Horsey weekend ftw!

Saturday brought cake, dr pepper and oh yeah a lesson :)






Went down to get Henry and he was cutely waiting for me.

Groomed, tacked up and headed down to lunge. It was chilly so I made sure to grab my coat.

Got the crazies out, I seriously stood there while he ran a muck- then I encouraged him a little to make sure the crazies were all out :)

In our lesson my trainer told me to start out leg yielding him like we had done Thursday to prep for what was to come.

Flatted around- I felt loose which was frustrating but did my best to hold it together. Henry was a little more up then I would have liked but I never got yelled at for it so I must have been "faking it till we made it" well - lol!

On to jumping...

Here is a video Kat made.

And pics she took, LOVE pics, thanks Kat!









As you can see, it never warmed up- so weird since we have been having 90's and 100's lately!



On the walk back up to the barn, a tree in a pot fell over and just about got Juliana and I dumped. Both Henry and Louie whirled and spun- luckily we both laughed and then had to sit deep and push the nut heads forward past the tree - fewww made it!

Untacked, cleaned up, ate cake and drank Dr Pepper for Lyssettes birthday :)

Sunday was dollar day at the track so we headed out for Lyssettes birthday.

It was nice and relaxing, ate good nachos, hubby drank some beer and chatted with old friends and made some new ones.






Henry got a nice turn out Sunday :)

Oh and in one of the races, Henry's sister won and Ramones sister got second.. they were in the same race. Lyssette and I got a good laugh and realized that the sisters got the good racing genes!

Hack tonight, lesson Tuesday, off Wednesday, hopefully a hack Thursday, hack Friday and lesson Saturday.
