Sultan’s Miracle Man/Sam
30 Academy Showmanship WTC Adult, 2 of 2
31 Academy Equitation WTC Adult, 1 of 2
Thank you to Courtney Huguley for Super Sam.

Between Milton’s warm-up and classes [Victory!], I reverted to saddle seat.

First Class
Stellar show last time [Show Report]. Lovely lesson the week before. Felt invincible. No one is invincible. We took second. Pffffft. Good thing I don’t take these small shows too seriously (… looks at keyboard … searches for sarcasm emoji …).

Second Class
From the sidelines, Coach Courtney told me to go faster. We picked up the pace. We won. I keep forgetting that saddle seat is not a pastoral lilt. It is a Sousa march played by a New Orleans jazz band.

Thank you for reading,
Katherine Walcott

  1. …. “a Souza march played by a New Orleans jazz band” … perfect definition of saddle seat…. I marched in band in high school, which is probably why this definition hit home with me …
