Sunday Henry got turned out...
Monday... hacked tonight. But let me back up- Henry had a chiropractor appointment today. I called the Dr and he was in my area so he came out today. He gave me lots of kudos for how good H looked... said he was muscled really well and chiropractically he didn't need a lot of work. Our goal now is to soften him up... Henry is heavy heavy heavy! Especially to the left and he was able to work out a nice loud POP in his left shoulder/neck.
On to the hack...
Kat and I rode together which was nice to have a buddy.
Since Henry had the chiropractor out earlier, I didn't want to be to hard on him but also wanted to make sure we got a good solid workout. I started out just trotting around- he was looking at everything and the 25 million pigeons that were all fighting for a spot on the railing in the roof were not helping our cause.
Anywho we moved onto some haunches in down the long side and then a normal bed through the corners and on the short side. Then did shoulder in... did this both directions.
Walked some then cantered. Did a bunch of collected canter and then went to long low relaxed canter... I wanted him to really stretch out and relax. I don't know if it's just in my head but I felt like his canter felt better :)
Hack tonight, GM clinic tomorrow to audit, lesson Thursday, trainer ride (maybe) Friday and lesson Saturday.
