F S S...

Friday Henry had a trainer ride.. report was that he was good but strong.

Saturday (weekly lesson was moved to Sunday) I had about an hour worth of time at the barn so I got Henry, groomed him, booted him up and went down to the big round arena for him to blow off some steam. He was super lazy lunging and then I just let him wander for a bit and we went back to work and BAM the crazy came out!

Cooled him out, quick bath and put him back.






Sunday we had our lesson.

Got Henry, tacked up, lunged and got on.

My grandma came to watch my lesson, she is super special to me in MANY ways but for the purpose of this blog- she is the reason I was able to ride/show as a kid.

We flatted around, I got told to keep my shoulders back- surprise surprise! :)

Warmed up over some jumps... then she raised them and did a course I think that involved a gate, a little swedish oxer, panel vertical, square oxer, an X ... i think that was it lol.

Off Monday, lesson Tuesday, lesson Wednesday, off Thursday, trainer ride Friday and hack Saturday.

  2. That's why you're supposed to update after the lesson but before the next one! Glad your grandma was able to watch.

  4. My trainer wants me to put a sign on the back of Loki's ears that says "keep your shoulders back!" Who knew it could be so hard to remember this seemingly simple fact, lol!

    Awesome about your grandma!

  5. I have SUCH a hard time with my shoulders too... and it translates into my hands. *insert sheepish grin here* It's all a process.

    So awesome that your grandma could come watch. :)
