Thanks Kat for the videos!
|Yep feel like this today...|
Today's (Saturday's) lesson...
I got to Henry's stall and he was laying down... I tried to get him up and he wouldn't get up. Then I noticed that there were lots of "thrash" marks on the one wall of his stall as well as white paint from the walls all over the left side of him blanket. Called my trainer, she came down, his gums looked ok and eventually he got up and seemed ok. Had gut sounds so I tacked up and got on. He was his normal self THANK THE LORD!
Nicku has these anti-cast safety strips that I plan to get asap.
Onto the lesson... tacked up and hopped on.
We hacked around- there were 6 of us in the lesson today. Henry was pretty good on the flat. I got told to keep him in a frame more but he was NOT cooperating much so I just kept at it and continued to ask lol.
X (going left to right) to the outside oxer to the oxer on the diagonal to the X.
Then we did the X to the outside oxer to the diagonal oxer to the X slight right to the poll roll back to the X to the diagonal oxer right to the outside oxer.
Henry was great, lead changes were there and my trainer said to end on that. Good boy Henry!
Cleaned and put up Henry's new stall name "thing" while he ate his grain and hungout in the cooler.
|Said hi to Pongo and ate some grass on the way back to his stall|
|nom nom nom|
Put him away, filled his water, dropped his extra hay (I changed his food today so he now gets 4 flakes of Alfalfa from the barn (1 bfast, 1 lunch, 2 dinner) and 1 flake of Grass from me), gave kisses and told him to be good.
Turn out tomorrow if the weather behaves!
