Grabbed Henry and tacked up... hopped on and then got to warming up. My trainer was supposed to have a beginner lesson so I was going to flat while she taught it and then she was going to do me over fences... the lesson was late so I got a flat and OF lesson.
Ran through my paces on the flat as the eventing trainer was jumping her horse over some GIANT jumps. My trainer was helping her and randomly would call out things to me ha! It was all good though.
Then it was my turn. We warmed up over a panel, then my trainer made is a little bigger vertical with a ground poll on each side. Basically I was doing a figure 8 with a jump in the middle. Also it was going the short way of the arena, not the long way so it was a tight turn. I had to really sit up, steer and plan ahead... who knew those things could be so hard! :) Oh yeah and perfect lead changes in there too.
Henry was great when I rode him well... he even got praise from my trainer.

Cooled out Henry as the little girl took her lesson... I helped by showing her how to post at the walk and two point :) lol
Herny gets tomorrow off, hack Friday and lesson Saturday.
If I can get the money together our first show will be in Feb :) Bring on the show season!
