Lyn and I had our dressage lessons again this afternoon. She again rode first, Archie and I rode second. In the rain! He's toughening up though. I've already said once before that we cannot afford to be pansies about the weather. I think he's working well, and I thought Lyn and Boz went beautifully. I still hate my position on the horse, but it can only get better. As I tell myself, I've actually only been riding for 3 weeks now. So I guess it's not all that bad. What's important is that we are improving! It's making me deliriously happy, all this time on top of a horse.
Tomorrow is the Australian Cup. I've got good memories, and not so good memories, from this meeting at Flemington. Racing, and life, can be like that!
