Laid back hack, NOT

Tuesday night trainer was busy with her new grand baby so Erica, Kat and I had a fun low key ride.. well that was the plan.

Waiting for our turn





Hubby was nice and grabbed Henry for me.

I groomed- sheesh he is shedding- tacked up and waited for my turn in the round pen, there was a horse going NUTS in there. I knew that Henry was going to be nuts so he needed to get it out in the round pen, he's too well behaved on the lunge line so that wasn't an option.

Posing
After crazy man got his crazies out... got on and went to work. Henry was pretty good and then I circled on half the arena and all hell broke lose, he was dropping his shoulder and darting in away from the horse eating pile of polls and standards.

SO we spent way to much time going by that both directions till he decided my inside spur was worse then the pile of painted wood. THIS HORSE!!

We were both way more tired and sweaty then needed to be ha!

Wednesday he got turned out.

Hoping to do something with him tonight- but we are also trying to get ready for B's 3rd birthday party thats this weekend.

Trainer ride tomorrow and hopefully a hack Saturday :)

  2. All of our horses have been kind of insane lately, so maybe its just the weather! Good job hanging on and laughing it off!

  4. Even my level-headed guy is being a pickle last several rides. Might have to take to lunging beforehand - heaven forbid!

  5. Spring must be near, because Reno, the lesson horse I ride, is also shedding.

  7. OOOH, poles are SO DANGEROUS! At least only when they're on the ground - when they're jump-shaped, they're perfectly fine, right? LOL!
