    What are your goals/ What are you working on this winter!

    Ok, so, for most people it is off season(THANK GOD!) and are going into hibernation! Lol! So what are your plans and what are you hopping to achive this winter?

    For me it is-
    • Get Blue back in competition condition and get her jumping again. I want to take her to some jumper shows in the spring and see how she likes it.
    • Get and break in a new jumping saddle.
    • Keep Geof in good condition, and work on his topline.
    • Try Jim Wafford's advice on getting a horse in shape for a Classic. I'm not doing one, but I would like to improve Geof's condition!
    • Get Geof to work off my leg better.
    • Get solid in my lower leg over jumps.
    • Jump a sweedish oxer!
    • Get Airess to stand in the Cross Ties and get her to accept tack(more long term.)
    • Improve my dressage! In every aspect!
    • Work Blue more with the Parelli.
    • Become a better horsewomen all around!
    So share!

    • Get her back in summer shape
    • Get lessons on her with another trainer and my current trainer
    • get her to stop flipping out when she jumps
    • go to some baby hunter shows and see how she does

    • Do more hacks... A LOT of hacks
    • get her jumping again, when the ground isn't frozen solid (no indoor, just grass)
    • actively look for a new home for her. I'm going to college and we just don't get along.

    For myself get healthy and figure out what's causing me to faint. Once that's sorted I want to get Hula Girl started under saddle, Cougar's transitions smoother and Greylite kept in decent shape so she doesn't get so stiff.
