Yep I listened to late 90's R&B on Pandora while I rode :)
Grabbed Henry, groomed him, tacked up and got on. Oh and I decided to ride in the twisted snaffle per my trainers instruction.
Since it was Monday, I decided to start out just hacking around to warm him up. He started out great, then got really weird and jumpy over the random wet spots in the footing of the arena- worked through that and then he was good again.
After doing a good hack I decided to work on picking up both leads on a straight line... I came about 8 ish feet off the rail and worked on picking up the left lead and right lead. Wanted to make sure he was listening to my leg and what I was asking and not just going because of the direction we were traveling... does that make sense? I did this both directions and he was AWESOME!!!
We were both sweaty so I walked for a good while cooling him out.
Hopped off and snapped a picture. He's so "full" haha! And it's not fat, one solid boy for sure!
Hosed him off, ices his leg while I cleaned tack and took him home. Kisses and cookies were given of course!
Turned out Tuesday, lesson Wednesday, turn out Thursday, trainer ride Friday and lesson Saturday.
