Weekend Catch up

Friday we went to a friends graduation and I couldn't bring myself to make dinner, let alone ride so Henry got the day off... he has two hard lessons Thursday (am with trainer and pm with me) so I didn't feel bad giving him the time off.

Saturday I had a lesson. He was good. A little fresh at the beginning so we cantered a bit in 2 point to tire him out some. Since we were in the big lower arena a few times around and we were ready to ride. I felt like this was one of the most physically demanding lessons I have had.. maybe I was still tried from the way to long day on Friday but I worked hard- or so I felt. We even did no stirrup work, yeah I need to practice more of that, Henry has the WORST trot. We also jumped AND got some nice lead changes. He was jumping left on Saturday, go figure! Again I was exhausted so at the end of the jumping my lead changes fell apart and I got in trouble but my legs were like JELLO and like I said I got some really good changes up until the end. And there were only two that didn't go well so I am not complaining :)

Today Henry got turned out, I cleaned my tack and loved on him.

This week I have a crazy big project/deployment at work so I am not sure how much riding I will get done but this is my plan...
Monday hack, Tuesday trainer ride, Wednesday off, Thursday Trainer ride/lesson, Friday hack, Saturday trainer ride.

I was looking back on the year that I have had Henry.. WOW I am so impressed with where he has come :) Some of my fav pics
