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

    Zu
    - 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?

    Me
    - 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.

    Umm.
    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

    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.

    >>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
