First things first- my ride last night.
It was windy windy windy!!!
Kat and I got our ponies (she is leasing Magic now woo hoo!), tacked up, I did a quick lunge but it wasn't helping so I just got on and we went to work.
Shortly after we started riding some other people showed up and we aren't really sure what they were doing with their horses but it was a lot of noise and perplexed both of us.
Went back to hacking. Henry was really good despite all the wind and chaos... he scooted a few times down by the open end and where all the wierd noise was but i just ignored it and pushed him forward and he was awesome.
I did a lot of cantering- all the way around the arena, random circles big and small and in not the normal halves... when he listens and is collected while cantering he is so nice to ride- I mean he is nice to ride all the time but he feels SO fancy when he is all put together! He even behaved when there were some wild horses in the round pen.
The wild horses mentioned above came in the arena right as I started working cantering with a long loose rein... I thought for a min that I should gather up my reins but decided to give Henry the benefit and see how how acted. He was awesome!! One lady even chased her horse around the arena and repeatedly wacked it with the lead rope (I guess it was acting bad but I wasn't really paying attention) and Henry took it all in stride- GO HENRY!
Cooled out, untacked and groomed, grained and put him away.
Tuesday maybe a hack (trainer moves lesson), Wednesday lesson, Thursday lesson, Friday off, Saturday lesson.
I will do a separate post for the contest :)
