Today was a training ride for LBR. Gary headed over to the stables around 9:00 a.m. to bring LBR up from his paddock and get him groomed for his lesson. The trainer commented that LBR was VERY responsive and that Cindy & LBR must have had a great ride the night before. She warmed him up at the walk/trot. She then cantered him for a bit and he was doing very well.
She started him on courses at the trot and he did a good job of keeping pace (not rushing in or out).
LBR did something he's never done today....he cantered an entire course (6 jumps) and completed flying lead changes...WOO HOO!!!!!! They took a little work from the trainer, but he got them. Gary, Cindy & the trainer are very proud of LBR.
After the ride, Gary rinsed and groomed LBR before leading him to his paddock for some grazing and treats.
