2013 Goal Updates

I figured since over half the year is gone (crazy!) I should review my 2013 goals. I was a little afraid to look since my grandpa being ill, loosing my job and moving had thrown me for a loop, but the mid-point results could be worse.

Myself
  • Be able to ride again - Riding again!
  • Be able to canter again - Cantered for first time outside in November 2012.
  • Canter again in arena 
  • Have health problems resolved
  • Graduate with my associates degree - Scratching this goal.
  • Transfer to Western Michigan University - Transferring now to Midway College in Kentucky. I'll be starting January 2014 if not sooner. I won't have an associates degree first but will get my bachelors.
  • Lose 50 lb - 15 lost so far!
  • Get a new car

The Horses
     Dakota
  • Improve headset through the trot
  • "Perfect" headset at walk
  • Work on lateral movements at walk and trot
  • Begin canter work
  • Compete in a sanctioned dressage show

     Woven Web
  • Have solid ground manners - As good as they're going to get I think :)
  • Introduce bit / bridle - Achieved!
  • Introduce saddle - Achieved!
  • Begin riding Woven Web - First ride on 2/8/13.
  • Get 30 days of solid work on her
  • Get 60 days of solid work
  • Get 90 days of solid work
  • Present to AHHA for breeding inspection - Scratch this. Going to re-evaluate what I want to present her as.

Miscellaneous
  • Get my Courbette Husar Touring XL Dressage Saddle Re-Flocked
  • Finish USEF registration
  • Finish USDF registration
  • Go to Rolex Kentucky - Didn't happen, next year! This year though will be replaced with many hunter derby's and the National Horse Show.

  1. Great work on achieveing your goals!
    I'm going to have to have a proper think about what goals i'm going to want to achieve with my girls, set them and try to work towards them. Although so far I am surpassing my expectations of one of my 2013 goals - Having fun!
    I have been having an absolute blast so far this year...long may it continue!
