This week was a very stressful, yet exciting week. Upon arrival at 10 am I was exteremly tired from the overnight flight that I was unable to sleep on. I was so impressed with how green everything is along with how big the horses truly were when I got to view the stables. I come from a western back ground where all im used to riding is quarter horses. These 17.1 hand horses are giants compared to my barrel horse at home. All of the girls are very outgoing and exteremly nice when we all finally got settled into the group. It seems that every morning it is rainy and cloudy, but around 3 pm the clouds clear and the sun decides to pop out for the rest of the day.

When first attending the classes I wasnt quite sure how much we would be covering since we are only here for a whole week. But when given the course outline I knew that it was going to be much more school work then what i had thought. Taking A&P and Fitness while I am here will be a great experience and show me a side of the horse world that I am not used too.

When coming to Oatridge Campus you are faced with Binny Craig. This is a giant hill, but very very big. So a few of us decided that we wanted to climb this hill.. which was much bigger and steeper than what we had expected. But the view is something that can not be missed. You are able to see the highlands and many of the lochs from that high up.

This week the students were celebrating their last week of the sememster. Each year the students celebrate with a Ceilidh. I would compare it to a homecoming dance or winter formal. We got all dressed up and went out on the town with all of the local students. It was a great time and the students were more then happy to show all of us girls a great time.

This weekends trip was to Edinburgh. It is about a 45 minute drive there, but was great to see upon arrival. The cities are so historical and lovely to get picutres of. Along with seeing Edinburgh on saturday, we went to Loch Ness which was a 3 hour drive. But along the way we got to see the highlands up close and take tons and tons of pictures.
