October Goals

Where did the year go?! Seriously, how is it OCTOBER? In one way, I’m glad for September to be over. Although it was a great month over all, on the horse front it was a little less than stellar. However, Gus is good to go now and we had our first ride today. YAY!

September Goals

Gus’ Goals:
1. Work on getting canter departs quiet – Nope
2. One trail a week –
Nope
3. Work on rhythm and suppleness in all aspects of our riding –
Nope
4. Do more poles and start grid and gymnastic exercises –
Nope
5. Lunge on a hill to build up stifle muscles – Nope

My Goals:
1. Find a job! – FOUND ONE! Yay for adulating. 
2. Work on being more quiet with my leg and more forgiving with my elbows, maybe lower my stirrups one more hole for flat work – No riding, so nope.
