|Don't forget to enter the 2 Point Challenge!|
Oh I've been watching the Capital Challenge all day, I mean working hard at work ;) How fun it would be to show there!
It's getting dark to early these days!
After tacking up, lunging and getting on- the sun was setting. I started the lesson before anyone else was there... we dove right into cantering and then added some counter bending- oh it was great fun, Henry and I both loved it :)
We were a hot mess to the right with a left bend but eventually got it all sorted out.
I walked a bit while Erica and Lyssette warmed up and did flat work.
Then I jumped....
Then we did a course- X to gate, left turn to the Domino boxes, right turn to the one stride, right turn to the gate to rainbow.
My pace wasn't all there.. I was to slow into my rainbow/gate line so he kept hauling... gotta get that worked out. We finally ended well and we are both sweaty but feeling accomplished.
I thought I was done but no we went down to the bank and trainer made us do that up and down, once at the walk, a bunch at the trot and canter... Henry was loving it more then I was- it freaked me out. Up is no prob... down oh lordy that scares me. It was funny how Henry was pulling and having a great time doing it though.
|Thankfully I have a trainer who tells me this... often ... cause I need it lol!|
Cooled out, untacked, sponged his saddle area, grained while I cleaned tack and he dried, blanketed and gave kisses.
Hack tonight, off Thursday, trainer ride Friday and lesson Saturday.
2 Point timing will happen today, wish me luck!
