June 11, 2010

Cindy headed over to the stables after work. Gary was playing in a golf tournament and arrived as Cindy was grooming LBR after bringing him up from his paddock.

LBR had found some mud to roll in and had to be curried off. Sometimes Cindy & Gary wish he would be more mud averse.

Cindy rode LBR in the sand arena. It was packed down from the rain and soft in a few spots which they avoided.

There were 3-4 other horses in the arena being ridden at the same time. LBR stayed fairly focused but as he had not been ridden seriously much this week he was a bit of a handful at times. Cindy attempted to canter him a couple of times but he was struggling with getting the correct lead and was a bit frisky. She decided to bring him back to the trot and they did some good course work.

Gary rode LBR for a while after Cindy. LBR was quiet tired by the end of the rides.
Gary cooled LBR by walking in the sand arena for a bit. They then de-tacked, rinsed and groomed LBR.

At the end of the night, they led him to his paddock and gave him treats before leaving.
