31st March, 2009 Day 2

Both Rosie and Fern were long reined today. Rosie has done it before and knows what it is all about so she went over and round and through some of the obstacles. Fern hasn't been long reined and has been a little more wary of ropes since an incident when she was a foal. However, with all the preparatory exercises, she was absolutely fine and soon got the hang of it. We started off with dual controls, me at the back with the long reins and Ruth leading her. When she is worried she tends to stop rather than to leave so that does make life safer.
