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!
Lesson Thursday, lesson Friday and trainer ride Saturday.
