    Robbie :
    -- get him back on a consitent program
    -- get him jumping at least 3'3 courses
    -- work on his transitions
    -- work on his balance
    -- circles, circles, circles!

    Me :
    -- position
    -- toes forward hehe
    -- keeping my eyes up and off Robbie. XD
    -- my position through tight turns and over the bigger jumps
    -- not being scared to jump over 3'3

    Ah... they don't really change over the winter.

    - lunge in side reins 3 times a week
    - more basic work
    - get him more consistent overall
    - no more temper tantrums when I ask him to transition down from the canter
    - work more on his whoa, get an immediate response instead of 3-4 steps later...
    - did I mention get consistent?

    - ride more
    - work on being more consistent myself :P
    - pick up my hands! Never used to do this, newly formed bad habit
    - more two-point on the flat work
    - solidify my lower leg over fences

    There's probably more, ha ha.

    Find majic solution to Uveitis!(PM me if you have any sujestions. Theyre greatly appreciated.)
    Try to convince Trooper that cantering through snow isnt as exciting as he thinks so that I can actually controll him.

    Do everything I can to prepare for my first show season on the show team.
    -get used to new pony (instructor switching me again. Apparently this pony can jump higher)
    -perfect position

    -Lots of gymnastics work
    -Complete a full training level dressage test
    -Get her jumping crossrail lines at the Canter
    -Teach her to round and collect herself

    -Teach him to stand still to be mounted
    -Work on lots of gymnastics under saddle and free lunging
    -Get him to relax and trust people
    -Teach him to stand quiet on the crossties

    -Teach him that he's not a western pleasure horse anymore (he was a 2nd level dressage horse until Joann bought him for her nephew to do western pleasure on, and now he thinks he's supposed to plod around instead of using his body)
    -Get him collected and moving off my leg instead of sucking back and acting like a bratty lesson horse
    -Start schooling over gymnastics and eventually over some low lines

    -Start doing some dressage work
    -Lots of trails (when the weathers good)

    -Let him be a pasture puff
    -Start working him back slowly when the ground thaws
    -Teach him to be a driving pony

    -Find a nice used dressage saddle
    -Work on getting my but back over fences
    -Work on not letting my self get into a hunt seat when practicing dressage

    Well I will be busy getting some surgery done and out of the way so my main focus is going to become unbroken.

    As for Bentley, we are going to be doing a lot of groundwork, get him ready to be started under saddle and start him. Hopefully have some solid walk, trot canter work done by the summer.

    >>With LÝza I would like to work on obedience and respect mainly. Also on some muscles, but we will mainly have to wait till spring...
    >>I personally would really like to win a lottery, take part in some clinicques, take some good lessons od good horses, get some advices from more experienced people and maybe get someone to help me with Lisa, 'cause I am really not the best man to work with her, but unfortunately the only one for her now.... Spent all time I can with Lisa, developing our relation, play with her, have fun, teach her... <3
