Lesson Was Cancled...

So I hacked hacked hacked :)

Henry was better, not fab but better.

Today's goals were really working on transitions and frame.



I ran him around in the round pen before I got on and then rode around outside for a bit and then headed inside to work work. He was still up but oh well I worked with what I was dealt :)

Frame into every gate, quick and good transitions were a must. LOTS of backing up... Henry needs lots of backing up lol!

I ended with just letting him canter on a lose rein to blow some steam off.

I rode for an hour and a half... that is a LONG hack for me but it was great!

Then we took a walk around the property to cool off.



I then un-tacked him and gave him a vetrolin bath... put his cooler on and walked him back to his stall with some stops to eat the delish green grass :)






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

My grandma will be in town Saturday and I am so excited for her to see me ride! She is the #1 reason why I was able to ride :) Henry PLEASE be good and show your best side ;)
