The Good and The Bad and The Ugly

The blanket arrived!


Friday- Trainer ride. He was good.. they even jumped this BIG wedge. 

Saturday was a crazy day- Lesson and tending to all the Henry chores in the morning, rush home to take a shower and get ready for a baby shower, go to the baby shower which lasted 3 hours (well went longer but I left after 3 hours), dinner with friends and then I got sick...

So back to the lesson... as I was on my way to get Henry I watched two horses kinda not getting along and then one of them kick the crap out of the fence, kinda getting stuck and then getting free and taking the whole fence down- I started running to help but then noticed that one of the guys was running too and he said he didn't need help... I made sure he was really ok and then continued on to get Henry.

Got Henry, groomed, lunged and headed down to the big arena. There were 7 of us so a decent size lesson. Henry felt a little funny- we think his back in a little sore from jumping so much Friday.

We went through the paces... and jumped the same course that I jumped Thursday but the jumps weren't as high- which is ok since he was a little back sore.

Cooled him out and went for a walk up to our old barn with Erica.. there was a loose dog up there so we didn't venture far past the barn.

Waited my turn in line to give him a bath- everyone had the same idea that I did lol.

Let Henry graze while I cleaned his stall and filled his water
All clean! Proud of this tail :)

Dumped over his grain... why Henry?!

Hoarding!

Saturday night I got sick, Sunday I didn't get out of bed all day and today (Monday) B is sick so we are home together.

Going to try and lunge just let Henry stretch his legs today, lesson tomorrow, off/turn out Wednesday, lesson Thursday, trainer ride Friday and maybe a lesson Saturday.
