|Christmas goodies my co worker brought today|
Lets see... Saturday I had a lesson. Henry was good- I didn't lunge cause it was like 30 deg outside and I was to cold/frozen stiff to do it. We hacked, my left hand was no numb it hurt. On our walk break I moved my fingers a lot, open close open close to try and get the feeling in them and make them not hurt. Off to canter, change direction with a lead change... then onto jumping.
I joked with my trainer after the lesson was done that I bet she never thought I would be game to jump so much and go FIRST to everything- she laughed and said she knew it would come and then chuckled at how I was going to freak out next show season when she makes me jump 3 ft classes- AYE!
Anywho we jumped the X back and forth to warm up. Then I went first- X to panel to oxer to X. Then X to panel to oxer to X to panel.. then she had me go up and down the oxer a few times working on clean changes after the jump. I left feeling good - the jumps weren't high but I felt like we were able to do the "technical" things that were being asked- tight turns, long approaches, short approaches, lead changes, straightness...
Walked and cooling him out as others took their turns.
Sunday was just a turn out/clean up day. I got to the barn and put Henry out- he ran around, rolled and acted a fool.
I cleaned his stall, fixed the mats that had all shifted, cleaned his water and refilled it, delivered all of my barn families presents to their tack trunks (no one was there so it was fun to put them in boxes and know that they will have a surprise)...

Then I went to get Henry and put him away... he was finally calm but muddy legs!
|Yuck- thanks Henry|
I let him graze a little and then put him away and headed home.
Hack today, lesson Tuesday, hack Wednesday, lesson Thursday (maybe- I have a work thing and I am not sure I will be able to squeeze it all in), trainer ride Friday, lesson Saturday.
