Yep I would like to have all my rides like this!

Thursday and Friday's lessons were very similar ... just Friday I rode better then Thursday :) Both were great lessons, hard work but I felt SO good after them.

Started out with a high high horse on Thursday so Friday I made sure to really really really tire him out.

So both lessons went a little something like this...

Hacking around, working through the issues of the horse eating benches and plastic chairs... then onto some lead changes... then jumping-

1. an X
2. Vertical
3. Oxer
4. Wall
5. Wall (kinda)
6. Box

Started going back and forth over 1 to warm up. Stopping not far after the jump and also getting the change and going through the corners... keeping Henry on his toes!

Then we did a whole bunch of different combinations of courses with all the jumps. I had some troubles when we did the oxer to the vertical, idk why but I did but was able to work through it. I kept getting deep spots- don't know what my issue was.

Henry jumped everything really well and was a rock star so I can't complain.

Saturday Henry has a trainer ride since hubby is working so I wasn't able to ride. I joked with my trainer that he was going to be awesome Saturday cause I put in some hard (but good) rides ... They jumped the same course as above, the jumps were just up 1 or 2 holes. He was great as I expected haha!

Going to the barn next to ours tonight to watch my bff run barrels :)

Henry will get turned out to graze tomorrow- rough life! lol
