April 8, 2010
Gary headed over to the stables in the afternoon as Cindy was not feeling up to going after work tonight. When Gary arrived, LBR was very happy...the newly cleared, still muddy area provided for GREAT rolling. Gary brought LBR up to the stables, groomed him and tacked up using his HDR saddle and the D-ring snaffle with the German martingale. It was lessons night so Gary decided to ride for a bit in the sand arena while the beginer lesson (flat work) was going. LBR did GREAT!
When the lessons started their pattern work, Gary rode LBR down to the grass arena. There were two(2) advanced rider for the later lesson warming up and LBR seemed to enjoy the company. Gary worked him at the walk/trot and even tried a few strides of cantering...WOO HOO!!! They did some patterns before heading out for a trail ride.
They rode down the road to the end of the property. They then returned and explored TJ & Keeper's paddock for a while. After the ride, Gary de-tacked and groomed LBR before taking him back to his paddock for treats.
