Gatsby says, ‘I haven’t got a horse,’ said Gatsby. ‘I used to ride in the army but I’ve never bought a horse. I’ll have to follow you in my car. Excuse me for just a minute.’ This tells us that Gatsby does not ascribe to the same social mores of the East Egg elite. He finds horse riding crude instead of fashionable and a status symbol.
