June 7, 2010

Back to work for Cindy. Afterward, she and Gary headed to the stables.

Gary led LBR up from his paddock while Cindy staged the grooming supplies and tack.

LBR was a bit frisky from having the day off so Gary lunged him in the round pen. LBR started off rusty, got ornery and finally calmed down nicely. He was quite sweaty from being frisky.

Cindy rode him in the sand arena for about 45 minutes. They worked on leg yields, transitions up/down from the trot and flexing in figure eights/circles.

After flat work, Cindy rode him through three (3) different course patterns over cross-rails and LBR was well behaved - no rushing in our out of the obstacles.

Cindy cooled him off by walking him on a totally loose rein and guiding him with legs only.

Gary rinsed LBR off and all three headed to the common area for a peaceful round of grazing. The night ended with a few alfalfa cubes and a beautiful sunset.
