April 27, 2010

Cindy headed over to meet Gary & LBR a little later than usual due to issues at work. She arrived around 6:30 p.m. and Gary had already tacked up LBR for the ride and started lunging by the time Cindy changed clothes.

Due to lessons in the sand arena, they headed to the grass arena for their ride.

Cindy worked LBR for about 20 minutes at the walk/trot using primarily leg aids. LBR was a bit distracted by the caretaker and her dogs wandering around the paddocks, but once they headed back to the barn, LBR settled nicely.

As LBR was focused and calm after the distraction, Cindy cantered him. LBR did GREAT! They made several trips around the arena at the canter (until Cindy's legs were exhausted).

After the ride, Cindy detacked and groomed LBR. They then all headed to the common area for grazing before LBR was returned to his paddock.
