Something I've been thinking about a lot lately are the goals I have, both long-term(2010 as a whole) and the more immediate ones.

2010 goals:

  • Successfully compete at Beginner Novice with Naughtie
  • Work to overcome my own fears and confidence issues ( I know this will be something I struggle with my entire life, but if I can honestly make progress I will be happy)
  • Get X out to a schooling show
  • Consistently be able to jump 3' courses
  • Move up to Novice by the end of the year
  • Become solid at First Level with Kaye
  • Work with Twinkie both on the flat and over fences
January/February Goals:
  • Work on my laterals, especially off my left leg
  • Start jumping again
  • Work to get Kaye cadenced at the canter
  • Work with Naughtie to get her supple through the back and to lighten her sides
I really think they are all within my reach this year. If I work hard, I can definitely achieve what I want to. It's just a matter of putting the work in.
