Externship has Started!
Hello Dear Reader,
First and foremost thank you for taking the time to read this blog! I hope you might find something in my ramblings and such that might be slightly educational, inspiring, and or empowering. If not, I am sorry for the bother and maybe if you try back again later I might have something new on here that maybe, just maybe might be the difference that makes the difference!
So onward to all of the juicy details.....
Yesterday was Externship check-in from 8:30am to 11:30am and orientation was 12pm to 1pm. Of course I was there really early and had a bunch of time to fill later on. It just happened to work out that Cash, one of Pat's mares had a baby early that morning. So I took the opportunity and spent a few hours watching Kalley Krickeberg imprint the little colt! It was so amazing to be a part of the whole experience with all of the Interns and Apprentices!! In the early afternoon we got a tour of Pat's Performance Barn and Foundation Station. It was a great tour hosted by the lovely Marion Oesch, she answered a plethora of questions - mostly from me! We had a few mundane things in the late afternoon mostly logistics and such. Oh I almost forgot, we also got some info related to our theory test on Driving. Then today we played some team building exercises in the morning and had a introduction to harnessing a team of driving horses as well as our first try at the theory test which I think I did quite well on. After lunch we had our online testing! It was loads of fun! This Extern group promises to be a great one with the potential to have a lot of fun as we move forward in our journey towards being horsemen and women!
Until next time Stay Savvy and Keep it Natural!
Kailaan and Jack
