Day 2: My Tack

Hey Tuesday! No lesson but I was still going to ride. I got to the barn around 4:15 and got Henry, tacked up and went down to lunge...






Came back up to the indoor to ride with my peeps. They were all tacking up and I got to work.

I worked on a soft (for Henry) horse, a lower hack frame, quick response, no stirrups and sharp transitions. There were to kiddos riding so it was good practice for us- they stopped and turned without warning quite often lol.





He was great, our ride was great and I was feeling great (even with the no stirrup burn lol).





Cooled him out, got off and tag teamed Erica and Kat, untacked mr awesome, cleaned up, hosed him off, got his grain, took him home, gave kisses and left.

Day 2: My Tack

Off Wednesday, hack Thursday, turn out Friday, hack Saturday.

  5. I do not mind no stirrup work in a dressage saddle, but hate it in a jumping saddle. Huge difference, I guess! I love the color of your saddle.
