Feeling 100%

Wednesday I did a light hack to make sure Henry was feeling normal after our lesson... he felt great woot!!


We just went through our paces and did some long and low work.

Thursday was a crazy day for us so Henry had the day off.

Friday morning I was able to squeeze in a hack. 

I tacked up Henry and put him on the lunge line- he was CRAZY! Three other people lunged too and their horses were nuts as well- Henry was the least crazy of the bunch- I hadn't seen him that high in a long time. Maybe the crazy rain and wind were the cause.

I hopped on him and he was still a bit bright - he wanted to join the other chestnut that was being cray!! (her owner lunged her for like 20 min and she was leaping through the air pulling her owner with her) J and I stayed in one half of the ring because the other horse being lunged was all over the place and not predictable lol.

Once I got to work, he was great and settled in. Trainer let me know that there was a flapping plastic bad on the tractor and that is probably why he was crazy. So once the other girl was done lunging, I went and make sure he wasn't going to lose his mind by it- he gave it a hairy eye a few time but was totally good.


It was pooring and pooring while I rode and after- once I got Henry untacked and cleaned up, I opened up his doors and he watched the chaos outside lol.

Saturday I planned to ride but decided to take advantage of hubby being home and we packed a bunch more and took a load to where we are storing stuff till we move.

The horses got their vaccs so I went and checked on Henry in the evening and he seemed to be doing great. 

The rain has really taken a toll on the road to the barn, it's a MESS!

Hopefully this rain will let up some so we can dry out a bit!

Also, super exciting news- my sister made the semi finals at the Houston Rodeo! Trying to find an affordable ticket so I can go next week- fingers crossed!

  2. I love it once a horse matures enough so that the extra energy can be channeled rather than turn to chaos! I love the photo of him looking at the rain- it reminds me of Eeyore: 'when will this rain stop?' :)
