I ‘ave le feeling Uzzeur Muzzeur is starting ‘er preparations for our entrance onto le Prix St-Georges Dressage circuit.
Ah decide ah will surprise ‘er and get some practice in with le ‘elp of L’Uncle.

When ‘e yell OI again ah gallop in.
‘At Boi Halt – immobility,’ ‘e say.
Ah throw mahself on le ground and ah give ‘im immobility at Boi.

Eet feel good to me so ah continue in full collection.
‘Shoulder in left’ ‘e shout.
Ah ‘eave mahself up and give Muzzeur le shoulder in.
Of course, ah keep mah nose out. Ah am not stupeed.

‘Half pass left’ yell L’Uncle
Ah take le ‘alf pass very seriously.
