Why oh WHY ...

do I have to work... the weather is amazing and I just want to be outside and bathing my horse!!

I had a lesson this morning...

Worked on lead changes on the flat and then went to jumping.

So my drawing is not to scale... the arena is really big and had other things in there but these were the jumps we used.

1. vertical
2. X
3. oxer
4. vertical
5. wedge box

The line is x one stride oxer two stride vertical.

So we warmed up over 1 and then added in 1 to 4, then 4 to 1.

Then we did the line... I had to remember to whoa over 3 cause Henry gets forward.

Then we moved onto the wedge and really keeping him left over the jump since he like to drop right.

We mixed the wedge and then line back and forth.

He was good, cooled him out, untacked, hosed him off, grained, kissed and put him away.

Trainer ride tomorrow and lesson Saturday.
