Happy Love Day!

Had a lesson today- Woot! First of the week!

I lunged Henry before I got on but actually I didn't have to do any work, he was NUTS so I stood there while he got his craziness out.

Thought we were riding below but my trainer said to come inside since it was windier then heck outside and she was organizing her lesson binder.

We went through our paces on the flat..

Then onto jumping... thanks to my trainer we got to jump the lattice of death ;) Henry's fav haha!

We did that back and forth a bunch working on short approaches, straight over the jump and lead changes- I think we only missed like 2 or 3 the whole lesson so that is AWESOME! Eventually she made it a bigger vertical and he jumped well... we had one stop when she put the top poll on- stinken horse!

He was tired, I was tired and we walked forever. I hosed him off, loves on him, cleaned everything and put him away.

Our bits of the moment lol! Yes we rotate through all three :)
Trainer ride tomorrow, lesson Saturday.

    1. Yeah sans the one stop... though it wasn't his normal dirty stop- it was a short turn and I don't think he could see/figure out what we were doing, oh and the blue and white poll plus the lattice is deadly lol

    2. Haha that makes more sense. You keep all of them on one hook!? How do you get them to all stay on?

  7. Happy belated V-Day! Jealous you have a bridle for each bit. I don't rotate as much as I'd like mostly because I only have one bridle... need to pick up a schooling one.
