They have opened up both ends of the indoor arena. One end is always open and other has a sliding door... it's open :) Henry didn't seem to mind it which was nice, I rode as if it was always like that.
Not a person was at the barn when I arrived, thankfully Kat was on her way.
We tacked up, I went to lunge but the round pen was SO HARD so I didn't do much, hopped on and got to work.
Henry was actually pretty lazy.
Hacked around and worked on staying in the frame, bending nicely around my leg and keeping a constant pace- he wants to speed up down the long sides at the canter.
I also worked on some no stirrup work at the sitting trot, posting and canter. I also worked on picking up my stirrups when cantering without them... the slightest touch of my leg- Henry takes that as a go fast now, ugh!
I will continue to work on that and no stirrups because I need to get stronger and I have to start somewhere.
He was really hot and sweaty as I did a lot of work so Kat and I cooled out and walked for a bit.
Cleaned up, hosed off, grained and put the boys away..
Lesson tonight, off tomorrow, lesson Thursday.. idk Fri and Sat.
