February 23, 2011

LBR had a training ride today. Gary headed over to the stables to groom and tack him up. The trainer rode LBR in the grass arena today. His flat work was good. He had trouble with the "quick" corners at the show this weekend so rather than do courses on him (he can jump - loves it) she worked him in a 20 meter circle at the trot and canter over ground poles. He found it very difficult mentally. He eventually got the hange of it and figured out how many strides between each of the 4 poles and not to switch leads over them.

After the session, Gary rinsed LBR off (it was a very warm spring day in Central Texas) and then led him around a bit to dry off. LBR walked through the canyon (aka tire ruts) on the first try today.

Gary returned LBR to his paddock and gave him carrot treats.
