Ah I love Saturdays

Hubby is home
No work
I get to ride
Normally some down time

Yeah Saturdays are good.

It was absolutely freeeeeeezing at the barn. I don't think I ever actually got warm warm while riding ha!

Got Henry, tacked up and got on. Walked a few laps and then started in. For some reason I was pinching with my right knee today and have a nasty rub on it and it hurts, bad!

We hacked around- lots of posting, sitting, 2 point, change or direction, cantering and I even did some no stirrup on my own.

Then we moved onto jumping....


Warmed up over 1 as a whole group.

Then moved onto 1, right lead to 2, left lead to 3. Then I did 1 to 2 to 3 at a bit of an angle to the left and back to 2 and then 3.

The first round it was rough and after that he was pretty good.. he was forward- to forward but it never makes me worry, i just have to get him to come back better.

Watched the Hawley clinic a little and was so cold I couldn't stay more then once session. Nicku and Pongo did awesome!!!

Day 2 of the clinic tomorrow and I will probably go turn Henry out and watch :)

    1. I know us CA are big babies but I swear it was like in the low 30's with the wind... my phone said it was 44 but i can vouch it wasn't that warm! You would think i would have been warm- I had on a tank, long sleeve, sweatshirt and snow jacket but nope I was shivering!
