10 Year Reunion

Friday Henry got a trainer ride and despite being really strong he was good. My trainers long time friend was out and he commented that Henry was a really nice horse :)

Saturday I had a lesson. The round pen was wet and sick so I opted out of lunging. Got on and could tell I had a nice sweet horse under me- NOT. He was sassssssy. I should have known by the way he was acting while I tacked him up.

We flatted- trot, sitting trot, no stirrups, canter.

Moved onto jumping. We all went one at a time so that my trainer could have us do something that was level appropriate... Canter to the right up over the 3 ground polls, down the outside line (4 stride), up the polls again and over the liver pool. We had some moments with that but worked through it... Henry was a pistol and it was frustrating. I felt like I was going to puke at one point but just pushed through.

Then we moved onto polls, outside line in 4, oxer to the liver pool... ended up doing the liver pool lots both ways and the oxer lots both ways.

It wasn't one of my finer rides but we accomplished a lot :)

I also bought Henry a new blanket today.. I am not sure why but out local tack store has it for like $30 cheaper then anything I could find on line- SCORE!

      Reunion was a bust ha! I didn't want to pretend I had missed people or we were friends... said hi to a few friends (most of my hs friend didn't go) and then went out to our fav pizza place and a bar with my best friend and her hubby.. a long over due double date with them!
