Dear Trainer...

I think you forgot that I just had a baby and that this is my 5th ride back.



Just kidding.. kinda ;)

Thursday I went out in the am for a hack... flatted around and then before I knew it, trainer was having my jump a little vertical and working on keeping Henry straight (and a smooth lead change at the right spot) ALL.THE.WAY down the center of our gigantic arena. Don't get me wrong, I was up for the challenge and did everything she asked without a peep...

Incase you are new here, Henry is strong- so strong. We have used a million bits and nothing gets him off your hands but lots of stopping and backing up and eve with that he is still just a strong horse.

My calfs, back, shoulders and ok well my whole body is sore! What was supposed to be a nice 30 min hack turned into an hour and 20 min hard ride... GO ME!

It felt great at the time ha!

BUT I am so happy to be back riding and love that I am not scared or feel like I am going to die this time around :)






Friday Henry had a trainer ride... He was good and I caught the tail end of it :)

Turn out Sat and Sun and then back to work for us both Monday :)
