This or That..

Tuesday had a lesson. Lunged Henry, well he kind of lunged himself- bucking like a CRAZY!

Hacked around as the lesson was already started. He was good.

Jumped... warmed up over a baby X and a few other things then did a little course: line in 6, left turn to a vertical/panel, tight inside left turn to a gate, right roll back turn to a vertical.

Henry was good, not great but not bad.

Cooled out and did our normal cleaning, iceing, grain etc.

Off today, maybe a hack tomorrow, trainer ride Friday, hack/lesson Saturday...


  1. GM says to be prepared, but I'm scared to be "prepared" with my horse haha.

    1. Lol I always have both with Henry, not cause we need them often- but when I do, I have them! :) And if I ever am able to ride with him, I'll be ready! :)

  2. Henry was practicing for the rodeo yesterday lol

  3. I always like having a crop, especially when going up/down hills. :3 Red enjoys running me in woodland and into trees, so it's nice to tap him on the butt when he acts like he wants to do that. LOL. Been there done that, my arm was a bloody mess from treelimbs afterwards. :))

  4. Totally agree with "always be prepared".

    1. :) Yep my trainer would kill me if I wasn't prepared lol!


Henry and I love to hear from you guys! Leave us comments!!! :)
