September 3, 2010


Gary & Cindy headed over to the stables after Cindy got home from work. It was a wonderfully quiet evening. They were the only boarders/riders as the stables.

Gary brought LBR up from his paddock while Cindy staged the tack and grooming supplies. A cold front had come through overnight and it was a wonderful cool evening (82F degrees).

After tacking up, Cindy rode LBR in the sand arena. It was a WONDERFUL ride. LBR trotted nicely on a loose rein, was very flexible, listened and dropped his head when asked and seemed to have fun. After riding on the flat at the walk and trot Cindy worked LBR at the trot over ground poles and cross-rails. LBR was so consistent and even paced.

Cindy then did a little more flat work at the trot. Then...she and LBR had a blast at the canter. LBR got his leads perfectly tonight and cantered at a slow but ground covering pace. They were both having a blast!!!! Circle here, around again, half way around the arena, around the jumps...WOO HOO!!

After the cantering, Cindy trotted LBR a bit before taking LBR for a walk outside the arena to cool down.

Gary rinsed LBR off and Cindy & Gary led him back to his paddock. The sunset tonight was a taste of Fall to come. Beautiful pink clouds, a cool breeze and a sweet horse being shared together - it doesn't get any better.
