Map of a Driving Lesson

amywink February 26th, 2011

I put my GPS in my pocket for my lesson yesterday afternoon and this is what I found when I got home:

You can’t seem my nice neat circles, or straight lines, or diagonals….so take my word for it, we were perfect. haha!

Well, maybe not perfect, but I did do better than I had been doing. Now I must work on smoothing out my hand in the turns, making my changed more fluidly. Today, I will work with Will some more and I will try again with the GPS.

Last week, I did manage to set up some circles in the dressage arena and remember to hit the “lap” button when I wanted to see what I had done.

And I did get some good shots of what we need to work on.

Here we have a pretty good diagonal pattern

And a mediocre 20m circle–maybe something’s out of whack on the actual markers….

Yes, I think definitely I need to check those distances on that circle…..or is it an egg?

But I did get nice straight lines. . . an another egg

But good diagonals even by Lap 8

At least the I could tell what was what after the entire outing:

We’ll see if I can do better this afternoon.
