    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!!
