The Katmah Experience

living and learning one day at a time.


Past two rides, pain free! First time in at least a month, more like two or three that I haven’t been dealing with pain while training. All I’ve got right now is a little soreness, which is easily cured with some ice and stretching. Much different from what I felt before.

I’m trying not to get my hopes up too much, as it has only been 5 days since my last AT session. So the next few weeks will be the real test. It’s definitely much better then normal though.

   Saturday’s clinic was probably one of the best ride’s I’ve had in a long time. Willard was awesome, and my riding showed a lot of improvement. I think the saddle I’m trying out helps a lot. It makes for a completely different ride from my current saddle (which I will be selling, so if anyone wants a size 17.5 exselle debut medium tree let me know).

I beat my average in running by 2 seconds again today, so this is the second week in a row I’ve improved by 2 seconds. This surprised me because I didn’t do much at all last week because my back was acting up. Working out and running felt good today. I’m glad to be busy again. Hopefully I can keep this up!

It looks like I’m booking tickets for NZ for the 14th of September. I’ll be leaving from Vancouver and taking a direct flight to Auckland. So the countdown is on, 127 days!!!!!!

  1. I’m trying a few Mondega saddles and if they don’t fit, I’d love to try your Exselle. I know those Crosby saddles were awesome for hard-to-fit horses. Are Exselles the same?

    1. It seems like it’d be a pretty good fit for a variety of horses, and you’re welcome to try it out! I have another person who is interested, but I haven’t heard from them in a few days. So just let me know if you want to try it!
