Everybody has to have a goal to work towards, right? Ok, here's mine.
Jack spent 60days with a trainer last summer, whom didn't do nearly enought with him. So right now, I am working on filling in holes in ground work & desentising. As well as taking lessons myself, my instructor is giving me weakly goals to work with Jack ( right now on hold due to my injury). Over the late winter/ early spring I am going to bring Jack to her barn for 3-4 months of training. I told her I want a confednet, relaxed trail horse with really good brakes! She said SHOULD be no problem.
My "goal" is this. A really good friend lives 7 miles up the road from my barn. By next summer, I want to be able to ride to her house! Depending on how we both handle the trip, I will either leave him there for the night & ride back the next day or trailer him home.
My family thinks I'm nuts, but I really want to make this happen!
