Cindy stopped by the house after work and she and Gary headed to the stables together.
After grooming and tacking up, Cindy led LBR to the sand arena. There were lessons in progress so she mounted in the sand arena and rode down to the grass arena.
LBR felt a little stiff when she started riding. He was probably sore as this was his fifth straight day riding and last nights lesson was pretty intense.
Cindy worked him on serpentines in and around the jumps for a while at the trot and he loosened up.
He was responding very well and was relaxed. Cindy cantered him both directions and he picked up his leads correctly each time.
After the work, Cindy cooled him down at the walk for a while. Gary then detacked, groomed and rinsed him off. LBR was in a coma like state in the wash stall. He was enjoying the cool water and quiet.
After Gary returned LBR to his paddock, Gary rode a friends horse breifly. He is an older paint gelding who took one of the young girls at the stables up to the 2'9 level before he stopped enjoying it. Gary looked good on him and got the horse to walk over ground poles and trot over cross rails....something the horse hasn't been happy with.
Gary detacked and groomed the friends horse and he and Cindy headed home around 9:00 p.m.
