The Katmah Experience

living and learning one day at a time.


Another work week finished. Finally.

I had a lesson with Charlene tonight. We worked on a two-stride exercise and oxer distances. Willard was a very good boy, and we did quite well. He’s getting so much better at using his hind end instead of just pulling me around with his face. It’s a nice change!

My hip/back feels a little off today. I’m hoping it’s just end of the week fatigue and nothing that’s going to last. However, this does feel familiar. So maybe not so good. Oh well, nothing I haven’t dealt with before. Just a little discouraging. I wonder if I’ll ever get rid of these injury. I guess we’ll just see how the next week goes. Next weekend is my first out door show of the year, The Victoria Day Show. 4 days at Birds Hill Park. My coaches agreed to let me try some lower level jumpers! Super pumped about that! Along with those two divisions I’ll be competing in my regular 3ft level hunters and flats. It’ll be a long weekend for sure, but a good test to see how my hip is going to handle the rest of the summer and how Willard is going to handle the outdoors. He’s usually good. Except when things like rain, bugs, sand… air.. touches his nose. Silly boy.  Mom and I invested in a little fly mask that attaches onto his bridle.. so maybe that’ll make a difference? I have my doubts, just cause I think it’s more of  a mental thing. But I guess we’ll see!

My working holiday visa application was approved yesterday. So I’m all set to go to NZ in 123, just need to finalize my flight! The one bonus of my job is that it gives me a lot of thinking time (sometimes this isn’t such a good thing haha), I can day dream about NZ for 8 hours a day. It’s quite relaxing sometimes. Until it gets tedious. But I’m not going to complain. It’s the best job I can get right now and it’s not half bad either. Definitely made it clear to me that I don’t want to be anything in the agriculture field. So at least we know that won’t cause confusion for me later on.

Anyway, I think I’m going to stop making sense soon if I keep typing, so exhausted. Bed time!
