you are on vacation!!! :)
Hubby spend the day doing some things with a friend so I got to spend my day with B- it was a blast and she is a doll as always.
I was able to ride this evening with Kat.
Grabbed the boys, groomed, tacked up, i lunged a quick min and then we got to work.
I am not sure what got into me, but I decided to make tonight the official first ride in some new tall boots ... I want them to be my new show boots so it's time to suck it up and do it. My feet hurt, were purple and it was hard to ride with little to no feeling!
Back to the ride... Henry was a bit lookie at the corner where he freaked out last Monday but my inside leg and a little tap with the whip on his bootie and he was quickly cooperative! ;)
Hacked around working on forward and staying in the frame, also reminding myself to keep my hands together... I don't feel like they are wide but it's something I've been getting yelled at for so I am working on getting them a smidge more together. I like being refined so I'll take it and improve upon myself the best I can.
We cantered both ways, working on being soft and listening. I didn't have a spur on and he was very quick to listen to my leg so that was good- though I am not sure what my heal was really doing cuase I couldn't feel it ha!
He and I were both sweaty and we didn't take any walk breaks in the 40-50 min we rode. Cooled him out a bunch and then did this....
B rode Henry with me which was a treat... she is so fun! I know I know she doesn't have a helmet on, working on that! I also want a new one so time to save some mula and get that done :)
Hosed him off, took him home to his grain that hubby took down to his stall and gave kisses.
Lesson Tuesday and idk about the rest of the week- going to talk to my trainer tomorrow to see what we want to do and if they are going to put a ride in on him.
