13. Do you board it or keep your horse at home?
Board, one day we hope to own property
14. Have you ever competed?
15. What do you compete in?
Hunters, last year we went up to 2'6 OF and this year probably will do the 2'6- 2'9 stuff, I hope :)
Last night we our weekly Tuesday night lesson. Henry's nose looked ok so I tacked up, lunged (he was NUTS) and as I was getting on was told to go back inside (we were outside) because the wind was C R A Z Y.
Henry was good, still high or spicy as I was calling it.
We went through the paces, adding in some shoulder in, sitting trot, 2 point at the trot and canter, counter bending etc.
Then we jumped a single fence. I warmed up over the baby vertical and then was told to wait ... so I waited. Of course she jacked it up. At first it looked big but after jumping it once I realized it was maybe 2'6 ... nothing bad. I like that I don't freak out anymore- ah good feeling for sure!
Anywho I am good at seeing my distances off the left lead but not the right, idk what my issue is... ugh!
Henry was good, I was ok.
I think he is a little sore cause he was landing on his left lead and then swapping right away to the right so I plan to take it easy on him this week...
Cleaned him up, iced his legs, cleaned my tack, put on his PJ's and took him home.
Turned out today, hack tomorrow, idk Friday and lesson Saturday :)
