I hope to show at 2'6" this summer and be schooling around 2'9" by the end of the year (personal goal because of my confidence).

I also hope to get Frazier to become more lively and to not buck while out cross country. And I hope to show a horse I ride (Terminator) in some lower shows cause she has soooo much potential!

And as for eq, I hope to improve my leg position over jumps. It kind stinks :d

My Goals:
  • Being able to improve my posture.
  • Going over fences (posture again)
  • Working on the little equation things, such as checking leads with out looking, along with diagonals.
My goals for Prince:
  • RESPECT! And Manners!
  • 7 Games (Parelli)
  • Working on control, he's a speed demon.
  • OVER FENCES! He is ugly, yet enthusiastic about it.
  • Doing more bareback, so far we can trot and 10" jump.
  • Train him in a Western Saddle
  • Show locally for hunter/jumper.
Goals for Savannah
  • Work on respect. We know our cues, and learning manners again.
  • Trotting! I know it's not fun for her, but maybe we can make it better.
  • NO MORE ACTING UP! No more bucking, bolting, or anything unacceptable.
  • Better at teaching kids.
  • Your headset! Mare, you can't pull your face out of my hands!
  • Show Local Hunters.
Show Goals:
  • Place better than 4th in every class
  • No disqualifying.
  • Having fun!
That's all, I think.

My goals for Odin this year are to really get him showing (since this will be his first time with that and I have been out of the show ring for years)
Start the year off with some nice intro dressage schooling shows. Proceed forward to being able to do some training 1 and 2 and also start out his eventing career with 1 or 2 elementary starter trials.

This year,
-I want to finally banish all those niggling nerves that threaten to destroy my ride when I'm jumping
-Score in the 20s in dressage at an event
-Finish on my dressage score more often than not
-Nail the balance issues my horse and I have to the right, which will come with being more in shape!
-Lose 15 pounds. I'm not overweight, but for the sake of athleticism, I could stand to lose that weight and replace it with muscle.

Major goal: Qualify for, and compete at, the AECs!!
