Today was supposed to be a light hack/relaxing ride. Apparently you had other plans.
Someone was lunging in the lower round arena and that created a glimmer in your eye :)
We worked around through the whole arena, things were going well- shoulder in, haunches in, bending, low headset, frame, forward, collected, canter in half the arena and around the jumps (making sure you were listening to me and my leg)... then I asked you to go straight down the WHOLE long side. Half way down (or up) it you were SURE that I was going to turn you and ask for a lead change... nope I just wanted you to go straight.
Outside leg means move off of it, not lean into it and go faster.
It took you some time to figure it out, boy were you sweaty and foaming.
Thank goodness I had my ipod cause the music kept me relativly calm- a few "really Henry!?!?!" 's came out but other then that we worked through it.
FINALLY you went straight and we quit.
Here's to tomorrow being an easy hack?! ;) Probably not ha!
I love you!
Hack tomorrow, lesson Tuesday, something (not sure what) Wednesday, lesson Thursday, trainer ride Friday and lesson Saturday.
