February 17, 2011

LBR had a training ride today. Gary headed over around 10:00 a.m. to groom him. It was an extremely windy (gusts to 35 mph) day.

LBR did his flat work well, but after a few courses, and with horses in the paddocks running around like crazy, he lost focus.

The trainer got off of him and lunged him. He did his famous gallop with whinnies/snorts/squeals in one spot of the circle repeatedly. After a few minutes of getting that out of his system. He started cantering properly and did perfect transitions on the lunge line.

After the training, Gary bathed LBR and the trainer "pulled" his mane. The trainer is taking him to a show on Saturday...if all goes well with schooling, he'll be in the 2'3" classes.
