Just one more update before Smith's Lawn Monday.

Tried my new Myler combo with port and seemed to do the trick he respected it a lot more and I seemed to have some control into the fences, just have to be careful not to use it to harshly.

Schooled him today and he went well, bit strong but much better in his mouth since having his teeth done and much softer in the halt so hopefully we will get a better dressage mark.

Be lovely to go double clear but who knows aswell but then I spose that is what everybody wants!! Cleaning tack tomorrow and boots etc, hopefully it will be nice and I can sit in the garden and do that!! Then all set for Monday, times are up and I think I will have to get up at 5am!! Nice! But I have Tuesday off of work as well to relax so not to bad!

Well going to read through my test now so I will report on Tuesday, good luck to anybody else going
