No stirrup work with Gatsby. Yep that's right I finally decided with a push from my riding teacher to loose the stirrups. I was nervous but I knew that I needed to do it and that doing it would make me feel more confident. I started off by warming Gatsby up with stirrups getting him to work long and low. really stretching.  He was great and you could see on Gatsby and rocky their heave line working not sure if I've spelt that right and you could also see all of their top line working it fascinated me and I cant wait to learn more about it. when I had worked him on both sides I decided it was time to pick up the contact and getting him working in an outline it took a while to get him into it today as it was fairly windy. We moved on to the trot fairly quickly and he was so much easier to get in to an outline he looked fantastic if I do say so myself. His trot was lovely and when we decided to move on to the no stirrup work. We did a few transitional and his trot was so easy to sit to it was like sitting on a really comfy chair i loved it. when I had done this I moved on to having my stirrups back. I spent about 20 minutes working on doing pole work to start with Gatsby was really lazy but by the end he was picking his feet up and he was great. He started to really work. I didn't do any canter work with him today as we decided that I need a change from it and so did Gatsby. 

We have also discovered we think why I have issues with my left leg. Fiona thinks that when I came off Arthur last year that I pushed my pelvis out of place so it is slightly misaligned. She asked if she minded her moving my leg in a circular motion when she did this to my right leg it moved really well when she did it to my left it was stiff and locked in place. Painful! So fiona has suggested that I go and see a chiropractor as that might help me to balance better and make my seat stronger as she says it's secure and it's good now but it could be better. 

That's all for now, no pictures as my dad took me riding.
Until Next Time
