This week is going to be crazy but awesome at the same time, hubby graduates from his 27 week training Friday!!!
Back to Henry...
Thursday I had a lesson. I was inside with more beginner lesson folk, it was awesome haha! Almost had a run in with one and I called out over and over where I was going but it didn't matter, good thing Henry has good brakes now! :)
This was our set up.. meaning lead changes, keeping a steady rhythm/seeing every distance and having to be prepared at all times (bc of the small indoor and other riders).
I felt like it was a great lesson, we did it probably a million times but thats ok cause practice make perfect right? We were really spot on with each other and I was seeing almost all my distances.
Cleaned him up, grained and kissed him.
Friday he was off.
Saturday was lesson day. All I can say is that it was SO WINDY... like blow you off your horse and you can't hear the trainer windy. I maybe could hear a tid bit as i went by her but most of the lesson I was just guessing what I needed to do lol! Henry was pretty well behaved, we were both just trying to stay together :)
Since he didn't get a trainer ride Friday, J got on and jumped him around this course:
My trainer set up a new course down in the big arena. I planned to get on after J and jump him some but he was being so good that my trainer said that we should end there. I was totally ok with it cause I love it when Henry is being good!
I hosed him off, cleaned his boy parts, cleaned his tail, cleaned all my tack, grained him and cleaned/filled him water (I have an extra barrel with water in it for him cause his automatic water always smells).
