Hey Tuesday!



I wasn't quite in the mood to ride but I made myself go.

I was there quite early so I got Henry and gave him a good grooming and tacked up slowly.

I was the only one there for our lesson for a long time, thought it was going to be just me but then Erica and Kat showed up.

Lunges Henry and then headed inside for the lesson. The wind was C R A Z Y so we rode inside. Henry was sleepy in the round pen and to start our lesson but as the lesson went on, he became more and more high... gee thanks Henry.

We did a lot of shoulder in then haunches in... switching it up to move that bootie around!

Cantering we worked off the rail and counter bend.

Then we jumped this fun exercise....

Jump 1 circle to the left around the box (2) and then jump 3. Then did it backwards. Then I cantered the whole thing. Then she had us do 2 circles around the box.

Henry was loving it, I was loving it but sheesh all that steering!

Cooled him out and gave lots of love.

It was super cold so I curried his whole body to get ride of the sweat, blanketed, grained and gave kisses.

He is getting his teeth done either Thursday or Friday so I will work my riding around that :)

  3. I'm drooling over that view! And that exercise sounds like it would be fun, even over ground poles.... Now I want to give it a shot. :)

  7. Henry has a gorgeous view! Good that you rode anyway - the only ride you regret is the one you didn't do.
