Hello Beautiful Weather!

Oh man it was SO nice out yesterday!

30's at night and 60's/70's during the day... all I want to so is leave work and go ride and bath my horse!

The lesson was canceled due to it being my trainers birthday (also GM's bday) and so I planned to hack...

Got to the barn, grabbed my fancy horse, groomed, tacked up, lunged and headed down to the big outdoor arena. My shoer was playing carpenter and fixing a jump he broke and his wife was taking a lesson.






I hacked around and Henry was pretty good. I rode in the Segunda and he wasn't as soft but nothing horrible. There was like a dressage court set up in one corner of the arena with polls so that was good for him to have to trot and canter over/around and not stress. I love just going around that whole arena, it is huge and I love it!

I worked on lots of two point and I haven't really worked on that much since the challenge that was done with Sprinklerbandit.




Cooled him out, untacked, groomed and put him away with some grazing while I filled his water... oh and grain. yeah he is so spoiled!




Eating his grain with Louie creeping in lol

Off today, lesson Thursday, trainer ride Friday and lesson Saturday.

  5. Sounds like a great way to spend time with your horse - another one jealous of your weather...although temps are picking back up here. We might even reach double figures next week - the excitement is unreal! :D

  6. Glad you had some lovely weather and a good ride! The past two days have been pretty nice here (nice in February in NS = above zero), but still lots of snow and ice. The ring is still a skating rink... can't wait for spring!

  7. I loooooooove big open rings. Yours looks huge! For hunter princess me, cantering in a big open ring is often the best substitute for galloping in a big open field :)
