Pictures! and our ride...

First I will start with the update, cause one I unveil the pictures I won't have your attention :)

Hacked last night down in the BIG arena. Again I did lots of canter work and transitions. He was better this time then Monday night. Still not where I want him to be or acceptable.

I also did lots of weaving around the jumps. Henry gets up tight when we go around/through/over/under jumps.. ok the last two were just added for the heck of it. But really when I turn and go between standards of two jumps I can feel the tension start. I close my leg and remind him to go forward and that its ok - he does but we need to get to a point where he is schooled and comfortable. It will come with time.

I did 5 min of 2 point in the canter again. Time to step it up as I am feeling comfortable at this amount of time.

I walked around and cooled him out.. then i turned him out for like 20/30 min to eat grass while I cleaned up.

Lesson tonight, hopefully a trainer ride Thursday and Friday and a lesson Saturday.

Now for the pictures from 5/10/12's lesson. Thanks Kat and Andy!




LOVE this :)
