I went out to ride and found my poor boy with about 4 big bites- where his bootie and back meet. It wasn't under the saddle so I still rode him.
Tacked up, lunged and got on. He was not so much fun to ride... super lookie so after a lap of trotting we went to canter work. I cantered around the in my 2 point for a while and then back to sitting, working on lengthening and shortening his stride.
Worked on circles around the jumps and him being balanced in the circles... through this we encountered a few freak outs at the stone panel in the arena. One side says our barn name and the other side is painted like a stone wall- apparently it was going to eat us alive.
Lots of canter work and "fights" equals a tired Karley...
Cooled him out, untacked, hosed off, cleaned Henry, fly sheet and mask on, cleaned tack, grained, cleaned his stall and put him away.
On a side note... hubby and I found glass in Henry's stall. I've told my trainer and will be talking to the BO today- needless to say I am NOT happy. I've found trash, paper towels, plastic, staples and now glass in the shavings.
