Day 51 - August, 1

Meet Benito (:

Stopped to take a picture while putting on his shipping boots ( as he only has one on right now(; )

The day started fast; feeding, mucking out, turn out horses, fill inside and outside waters and hay all horses. I then loaded up the trailer for S.B's first day of eventing camp at CAF. We then loaded up Benito and headed off. When we got there, we found his stall and started unloading all his stuff. After everything was unloaded, I started getting Benito ready for his jump lesson. Her jump lesson was a group lesson with trainer Don Sachey.  SB was in a group with horses that have not jumped that much! Benito was wonderful and was jumping so good! Right after her jump lesson, she had to go to her flat work lesson. I untacked Benito and tacked him up for dressage! Her flat work lesson was with Jennifer Conou, and she already knows Benito so Jennifer got him moving very nice and it was really fun to watch. 

When we got home, I unloaded the trailer and put Benito back in his stall. I then let all the other horses in and fed them. After resting for a little bit, we were off again to CAF for a demo by Lauren Kieffer! She rode many different horses and it was a very cool demo. 

When we got home once again, I got Henny out and rode him by myself! We worked a lot on shortening and lenghtening his stride in trot and then making the circle smaller in trot and then leg yielding to the rail and asking for canter! He is doing really good!!

We are very excited for our show this weekend at HHP (:
