Read the following paragraphs and match them up to the correct pictures:

  1. In the beginning, I was really anxious. I’d never been before, and I think that animals can sense it when you’re worried and nervous. It was OK when we were just walking, but then we started to canter. I thought I wouldn’t like it, but I was actually thrilled! The wind in my face, the ground moving quickly beneath me. It was great! When it finished, I felt extremely relieved, but I would definitely go again.
  2. He should never have started working on it. I think he was trying to impress me because it was our first date, but he told me later that it was the first time he’d tried to change one. He said that he didn’t want to mention it earlier because he didn’t want me to feel anxious or worried. At first I was fascinated to watch, because I’d never learnt how to do it either, but after two hours I started to feel a bit frustrated. I suggested that we call the repair company, but he told me that it was his car, which made me feel very awkward. In the end, I called a taxi. I got home at one o’clock and I was totally exhausted.
