|Henry and his FAV neighbor Buda... and apparently he moves his water bucket into his stall.|
Tacked up, thought I would do a quick lunge and he was WILD - I stood there while he ran around like a crazy, untamed, screaming (to who know who) horse!
Hacked around, my trainer was riding her horse and J was riding her horse Louie so it was a nice little crowd of us :)
Onto jumping... I set up 3 jumps- 1 stride between each. We started with figure 8ing the last jump and lead changes. Then we moved onto figure 8ing the middle jump- again leads and balance. Then I did all three. Apparently I set the distance between 1 and 2 a little long so I really had to get Henry forward and then back to normal between 2 and 3. He was very well behaved!
We did some more tricky "handy" riding and it was fun!
Cooled him out as he was LATHERED and I was roasting (even though it was 45 deg outside). A slight rinse of the saddle area and then I finished pulling his mane as he sat in a cooler to dry off.
|Back to grazing ...|
Cleaned up my mess, grained and loved on him!
Trainer ride tomorrow, lesson Saturday along with watching to Hawley clinic :)
