Saturday was lesson day. I was running a tad late so I hustled to get Henry, tack him up and lunge. When I got to the round arena, there was a line so I didn't feel quite so bad anymore.
Lunges home boy- he wasn't high at all. Got on and got going in the lesson. He wasn't perky at all, I was pushing him a lot which isn't a normal ride for us.
We flatted around in the lesson- he was good, a little heavy so stopping and backing was in order a few times.
Jumping started with cavalettis, then an X.
Then Juliana and I did a mini course... trot a blue and white vertical, around left lead to the ranbow oxer, right lead to the domino oxer, left lead to the 5 stride line. That line gets me every time, that 5 feels so forward but I need to JUST DO IT!
The other course we did was domino oxer, left lead to the 5 stride line roll back to the rainbow oxer.
I was quite warm during the lesson, at one point I had to take off my helmet and cool off. This warmer weather is kicking my bootie.
Cooled Henry off, gave a quick bath, ices his leg, put on all his fly attire, grained him, took him to his stall and kissed him.
