Well, I just got Jazz on lease on the 18th, and I have him for a year! (With the possibility of a second!)

-Work on improving his canter transitions (they need to be more prompt).
-Work on consistently having square halts.
-Achieve a softer right bend (he is a little resistant in that direction).
-Achieve show-ready leg yields.
-Begin teaching him shoulder-in & haunches-in.
-Begin extended work.

-Ride all gaits without stirrups once a week
-Improve symmetry
-Square shoulders
-Relax back (I have a tendency to be hollow)

All of this is to...
Score well in Training level dressage tests come spring, and be ready to show First Level in the summer.

-work on using his back
-get him to use his hind end more, instead of pulling himself along :)
-work on his form over jumps- get him square!
-get him ready for equitation and hunters next summer

-walk/trot/canter/jump no stirrups without contorting my body :)
-get trail-certified
-jump 3'
-improve my equitation
-perfect my half-seat so I can have it in my 'toolbox' to use
