|Bahahaha so true :)|
Onto my ride... Tuesday lesson :)
I was running late at my hubbys dad (who watches B on Tuesday nights) was sick so I had to find a sitter.. she couldn't get to my house till 5:15 cause she worked till 5. BUT I made it out, quick groom and threw on the tack... hopped on, walked a lap or two and got to work.
Henry was a bit bright eyes but after some good work, settled in.
Nothing fancy about the flat- worked on keeping him in the frame, forward trot to get him really working, riding into the "scary" end and telling him to knock it off when he thinking about looking :), bending through the corners, stopping and backing to make him lighter, straight down the long side... yeah you get the picture!
Onto jumping... This was the set up :)
We warmed up over 1 back and forth. Then we did 1 to 2 both directions. Then we did 2 to 1 with a roll back to 3. We finished with 3 roll back (around 2) to 1 and then to 2.
Henry was good... a few looks at 3 but no stopping and I rode him well (i felt like). It was like he was trained no so green when I jumped him lol!
I feel like I am struggling with my release... Over the small fences my trainer said that I am doing ok but when they get bigger I need to remember to put my hands forward more. Random thought I know but I wanted to document this haha!
Off today, lesson tomorrow, trainer ride Friday and hopefully a lesson Saturday.
