I have quite a few.
My more serious goals:
-I'd like to take one I've raised & trained myself to a world title. I've won a futurity, a handful of all-arounds, now I'd like to see a world bronze in my case. My intent is to do so with my weanling colt.
-Compete in open freestyle reining at Congress, make top 10.
-take the farm my grandfather started in the 50s to a level of success it hasn't seen since I was younger and showing heavily. Like Maura, college, marriage, career, starting a family put a halt to that. I'm now back to horses full time and working hard at it.
-The ultimate goal is to have the farm be successful enough to hand it over to my daughter as a future if horses is the career path she chooses and continue my grandfather's legacy for generations to come.
My fun goals
-Compete in cross country with my new to me warmblood. I grew up on reiners & working cow horses but did ride hunt seat & jump. Growing up in a family that raised QH's, cross country wasn't something that was an opportunity for me when I was younger. Now that I'm in charge of my horse life, it's something I'd really like to do for fun.
-When I retire, I want to RV retire and travel wherever the road leads me.
Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
