Your Goals for 2011?

What would you like to do in the new year? More showing? Have more fun? Get new saddle? Anything is allowed even if its not horse related!

I will go first. I will be honest 2010 was not my year for the most part so I am looking forward to laying down some clean slate.

-I want to get lessons to put an end to Champs bucking problem
-get cutting lessons
-show more!
-lose 10 pounds and keep it off
-take Champ to the lake
-Learn how ride english with a good instructor
Sounds do-able right?
Your turn!

Live to ride. Ride to live.

well, I have a lot for Mac and I!

-get Mac out on some group rides
-make some improvement in her lack of brakes and head-shyness
-complete a CTR together
-take some lessons
-buy a house where I can bring Mac home eventually!

A horse is the projection of peoples' views about themselves--strong, powerful, beautiful--and it has the capability of giving us escape from our mundane existance.

Cool thread!


2010 was a very bad year for me so in 2011 I just want to reinvent myself. I will be moving across the world on Jan 16th and starting fresh. I want to:

-Lose 15-20 lbs.
-Get back into kick boxing.
-Save money every week for the internship in Sri Lanka.
-Perform my first burlesque routine.
-Develop a very positive outlook and try anything new. Meet people, get outside and get active.
- It'd be pretty cool if I wasn't single anymore too :P

Also, my big goal for 2011 is to ride and complete this:

Like other people 2010 just wasn't my year. I did show and I did well but I had a lot of problems with people I know, friendships destroyed and betrayal and stuff. 2011 is a new year and I got some goals.

-> Keep my 2 friends Karly and Keisha close, I want no problems this coming year.
-> Compete in Jumper and 3-Day Event shows with Regena
-> Get Regena sold
-> Buy myself a 4 year old WB or TB prospect with at least 10-20 days on already.
-> Get up to Level 6 and strive for Level 7 {Equine Canada Rider Levels}
-> Show, show show.
-> Get abs or at least a flat stomach, mine sickens me.

I want to ride Gold Coast and then Las Amigas next year, and not only make it around the courses, but actually place in the ribbons!
Lots of training. We have a long road ahead of us. Haha!

Hmmm, I had to think about this. I'm keeping it animal related.

I'd like to:
Get a solid canter from cookie, both directions, with good bend.

Get her to consistently keep herself round and moving from her hind end instead of being so hallow.

Start her over some fences

Do trail riding with her!

Get the last CDX leg on one of my dogs

Get a CD on a friends Borzoi, and one on my own puppy.

My goals for 2011

---> Ride Shocking more, get our bond back. I miss him.
---> Get an 83 average overall.
---> Lose 5 pounds.
---> Save my money for University
---> Finish up Shocking's rough lead changes, improve lateral, and courses.

My horse is the reason I wake up in the morning.
