September 2, 2010

Gary & Cindy headed to the stables when Cindy got home after work. The summer temperatures continue - it was 102F degrees.

Thursday nights are lesson nights so the sand arena was not available for riding. After Gary brought LBR up from his paddock, they groomed LBR and tacked him up.

Cindy mounted LBR in the sand arena and walked him around for a couple of laps before heading to the grass arena.

Cindy started LBR at the walk and then they worked on loose rein, well paced trotting. LBR seemed a bit stiff so they did a lot of flexing exercies. After LBR loosened up, Cindy cantered him both directions. LBR was having a blast. They did full laps in the arena, half laps, circles, etc. They didn't jump tonight.

After the ride, Cindy cooled LBR down by taking a short trail walk.

Gary unsaddled LBR and rinsed him off after the ride (LBR was VERY sweaty). Cindy & Gary led LBR back to his paddock where he enjoyed carrot and alfalfa treats.
