There are some local schooling shows that I will set my sights on, that way if something happens that doesn't affect me/my horse I can still go :)
|Yep yep SO true :)|
Had a lesson today- there were like seriously 6 other people hacking kinda lessoning while I had my lesson. It's either lots of people or no people during my Thur am lesson.
So it was SUPER windy outside and all the horses were a bit up... Trainer had me stay in the left side of the arena and figure 8 over the poll (#4) being one side of the 8 and the open rail (far left of the picture) the other side. This wasn't hard but the random people who couldn't steer made it interesting and Henry's spooks made it interesting too lol.
Then we circled over the 4 poll and worked on lead changes.
Finally we moved onto jumping... Trainer had set up the horse eating latices- woo hoo! lol So we started with the latice/with a poll on top vertical- jump 1... back and forth. Them moved onto 1 to 2- he jumped the oxer so big and flat the first time, it was so weird feeling and apparently entertaining for all who were watching. Then we did 2 to 1... did both of those a bit. Then we did 1 with a short turn left or right- depending on which way i jumped it- and rolled around cantering over the poll on that side, 3 or 4, then halted.
It was a good ride, I was and am exhausted- dang that time of the month, it seriously takes all my energy away!
Trainer ride tomorrow and lesson Saturday.
