Saturday, Sunday... and the loss of an hour

Saturday aka group lesson day... The Hawley clinic was going on outside so we rode inside.

Groomed and tacked up Henry... 

At one point he had both back feet in the bucket but i wasn't quick enough to get a picture.. such a random horse! He carefully pulled them out of the bucket when we left the cross ties.


Flatted as a group... we started the lesson off with a long 2 point at the walk, sounds pathetic but my legs were burning. Though I am convinced from what I saw that Erica and I were the only two who did it the whole time out of the 5 of us who were out there.





Onto jumping- we did 1 back and forth as a group. Then the group did 1 to 2 to 3.. then I added to the course for myself... 1 to 2 to 3 to 1 to 4 bending line to 3. Henry and I did that twice and he was awesome so my trainer said to end on that.
             
Erica and I went for a short walk and then I groomed and put him away.





Came back up to the barn and cleaned all my tack.





Made sure I picked up all my stuff and headed home to get ready to drive to Clovis with my hubby and daughter for my bff's daughters bday party.

Sunday was Henry's off day and he got turned out to enjoy the awesome weather!


I love the longer days but hate the loss of sleep!

Monday is a trainer ride since they didn't ride him Friday, Tuesday is my lesson, Wednesday is the weekly trainer ride, Thursday is my lesson, Friday is his day off and Saturday idk...

  4. The bucket shot sent straight me to oh no an abscess land. Glad it's just humor. Also jealous of your grass. Have a good week!

  6. We have a bucket at the corner of our wash stall as well but the horses never seem to step into it... It's always full it seems though so maybe that's why...

  8. I wish my trainer made me do more of that stuff in my lessons. She expects me to be doing all of the hard no fun stuff on my own and to be honest, I don't wanna! Lol. Good on you for doing the whole amount.
