This warm muggy weather is WEIRD!
Tuesday got to the barn, put my ice boot inserts in the freezer, got Henry, groomed, tacked up, got on and walked Henry a lunch around the indoor while everyone else got on.
We headed outside.. I wasn't too stoked on this because the ground was hard as usual so I tried to not ride on the rail and not take and corners sharply.
Henry is feeling better but after all the walking/hosing/icing/hacking I have done I want to make sure he is 110% before we jump again :)
Flatted around with everyone and then while others jumped, I worked on no stirrups. I am doing this every ride to build up on my strength :)
Cooled him out, hosed off his back, iced his legs, grained him, cleaned tack, took him home and gave kisses!
Off today, something for Henry tomorrow and a lesson on another horse for me, probably a trainer hack Friday and another hack Saturday.
Review on the ice boots after one use:
- They are easy to use
- Stayed on him well
- They are well made
- They weren't cold at all when I took them off and the area didn't feel as cool as i would have liked either so I am putting them in the deep freezer to see if that gets them colder then a normal freezer. I will try again tomorrow and let you all know :)
