    GREAT thread idea! ;)

    My short term goals are:
    -To finish training Shamrock (that may be more long term, hmm..)
    -To be able to canter and jump bareback correctly without falling off
    -To be able to show Shamrock

    My long term goals are:
    -To own a horse farm
    -To rescue and rehabilitate horses

    1) Re-learn how to jump. I knew when I was like... 9. Now I'm 22 and returning to riding.
    2) Do something competitive!
    3) Take some dressage-specific lessons.

    Right now I have just started lessons again. Smoothing over the basics is my most important goal. I have decided that instead of buying a horse right away, I want to make sure it means enough to me to sacrifice a good chunk of life, so I am starting with lessons, part-leasing, full-leasing, and THEN consider getting a horse.

    Right now, I really have World shows heavy on my mind.

    I don't think it's possible until I'm done with school (that's quite a ways away. I'm a professional student. ), and have a little more free time to work a 4-5 yo. And take it up to world level. My Paint gelding is almost 15 now, and just not the caliber of a show horse. Too impatient and hot. He could never handle the traveling and hours of waiting. For now I'm just content with showing at our local circuits, and some other small-ish Paint shows that are near.

    I would love to continue to work with different trainers, and just keep soaking in all I can. I've worked with some amazing clinicians, and had some very informative judges this past year, that have given me some great advice, as well as a confidence boost in my abilities and future with horses. I don't take that stuff lightly.
    Also, working and showing other peoples horses for them is something I've had the chance to do a couple of times, and I really love it. More of that would be amazing.

    My short-term goals:
    - To get out and spend one on one time with my boy (studying for my registration exam is taking away a lot of that time)
    - To get more hours in the saddle out on the trails
    - Teach my boy to neck rein (he gets the hang of it then this exam gets in the way...)
    - To learn to trim (wild horse model)

    My long-term goals:
    - To own at least a small yet functional facility to keep 2-4 horses. I love the benefits of boarding but I want to be able to look out my window and see my boy.

    Short term: *Lease Lucky
    *Progess to doing a jump COURSE, instead of a few jumps and ground poles in a straight line
    *Be able to canter horses consistently

    Long Term: *Own a horse
    *Possibly start a barn as a business :).

    Summed up I'd like to be successful, reputable, and financially comfortable doing what I love.

    Short term:
    Move out to work under an event trainer
    Gain parent's support for said after-graduation plan
    Be awesome at this Saturday's lesson ;)

    Long term:
    Catch ride, Compete, or groom at a 4* event
    BM/BO/Trainer for a top notch competitive barn
