|Compliments of my 2 year old :)|
Last night I was on my own for the hack. There were people around the barn so that was nice to not be alone :) And I begged hubby to come with in-case no one was there.
Got Henry, tacked up, did a quick lunge and hopped on. By this time there was a lesson going on.
BTW he is getting his winter coat.. I swear it happened over night!
Henry was pretty good, a few hairy eyes at the flapping tent and the guys and their trucks (jumping in and out, messing around, leading this in it and driving way to aggressively) but as long as I keep my inside leg on him and lift my inside hand a little, he pays attention to me and is a good boy.
I worked on soft (backing, halting, keeping in a frame) and traditions (sharp, keeping in a frame and a good pace).
My new pad has started to squeak .. it's lovely lol.
After I was done and cooled Henry out, B got to have a little ride... I love that she wants to ride Henry. On the drive to the barn she told me that I was going to ride Buster and she was going to ride Henry- good try girl! Henry was SO careful when B was on him... I lead Henry and Hubby kept a hand on B in-case something happened and he needed to grab B. In no time she will be hacking him around!
Hosed off Henry since he was sweaty and hubby walked him while B and I cleaned tack, put everything away and chatted with Erica :)
Lesson tonight, off tomorrow, hack Thursday, maybe a trainer ride Friday and lesson Saturday :)
She Moved to Texas is having a contest.. check it out, errr not cause I want to win!
