Cindy met Gary at the stables after work. He was lunging LBR in the round pen by the time she arrived.
Because he was free lunging LBR, Gary had the bridle on him.
After Cindy changed into riding clothes, she rode LBR in the sand arena. The barn owner/trainer was schooling another horse in the arena.
LBR behaved well, but carried his head a little high. Cindy did a lot of work riding with "legs only" at the walk and trot.
She cantered LBR both directions and he picked up the correct lead...woo hoo!!
Cindy kept the ride fairly short - about 40 minutes and ended on a good note. Gary groomed LBR after the ride and they returned him to his paddock for treats.
