I PASSED THE FIRST PART OF MY BRONZE AWARD. and a little bit of suspense

Well today was my pony club evening and the week that we did the first part of the bronze award ( for those of you that do not know there are three parts). I was really excited but at the same time I was really nervous. I didn't know why I was nervous because it was all things that I am able to do my sleep. But we will come back to that later. 

I woke up this morning really early for me considering I'm on holidays for three months now! I watched Jeremy Kyle and just spent some time chilling I spent some time reading everyone's blogs and then curled up and watched some of the soaps that I enjoy that I had missed last week. It got to mid afternoon and I decided that I wanted something from Burger King,      I also offered to buy my brother some burger king to, as he'd spent all day in his room and I just thought it would be something nice to do. When we got home my dad was in from work so we took Angel for a quick walk up the hill and back, the heels quite steep so it gets your heart working fast! 

I then went to Pony Club, the things that we did were simple things like untie and tie the lead rope, take the head collar off the horse and put it back on, we then had to name the colours of the horses, we only had to do the simple names e.g. bright bay, dappled or flea bitten grey, we went round the horses on the yard saying what each horse was. I even remembered that Rosie is a Chestnut with a flaxen mane and tale, I don't know why I remember this but I always do. Odd! We then had to answer a few road safety questions e.g. which side of the road do you ride on, if your younger why is it best to always have an adult with you, things like that. We then got to spend some time grooming and have a break so Gatsby got lots of fuss and attention. The smaller kids went first and then the older ones second, so while the younger kids went, we mucked out Gatsby's stable. Then came the riding part of the test, for this you had to be able to check the girth and pull the stirrups done, make sure that they are the right length. Get on receiving a leg up (this was the thing that I struggled with the most but we had a laugh), walk in a straight line, stop, all in walk! It was easy but enjoyable, all though my stirrups were definitely too long!  I passed the first part of my bronze award and we took a group picture of everyone with their certificates standing by Big Rocky, I'm hoping to get a copy of that Photo soon too! Then when everyone had gone I was waiting to talk to Fiona so Elaine asked if I would mind helping her take Gatsby and Rascal out to their field! So of course I said yes ;) 

Tomorrow I'm getting a ride on Gatsby and having the first lesson with my new driving teacher. Wednesday I'm going to Blackpool with my mum and brother. Thursday I plan on sleeping.... a LOT! Friday I've got a day out with Dean and Sue. Saturday will be my weekly lesson and I have plans for Sunday but for now they're a surprise for you guys. 

Until Next Time
