Structured Chaos?!

There was a clinic going on at the barn this morning... so we rode inside. Shortly before our lesson, I peaked at the indoor arena and there were tons of people warming up for the clinic- luckily it cleared out and we took it over.

I did a quick lunge as my trainer advised it since it was chilly and foggy outside.

Got on and we got to work. He was working really well for most of the lesson. We had moments of resistance of a frame, he also felt really willing to go forward forward forward with me but luckily I was able to direct his energy accordingly. I LOVE that I am not worried or phased by these things anymore.

My trainer had us do a follow the leader type game and it was interesting... to say the least.

We went for a walk after our lesson to cool out, I untacked, curried, put on a cooler, cleaned, took him to his stall, grained and loved on him.

Cute boy!

Kisses for Henry :)
I went and watched the clinic for a while with Lyssette and then headed home.

We also went to the pumpkin patch tonight as a family...


  1. Sounds like you had a awesome ride.
    Love all the photos.

  2. Its nice that your able to have clinics on your farm, but also to be separated from them to do your own thing. Hope that made some sense. Love all the pictures!

    1. Luckily the weather working in our favor.. if there was rain it would have been a mad house inside and no riding out have been done hahaha!

  3. Agree with Shelley - would love to board where clinics are held...get the benefit of auditing and/or participating. Love the pumpkin patch pics!

    1. Thanks!

      Yeah it's interesting to watch clinics of other disciplines!


Henry and I love to hear from you guys! Leave us comments!!! :)
