June 29, 2010

This morning, Gary headed over to the stables when Cindy headed to work.

One of the asst. trainers had a planned ride on LBR. LBR was also due to have his feet trimmed/shoes reset.

Gary brought LBR up from his paddock and groomed him for his ride. "A" (asst. trainer) rode LBR in the sand arena. She worked him at the walk, trot & canter. As this was their first ride together, she didn't try to make him behave perfectly (i.e. slow down his trot/canter). Video will be posted soon.

After the flat work, she trotted him over some cross-rails and he was good.

When the ride was complete, Gary rinsed LBR off. The timing was perfect as the farrier had just finished another horse. LBR stood nicely for his trim/reset.

After the farrier, Gary let LBR graze for a bit before returning him to his paddock.
