|Day 28: Barn Pets, George (left) and Pepper (right)|
Saturday's lesson came around and Hubby and B came to watch AND take pics! :)
Tacked up, lunged and hopped on.
Trainer had us hack around, Henry was is a mood... strong, opinionated, spooking at a chair (that we have seen a million times) and really sensitive (I was letting him know I wanted a frame but by no means was I being rough or crazy with my hands, trainer even said I was ok- he was just in a mood). I tried to ignore the drama queen.
Of course he would be a punk when hubby finally comes to watch ugh!
Then we moved onto jumping...
Warmed up over 1 with the group...
Back and forth back and forth.
Then I did a course...
Left turn to 2
Long Right turn/approach to 4 and 5
We did this a few times having to get specific fences "right"... the pictures of a compilation of all my trips.
Thankfully Henry loves jumping and despite our discussions earlier in the lesson, he was good to jump.
Yay for hubby taking pics!!
Sunday was turn out day.
Monday was a special lesson becuase of the holiday.
I did the flat part of the lesson and then he was schooled (since there wasn't a training ride Friday) for the OF portion.
We did lots of shoulder in and haunches in for the lesson, I worked on keeping his hips straight and my corners sharp... we rode inside since it was raining we flatted inside, I haven't ridden inside in a long time but he was good.
While Henry was being jumped, I got to hop on a pony in training... oh man does he take a lot of pushing but he is cute and was fun!
Untacked Henry, hosed him off, cleaned him up, took him home with his grain and gave kisses.
Lesson tonight, turn out/off Wednesday, hack Thursday, idk Friday and lesson Saturday.
