I got to the barn, grabbed Henry, tacked up, did a quick lunge (he wasn't fresh at all which was surprising after having 2 days off) and hopped on.
He was a little wide eyed in "the corner" but we worked through it.
He was a good boy, cantered nicely- we worked on departures and them being crisp from the halt, walk and trot to the canter. He was a little heavy so we backed a decent amount but hey that's all part of the game.
My goal was to just get him out and moving around.
I cooled him out a bit and then hopped off and noticed that his nose was snotty. There is a cold going around and I was hoping that it would miss Henry- boo.
Hosed off his saddle area, cleaned my tack, put everyone away, got his grain and headed down to put him away.
Rode in my new boots again and they are feeling better. I noticed that my left ankle doesn't hurt go limp in them (can't push my heals down as far lol) so with that and after seeing the Dr, I'm am pretty sure I push my heal down to far/put to much pressure on the left leg/ankle/heal and cut off the use. The Dr said he didn't see anything and since it doesn't hurt any other time then about 20 min into my lesson that it isn't "hurt."
Pending is nose/temp: I might have a lesson tonight, off tomorrow, lesson Thursday, trainer ride Friday and lesson Saturday.
