Henry had been full of sass!
Thursday I was alone for my hack, Erica was leaving as I was getting on. I decided not to lunge and just hope on- HA! Ended up getting off and letting him blow off some steam ;)
Got back on and went to work. I've decided Henry hates being ridden alone in the arena.
Hacked around a bit and then we worked on canter, halt, backup, canter, halt, canter, halt, back up, canter the other way, halt, canter the other way....
Goal was to really get him first soft and second listening to me. It worked!
We were both pooped by the end.. cooled him out.
Bathed and cleaned the man parts.
Friday was a trainer ride.
More sass from Henry. Wondering if it's the new bit they are riding in- but my trainer knows her stuff so yeah.
He jumped well. It's funny cause I am weaker typically off the left side and J is weaker off the right side. Maybe Henry will be equal b/c of our special eyes?
