Happy New Year everyone! It’s still so weird for me to be writing 2014 instead of 2013 but the world just keeps turning. I’ve never been one for resolutions but here are a handful of goals for me this year.
Goal 1- Be schooling first level dressage work by the end of the year and show at least once at training level while getting a score in the 60%.
Goal 2 – Continue to work on my equitation over jumps. Ideally I’d like to be able to do a 2’6″ course again and hopefully compete at some of the local shows. I would also like to be schooling 3′ again.
Goal 3 – Complete a horse trial with a number and not a letter, schooling or recognized.
Goal 4 – Tone up! I know I’ve been saying I’m going to do this forever (and it’s more of a resolution than a goal…) but 2014 is the year. In the past I’ve learned that I can’t just make big changes so I’m going to start to weave in better health and lifestyle choices throughout the year.
Goal 5 – Make a decision on Dandy and be okay with the possibility that this may end in selling him. This sport is too much work, too dangerous and costs too much to not have fun. I’m still having fun but if we can’t get Dandy in the right frame of mind than that could quickly change. I’m willing to give him more time if that is what it will take but I do need to make that decision this year.
