A PONY! Ha just kidding, but I can dream right?!
I sent my family the following things :)
Girth to match my bridle
Friday, Saturday, Sunday...
Friday my trainer said Henry was really good- yay!
Saturday we had a lesson and there were 8 peeps in the lesson... I don't mind riding with a crowd but a crowd with such varied skill level is hard.
Henry was good- a bit fresh but I didn't lunge so what so I expect?!
We hacked around- even some no stirrup work- KILLER... this horse is bouncy and until you try to ride him you have NO IDEA what it is like ;)
Moved onto jumping... Jump the little panel, a long straight ride to the rail and then a tight roll back ish turn and then a long approach to another panel, quick left turn to the X and then a nice approach to the first panel again. Did this a couple times and then we were done. He was better... Henry tends to get fast and heavier throughout a course so it was nice to be able to accomplish a whole go without falling apart.
Today he got turned out and was a ball of mud after...
Hack Monday, lesson Tuesday, off Wednesday, lesson Thursday, trainer ride Friday and hopefully a lesson Saturday.
