I had a good hack last night... Just flatted and I planned to work on some counter canter. My trainer was there which was good since I wanted her help with the counter canter (if needed).
I also was inspired my by buddy GM to do some no stirrup work :) If he can do 20 min of it, I CAN do some. Not 20 min but I will get there... I think MAYBE I did 10 min with one small walk break but I have to start somewhere right?!
Anywho I didn't lunge cause someone had turned her horses out in the round pen... keep in mind these horses LIVE IN PASTURE and the owner NEVER RIDES! Seriously people, some of us actually ride our horses and have horses that live in a stall- there is NO NEED for your horses who live in pasture to be turned out in a round pen.
Got on and went to work, Henry was a doll! Hacked around. No stirrups. Counter canter... he was AWESOME to the left (right lead) and a little sticky to the right (left lead) but we will get there. I think he has only counter cantered like 3 or 4 times so I am proud!
Cooled out, pulled more mane, cleaned up, grained and put him away.

Lesson tonight, maybe a hack Wednesday, lesson Thursday, trainer ride Friday, lesson (maybe if it doesn't rain, if it rains the clinic get the indoor) Saturday.
