I didn't think the antics from Sunday were going to affect me but I guess subconsciously they did..
Tacked up and lunged- he was dead despite me trying to get him run around. Got on and headed down and of course he lit up when I got into the big arena. He was looking and spooking at who knows what- seriously there was nothing there sometimes. One time he slammed on the brakes and then went backwards a bunch- ummm Henry there is nothing there! Stressed me out!
Trainer told me to go gallop him and then do some half halts and stops to make sure I had his brain- I was SO not stoked about this. I defiantly didn't let him fully gallop, not going to lie.
Once we jumped his brain was back in working order... Praise the Lord!
Warmed up over 1 to 2.. then did a course 1 to 2 (in 5), right turn to 3, left turn to 4. Did this a couple times and he was good.
Then we did 4 on a figure 8, left turn then right turn then left turn and right.. you get it.
Cooled out, untacked, cleaned up, grained, kissed and put away.
Off today, lesson tomorrow, lunge Friday and lesson Saturday.
