Is it March or May?! (updated with a video)

Loving this warm weather!!!

Wish I lived here!
Monday I was told Henry was a rock start, really really good. Here is a video my trainer sent me.

Tuesday I had a lesson. I got to the barn early and groomed the life out of Henry :) Tacked up, lunged and got on. I had a nice 30 min hack on my own.. then E and L came in and we headed down to the outside arena. We hacked around around again with the group.

Then onto jumping... warmed up over a baby vertical back and forth.

Then I war instructed to do a line. It was 4 jumps, 1 stride between each. Henry was awesome! We went back and forth over it a few times and it felt great.

Then we working on the beloved wedge. He was good, my eye was off and I kept getting long distances.. got a few good spots and then called it a night.

Seriously LOVE my horse! :)

Wednesday - just got a text and was told he was really really good.

Yeah Henry!!!

Thursday lesson, Friday off (and hopefully the chiro will be out) and Saturday lesson. Henry has a hard week this week but last week was light so we are making up some lessons.
