April 9, 2011

Cindy had a lesson on LBR today. It's a good thing that he's so fit....less than 24 hours between lessons.

Cindy's brother who is a professional photographer and brother-in-law came out to watch the lesson and take pictures - there should be some good pics added later.

The lesson started out with flat work at the trot. The trainer added some strengthening parts - trotting at the half-seat, trotting ground poles in the half-seat, and no cheating/using LBR's neck for balance. Cindy's legs were burning.

They cantered before starting the course work. LBR got flustered when he missed his right lead on the first try so Cindy decided to skip it.

LBR was excellent in the course work. He never speed up or rushed away from any cross-rail or fence. He cantered nicely away from the green brush box every time today.

Based on how good LBR and Cindy were doing, the instructor added in the "rolly-polly" to their final course. They took it perfectly.

After the ride, Cindy de-tacked and groomed LBR. Everyone walked back to LBR's paddock and gave him carrots.
