Friday I wanted to ride but ended up being at work longer then I planned so I had about an hour before I was to pick up B so I took Henry to the BIG round arena... he was WILD but I only got video after the race was over lol.
|Floating... aka high horse! :)|
Sunday we went out to breakfast as a family and then I met Mona to ride. The ponies had taken over the indoor arena so we weren't sure where to ride, were told we could ride out side so we tacked up, I lunged and we headed down.
Henry wasn't bad per say but his brain was not there and his head was up. I couldn't get him in a good frame to save my life and he was really pogo'ie... I tired to canter to get him to go forward and relax but if I touched his mouth at all he acted like I was ripping his face off. Drama Llama!!! It was almost like he was so confused about everything in his world shirnking (all the ponies). He wasn't spooking or scared of them but just confused lol!
About 5-10 min into our ride we were kicked out of the outdoor and told we could go inside... lots of walking all around haha!
He was still a bit frazzled in the indoor but settled in finally and I got some great work out of him. Worked on frame and then loooooooose reigns, then back to contact. Soft canter and good departures as well.
Cooled out and walked F O R E V E R with Mona talking.
Gave Henry a quick rinse of his shoulder, legs and saddle area with some vetrolin.
Grained, grazes, filled his water and gave kissed.
I'll be back up there tonight to blanket.. supposed to be 43 tonight.
Hack Monday, lesson Tuesday, off Wednesday, lesson Thursday, trainer ride Friday and hopefully a lesson Sat if I can get a sitter.
5 more weeks till hubby is done with this new job training.. it's been the longest 22 weeks of my life!
