Friday Henry had a trainer ride, they said he was great- yahoo!
Saturday was the usual group lesson.
A little but of no stirrup work went on, I suck at it and it hurts. I do a little each ride but swear I am not getting stronger or better. Lyssette asked if I was going to do no stirrup November with her ... I think it would kill me!
Then we jumped....
Warmed up over the vertical facing south in the above picture. (the one with the word vertical under the line)
Then Lyssette and I waited our turn.
Started with the following course:
X vertical off the right lead to the rainbow 3 strides to the blue gate, left turn to the green gate, right turn to the vertical down the center line, left turn to the 4 stride line, left turn to the domino oxer.
Our first go was great- expect getting in a little deep to the oxer in the 4 stride- trainer actually said it was the best course I had ever ridden to date- YAHOO!
Then I had to wait and wait while others went and then we did the 4 stride line a few more times, it was rough but then we got it right.
Great lesson for sure!
Sunday Henry got some pampering, walking and a little grass eating (the tinny bit we found).
Something Monday, lesson Tuesday, idk Wed/Thur/Fri... hoping the vet can get out to do Henry's teeth and i'll work my riding around that... lesson Saturday.
