Didn't take a lunch yesterday as I was busy at a customer site so I left work at 4:15. Headed home and said hi to the hubby and baby girl, changed and headed to the barn. There was one person riding when I got there but she was done before I was done tacking and lunging.
So I had the WHOLE arena to myself! :) This was good for Henry cause he prefers to ride with other horses. A lone arena = a lookie/spookie horse. Good stuff work us/me to work on.
My goal for this hack was to get my 2 point in and work on our canter transitions. At the show and in general Henry likes to kinda flick his head when we canter. It's not pretty ha! So I did lots of canter transitions and once I got a couple good ones each way I cantered around in the 2 point letting Henry relax and felt the burn in my legs. I did 5 min consecutive 2 point cantering.
Henry was sweaty and I was tired at the end of our ride but it was a good one. Good boy Henry! :)
Hack tonight, trainer ride Wednesday, lesson Thursday, trainer ride Friday and lesson Saturday.
