Last year was entirely spent mentally figuring my self and my life out. It is when I came to the conclusion that I want to really try and pursue my equestrian dreams. I have had them suppressed for so many years, and it is time I take control of my own life. I have no one to hold accountable but me, and no one to blame my own happiness on than me. So here are my goals and aspirations:
HorsesFigure out Riesling's future- Will the pentosan injections keep him sound? Will we be able to ride first level tests?
Get my first level scores- Ideally this will be on Riesling, but also I have two backups. Even if I don't get above 60%, just going to the USDF shows and showing first level will be the accomplishment.
Do some schooling jump shows - Unfortunately this is more of a stretch goal. I have a ton of opportunities, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to make this a priority. I really want to get back into jumping though.
Ride at C's and J's three times a week - my poor gas tank hurts writing this one. Ideally I'd like to ride at each place 3 days a week, but if it just adds up to 3 days together that will be fine too. Just want to get all the riding in I can.
Ride Ries 4 days a week- In summer this basically means getting up when its still dark outside to ride before work. I am far from a morning person, but I need to utilize all my time if I want to make my dreams come true.
PersonalGet fit- I used to be moderately fit. I need to get back to that point in order to be a successful rider.
Eat healthier- This is imperative to a healthy mind, body, and soul
Be more organized in life- I hoard like nobody's business so this includes purging. Also includes being more organized with my time and working hard to better myself.
Excel in school - I can't let my horse education get in the way of my business degree.
Save $$ - I need to have a reasonable savings account piled up. It is time to start my life and being broke won't help.
Buy horse trailer- Now that I have the truck, the next item I need to further my equestrian ambitions is a horse trailer. I have an entire year to do this. The sooner the better but it is time to make this happen.
