Well this morning my PlayBook came I was really excited and asked my mum to wake my up when it came even if that's at 8:30 this morning. I set it up even though my mum had to help me with setting up my Emails because it wanted to know all the advanced settings that I didn't know. 

Then it was time to go and ride Gatsby he was abit of a pain when it came to grooming him as he has issues with people touching his ears so he kept putting his head really high. When he was eventually clean I tacked him up and it was time to get on him. When I got one him the sun was shining and it turned out to be the perfect weather it wasn't too hot and it wasn't too cold. It was just right. Only down side was that there were millions of flies, and they were driving Gatsby and Rosie mad. I quickly sorted my girth and stirrups nd moved on to warming him up. Fiona said that we were going to carry on working with the canter and then maybe move on to working on the sitting trot but doing it without stirrups the thought made me nervous but it's been something that I've been wanting to do recently. Unfortunately I never got round To working without stirrups so that will be something that I will work on later in the week. Jaimieleigj was riding rosie to start with but the flies were effecting her that badly that she switched on to using Rocky to start with she was really nervous but she did settle in to him. We moved on to going over three trot poles in rising trot then the minute we had gone over the last pole asking for canter catering a 20 metre circle then repeating we would do this three or four times on each rein. We did this for half a lesson and then moved on to doing something different. 

We then worked on, 'riding the rail' it was similar to riding western. First of all your moved on to trotting either sitting or rising when we had got a steady rhythm we then started really using a long rein, almost holding on to the buckle on the reins. The aim was to continue riding in a nice rhythm not speeding up or slowing down. Gatsby and I found this fairly easy as I knew he wasn't going to do anything. After spending 10 minutes riding like this I moved on to doing some leg yielding to make a change from doing the canter work. He was really well and we got some nice soft and smooth leg yields. We then walked around on a long rein to cool down. After that Gatsby was being used for another lesson so I helped the girl get on him and then returned home.  

Mum got some good videos on my PlayBook so I will put them in a post of their own. When I got in my mum and I went to clean dads car. Then it was time for the grand national every year for as long as I can remember my mum puts a bet on for everyone in the house (we pick our own horses). Well this year my mum put a £1 bet on and she managed to win £84.50 the horse she had bet on had odds of 66/1 so you can imagine the look on our faces when mums horse won! 

I think that's all for now so I'll leave you with a picture of Gatsby from today. By the way excuse any bad spelling this post was done on my PlayBook 

Until next time
