I rode last night, I was a lone ranger at the barn and as much as I don't like riding alone, I did it.
Got Henry, tacked up and headed down to lunge. There was a horse hauling in the arena across the street so Henry showed off his sweet moves too.
Got on... went right to work. He was a bit heavy but a few stops and backing and it wasn't bad. His frame was better and he was forward, moving great and listening. We had one moment where the cat jumped down from above and tried to kill us but other then that he was solid.
We were both sweating by the end of the ride, again a good feeling :)
Cooled him out and walked a bunch, untacked, threw him him in a turn out so he could roll while I walked Louie around for Juliana... hosed Henry and put him in a stall to hangout while I cleaned...
As I was cleaning my tack, hubby and daughter showed up. They helped me get together Henry and Louie's grain while I finished cleaned tack, picking everything up and spraying Henry down with flyspray/tail mane stuff :)
We took Henry back, filled both horses waters, gave them grain and cleaned Henry's stall.
