January 22, 2011
Gary & Cindy loaded up the truck and headed over the the CAQHA show at the Travis County Expo center in the morning. They had a tack swap and Gary wanted to get feedback on his saddle stands.
He got some positive feedback, encouragement and marketing ideas.
They stayed there until mid-afternoon when they headed over to the stables. Gary brought LBR up from his paddock while Cindy staged the grooming supplies and tack.
LBR stood nicely for grooming and Cindy led him to the sand arena for their ride. LBR was a little stiff today and his mouth seemed to still be off from having his teeth floated. He tossed his head a bit but finally settled in nicely.
Cindy worked him at the walk, trot and canter on the flat. He missed his right lead the first time, but got it on the second attempt. His canter is such a joy to ride!!!
Gary then rode LBR at the walk and trot and took him over a few cross rails. They ended with a short trail ride. LBR got excited when a bunch of horses charged around/at him in their paddocks. Gary decided to dismount and work LBR with walking through the trailer ruts.
After the ride and grooming, Cindy and Gary returned LBR to his paddocks for treats.
