This was on the back of our Xmas card :)
I'm really looking forward to the trainer's thoughts on him. And I'm trying not to think too far into the future (ie. if Coach D doesn't want to ride him....how the eff will I have time to ride him? And my daily feelings about keeping him longterm waffle by the hour...)
I didn't do much with him last week but we had a fun liberty/in-hand session yesterday. He's actually quite fun to play with at liberty.
I also gave him his spring "hair cut" a bit early. I don't pull manes (I suck at it and I read some article a million years ago that claimed it was painful that continues to haunt me). I cut them.
I know this is a bit cringe-worthy to most proper equestrians but it works ok for me! I do one big cut and then slowly even it out over a week or two. I didn't want Henry's long winter mane getting in the way at the trainer's place. I also banged his tail again.
He has a hair cut and is ready to get a real job! :)
