Rodeo Weekend.. in AZ

Let me back up to last week...

Bath Thursday after a good hack


I had a lesson, hacked twice and Henry has a trainer ride on Friday.

His game face for our US practice hack :)


He was great for all.. I will recap the lesson..

I flatted myself as trainer set the jumps and then we jumped.

Again they were good sized jumps- go Karley! Henry doesn't need any cheering, the height is no problem for him, it's just me whos chicken ;)


We worked mostly in the two lines, rainbow oxer to oxer and the wall to the skinny domino... mostly in the wall to the skinny domino b/c I was the queen of getting in deep to the first jump.

It all boils down to me trusting Henry, keeping my pace and not holding... once I do that, its amazing how it all falls into place.

Hubby snapped this from the car.. next time hopefully he will take OF pics :)

Then over the weekend we took a quick trip to see my bff run in two rodeos because she was in AZ. We drove through the night Fri, rodeo Sat, rodeo Sun (which she won- woo hoo) and drove back home through the night Sun.



I didn't want to leave her... I was seriously SO tempted to just go with her but I have that show coming up and Henry needs me. But when she is back in CA you better bet we will be going as many places with her as possible :)
