Horse Journal

How many of you keep a riding journal for your horse? What do you include in it. I try to keep something but then half the time I forget. My old instructor suggested it so I can see what I have been working on and stuff.

I never have before but my mom jsut recently told me to keep one for the mare I'm training. I'll keep the journal for myself and when the owner's end up finding a buyer me and my mom are gonna put a scrapbook together of all her training and shows, we'll get the owner to put baby pictures in and give it to the new owners. My mom says it'll be a cool thing to make as my trademark. Whenever I train a horse the owner will get a detailed account of it all, pictures included.

My trainer tells everyone in our barn to have a journal because it helps us learn. Something to do with imprinting. The more you right about what you do the more it sticks in your head. She says that if you write after every lesson that you will be able to learn so much more and get a ton of ribbons(:
So, yea I do have a journal

I have a journal, and for beginner horse owners at least, I really recommend it. It's honestly amazing to look back on two years of memories and watch yourself grow over the time. Stuff back then that absolutely floored me is now no sweat-it's so cool to see how much I've learned.
