Agree to Disagree

Tuesday I had a lesson... it ended up being just me in the lesson but like 3 other lessons going on in the same arena... good times! :)

Hacked around on the flat with my trainer adding in things here and there.

Then we moved onto jumping...


 Warmed up over the vertical back and forth. Then did the X (left lead) to the oxer- he stopped the first time. Trainer said I rode for a stop, I didn't' feel like I did- tried to steer cause he was trying to dodge out left or right and def had my spur in him. Came back around and he jumped it... then we did the vertical to the X to the oxer (off the left lead)... then did more of the oxer and really getting him forward forward forward to it.. then backing him off and adding the extra steps.

It wasn't a bad lesson but I hate that he stopped... Onto a new day I guess.






Cooled out, untacked, groomed, loved on, grained, grazed and took Henry back to his stall.

no pictures please, I am eating...


Wednesday I just turned Henry out and let him enjoy the awesome weather!

My lunch...


Lesson Thursday, lesson Friday and trainer ride Saturday.

  4. ^ i agree, riding is not an easy sport. I crack up when people say 'doesn't the horse do all the work?'. uh yeah totally, you come try ;) Someday in the not so distant future, Henry will be so consistent, you both will forget he was a stopper.

  7. I find my trainer and I often disagree when she tells me things like that. :) Still, I usually don't argue because that's what I hire her to do.

  9. Definitely believe that which you stated. Your favourite reason appeared to be at the web the easiest thing to remember of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as folks consider concerns that
    they just don't recognise about. You controlled to hit the nail upon the highest as well as defined out the entire thing without having side effect , folks could take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thanks
