September 18, 2010

Gary and Cindy headed to the stables around 9:30 a.m. It's still fairly warm in Central Texas (highs in the mid-90's). Gary brought LBR up from his paddock while Cindy set out the grooming supplies and tack. Gary groomed and saddled LBR and Cindy mounted him in the sand arena. It was fairly quiet at the stables this morning. "Y" was riding "BP" when Cindy started riding, but they were about through with their ride. Cindy rode LBR at the walk/trot/canter both directions and worked on flexing and leg yields. They also trotted some ground poles. Cindy kept the ride short as Gary was riding today. Gary rode LBR in the sand arena. They warmed up on the flat and then started doing course work over cross rails. They worked mostly at the trot, but Gary did let LBR canter away from one jump. After the arena work, they took a trail ride around the stables - visiting paddocks and the grass arena.

After the ride, Cindy took off LBR's tack and Gary rinsed/groomed him. They ended the visit with LBR enjoying some grass in the common area before going back to his paddock for treats.
