Well Henry was a bit fussy and hubby's phone was taking all blurry pics.. boo.
I rode through Henry's fussiness- just hacked him around- and we were both drenched in sweat by the end.
|Don't mind my wrists!!!|
Friday I went up when B napped and rode. It was cooler (in the 80's) so Henry was a little more high.
I rode his around for about 30/40 min and worked on trying to get him to listen, chill out and have a nice hack. That didn't happen soooooo....
I called my trainer to ask what she thought about me going to the lower round arena and letting him get out some of his wild oats. She said to put him on the line first to see if he would get out any bucks and then let him free... he was a perfect gentleman on the line and then ran full out and bucked a few times when I let him off... guess he needed to blow off some steam since he hasn't been able to do that in 3 weeks.
|Fancy boy is floating :)|
Friday night we went to the fair which was a lot of fun and some delishious food!!
|I love caramel apples and pumpkin pie, can't wait to eat this bad boy!!|
Saturday I had a lesson. I was super slow moving and crampy/achy but made myself go ride. Henry was back to normal after his crazy run Friday.
We rode outside and the footing was ok, I just rode in off the track. Henry felt great except a little twist in his canter to the right that I have been feeling (I called the Chiropractor and am waiting for a reply still). But he is totally good :)
We went through the paces with everyone and even got to jump a little woo hoo!
We did an X back and forth to warm up. Then a line (6 stride) vertical and vertical wall- did that both ways a few times. Then we did a 2 stride in and out... X to oxer. Henry was great, felt great and hey we still have it lol!
Cooled him out, untacked, clipped up his muzzle and bridle path, hosed him off, iced him, gave grain, cleaned tack, took him back home in the golf cart, filled his water, gave kisses and went back up to the barn to clean the rest of my stuff up.
|Driving and taking pictures is totally ok right?!|
