A fab ride on Gatsby

Today has been another good but long day, I still didn't sleep well but I've been busy all day today so I am hoping that I will sleep better (although I do have an early start tomorrow). This morning I woke up and just watched tv and did some reading as I hadn't got any plans for the morning. 

This afternoon was busy but fun. I had my first driving lesson with my new driving teacher and it went really well! He asked me what I knew how to do and I told him the things that I knew. We then started driving and he said that he wanted to do assess my driving. We had been driving for a little while and he said that what we were doing was too easy for me so we moved on to doing hill starts and things like that. It went really well, and he said that I can do my test soon, and I should only need 10 lessons. Then I can drive by myself and tomorrow I will be hearing more about how my car is doing, hopefully I will get it back towards the end of the week! 

After this I went up for my ride on Gatsby it was great, I loved it. I spent a while grooming him and making him all shiny. The main thing that I wanted to work on was maintaining an outline in walk, and while doing transitions. I started off warming up and getting him to stretch and he was being annoyed by the flies so Elaine put some fly gel stuff in his ears and after that we could really do some work. When I picked up the contact he went in to a nice outline, he was soft and I felt like I had just got the elastic contact. When we moved on to the trot it was nice but a little bit lazy so we did lots of transitions, to get him thinking and more active. I then asked him to lengthen his stride and I think that I lifted my hands a little but to much because he moved into canter and he cantered in an outline! I couldn't believe it, it was only a few strides but it was there and that was the best part! I asked him to canter a few more times but we couldn't get the canter outline again! I then spent a few more times trotting. I then put him on a long rein and walked him around a few more times to cool down. He felt really good and I loved this. When I got off him I then gave him a quick brush over where his saddle and girth were as he had got quite sweaty. I also used a face brush to go over where his bridle was. 

This evening I went to a BBQ that was run by my youth group. It was good but there wasn't that many people there that I knew so I didn't stay to late. Tomorrow I have an early start as at 7 we are leaving to go to Blackpool.

Until Next Time
