One more day!

B and I headed out to the barn last night when I got off work.

Walking down to Henrys stall at 5 pm.. blah darkness!

Hi Boys!

Got Henry, headed back to the barn, groomed, tacked up, quick lunge and got on.

I worked on transitions and keeping in a frame and not falling apart. Starting out walk to trot and back to walk, then walk to trot to halt, trot, halt, walk, trot... you get the point.

I also worked on changing directions and changing the bend at the right point as well as going down the center line of the arena. I know Hunters don't do that stuff at shows but Henry can get really attached to the wall/rail so I work mostly off the wall/rail to make sure he isn't focused on that.






Cooled him out, untacked, groomed, hock booted, grained and cleaned.

Hubby shows up and took Henry back in the dark for me- woo hoo!

Lesson tonight, off tomorrow, hacking the rest of the week.

    1. Yes I am thankful that she is old enough now (and well behaved for a 2 year old) to come with me so I can get my rides in.
