Got to the barn to ride last night, and was told by the barn staff that my trainer had ridden him already that day. We're holding a pretty big ICP clinic at the barn all week - it's where trainers who want to become USEA certified get judged on how well they teach lessons and also on theory. I guess they needed someone to ride for something, probably a mock lesson, and my trainer rode Connor.

I was totally cool with that, even though I didn't know about it in advance. Darn, a way better rider than me rode him in front of other professionals who know what they're doing? And I won't get charged for a trainer ride? Such a bummer. /s
Instead, I picked out his tail while he slept in the crossties:
