I had a lesson last night.
Got Henry, tacked him up, lunged (he bucked more then I think he has in the last 2 years combined that I have owned him), got on and got to the lesson. The ground was a little hard and crunchy in the big outdoor arena... he felt a little funny.
SOOOO I was glad when my trainer said to head to the indoor :)
I don't like jumping inside, but I don't like the hard funky ground more.
Inside he felt great and acted great... there were a lot of people inside and everyone was going different ways- but Henry was awesome, listening and just going with the flow!
At one point while jumping Erica and I met in the corner, thankfully we can both steer, sorry Erica!
|This is my boy friend.. don't worry my hubby knows lol!|
Cantered forever (it took everyone a bit to all get cantering so we just kept going while everyone else worked it out lol), did some lead changes and then some polls with Kat.
She did a little X and I tried to participate but was told to shoo lol.
Then I warmed up over a vertical a few times and then of course it had to get bigger. Henry was great, I need to remember to really keep him straight straight straight. My trainer is such a stickler on being straight... I watch videos, horse shows and see pictures where others aren't straight and see them winning but them I remember that I was to be the best I can be and I know she will hold me to that till the day I die haha!
One of the times I really berried up and Henry was AMAZING and with some leg and a cluck he jumped it, saint horse for sure!
Cooled out, untacked, hosed, iced, cleaned, headed home and grained him. Kisses too of course :)
Turn out today, idk Thursday (id like to ride but don't have anyone to watch B so hopefully a lunge), trainer ride Friday and lesson Saturday.
