Falling behind ...

I am a few days behind on blogging.. sorry!

Thursday I rode after work. Henry was good, we rode inside. There were 5 of us and all i have to say is LEFT TO LEFT!!!! Enough said. Anywho we worked on softening and bending in the corners, collected sitting trot (bouncy as all heck!), not getting run into or over (haha) and just overall hacking. Nothing to special but it was good to get out and ride.

Friday night we had our parents party at the daycare that Bay goes to so I didn't have time to ride but I did go up and lunge him. He was really good... 

He knows he's cute
Saturday I partook in the morning lesson as Sean didn't have to work. There were 7 of us total in the lesson so it was fun getting to ride with everyone. Super cold morning so it felt good to get to work and start to warm up. Normal hacking went on and then our "sticky" part was his left lead. He likes to pick up the right one but the left it's his fav. So we had to work through that- thankfully with my trainers assistance. I learned something new too- I had always been taught that to get a lead it's an inside bend and outside leg... well apparently i've been doing it all wrong cause its outside bend and outside leg. Voila- a new tool for my box :)

Anywho.. pics from Tuesday...


  1. Technically its not outside bend and outside leg but since he's learning and you want to unbalance him onto the correct lead that is why Irene asked you to do that. Once he's schooled its outside aids (meaning rein to block the shoulder and leg)

  2. Yeah sorry I should have added- for a green horse whos learning :)


Henry and I love to hear from you guys! Leave us comments!!! :)
