I hope everyone had a fab Christmas! On the horse front I got the BoT exercise sheet from my bff and hubby got me a new wool western pad and the Antares Classic Hunter Girth :) He got me some great big ticket items, so thankful!!
Henry has had some days out hand walking/grazing and some hacks.
I took him down to the lower really big round arena to blow some steam off and then ride yesterday. It's been a while since anything outside has been dry enough to ride in.
He was LATHERED when we were done. Ended up working on counter canter to keep his brain on me because it was so windy and he was high.
This morning was a lesson. The arena was packed but I flatted myself around everyone and then we jumped.
Warmed up over and X with polls on either side. Then added a line.. 5 slow strides or 4 forward strides. Did that back and forth in both 4 and 5.. it was really good for us both.
Did lots of cleaning and gave Henry some bran mash.
