|My new motto for 2013|
Anywho we had a lesson last night. As the above pictures says- I want every ride to count and I want to make the most of every lesson. I want to understand what I am being asked and really know it, I want to be pushed and step up to the challenge and I want to be refined.
Henry was a NUT last night in the cross ties.. it was odd. Then in the round pen he was pogo horse so I let him work his bucks and crazies out and then hopped on. Two days off in a row doesn't bode well for him.
Got to work flatting and he never felt tired but life went on :)
Lysette set up a gymnastic for us last night.
We started with 3 being put to and X and figure 8ing over it as a whole group to warm up. Then E and K did it some more while L and I waited for our next direction.
Then we went through it a bunch, I was told to always turn left after 3 since that is Henry's bad turn way- it was not good but I didn't die lol! At one point I felt like he was going so fast and my trainer referenced my position like a parachute and i laughed and said yeah thats how I feel cause he's flying and I am along for the ride.. she told me to sit up and ride lol :)
Then we were instructed to do 1 go around 2 and then jump 3- so like a loop/curve thing. Once Henry understood what we were doing it went pretty well. I was proud of him!
Off today, lesson tomorrow, trainer ride Friday and lesson Saturday.
I think Andy took pics of video so I am excited to see those!
