not satisfied with his muscle mass and his strength. He need to gain more in weight and also in strength. But we are getting there. Now and then he have had some muscle ace and tomorrow a professional will come and give him massage. Sure, I massage and stretch him on a daily basis but my skills on this matter is not so good. Hope she can help Dinio and give me some instructions of "how to do" and what Dinio needs.

In the work Dinio has finally found himself and me. We are more and more becoming a unit. He is more relaxed, more soft and a real good listener. And he enjoys his work. All this makes it more easy to get through to him and to develop him. Our last two clinics with Gunilla was the best ever. Sooo pleased.

We have finally got our arena fully fenced. This resulted in an opportunity for my darlig mother to ride Dinio again. It was quit a long time ago she rode him. And she did really well. She rode for a while on the arena and then I joined them for a walk around the Täljö area. Well done Mum!

My niece Jennifer also got the opportunity to ride him. I must say that she did extremely well and enjoyed every minute of it. A future dressage star?

Adding a video from our clinic two weeks ago.

Well, hello again! I havn't been writing for a while, so here comes a summary of the resent weeks.

I am still treating Dinio for his stomach problems and he is getting better and better. Feels very fine in the work and we are making progress. The autumn is upon us with dark evenings and chilly nights, but no snow so far. Dinio is wearing thick rugs and spends about 7 hours per day in his padock. During the week I work him on our outdoor arena and during the weekends we ride in the nature. Dinio enjoys every minute there.

Last thursday (October 13) we went to Ågesta for our fifth session. Dinio did very well indeed. I am so proud of him. My darling mother joined me and she also took the opportunity to take a video of our session. He is now more straight and the bendings are now starting to work very well. See video on:

First the video. I filmed it on the morning August the 13, the first day home after Ultuna. I named it "A happy Dinio" because that really shows. He is so happy to be home and to be able to spend time in the paddock again. Enjoy!

And finally we are "back in business" again. The gastric medicine "GastroGard" has helped him a lot, he is really well in his stomach now and he seems to be very healthy. Unfortunately he got an oedemea under his belly (due to the deworming). During the first week it developed to 70 cm X 40 cm X 3 cm. Due to that I could only work him on the long rain. But now - after 3 weeks - it has decreased in size a lot. Our first ride together was last Monday. We are walking in the forrest and around the Täljö area and our first easy dressage session last night went very well. So now I hope Dinio and I will have a pleasant autumn with a lot of training and no sicknessess.

Today the special box I ordered for a few weeks ago, arrived and I went to the shop and bought it. During this evening I have studied all the material, installed the program on my mothers computer and then started to upload. This time I took the video from April this year. The video shows small cuts from the clinic for Frida on Stava Gård in Åkersberga. Very pleased I could also see that this time the video is uploaded in the correct format. After 3,5 months in Sweden I think Dinio is doing fantastic.

What a horse!
