In five years, since my horse is 4, I can see him going with me to congress. Altho, he just broke his leg, so that sets me back a bit, but he's training with Harvey Stevens. So, perchance he will be in congress

In 5 years, I hope to have brought Scout to the level of a been-there-done-that all around horse. Handy on trails, and educated in the arena. I'd ideally like to be schooling him on second level dressage movements by then, but I know he won't be competitive at that level even if we did have an opportunity to show, and of course the timetable is always his call.

in 5 years my big guy will be just 21. *sigh* i'd like to think we'll still be schooling dressage for fun and riding out on the trails. Maybe a LD ride or two.

My little guy will be almost 6! So at that point i'd think he'll have been under saddle for 2.5 years (give or take) - so all the basics done with a nice sound mind and well rounded beginning education (arena, trails, etc.).

Hmm..she'll be....almost 13. AH! That makes her sound so much older. She seems so young now being almost 8.

In 5 years, I would love to see Abby has a finished barrel horse. Maybe even successful! But the second part is more of a pipe dream.

I would rather her just be a been there, done that trail horse. If I did manage to get her trained for a sport, that'd be a bonus. Reining would be fun. But really, as of right now, I don't show or compete and I mainly bought her to be a trail horse, which is all she has been used for during her life.

Sorry to change topic but I had to say that Citrus looks a lot like my friends Arab Java. I almost traded Hunter for him a few months ago, he has such a cute face. So glad I didn't though. He was really skinny here as my friend had just picked him up from someone she sold him to who didn't pay her and didn't look after the horse. Poor little guy

Oh and in 5 years Hunter will be 8 and hopefully an inch or so taller. We may do some low level shows with him, but I just want a reliable fun trail horse

Hmm, I don't really know how much more I could progress with Dobe's training in the next 5 years other than just getting him more solid on his leads and his departure on the left lead. He starts out a little fast there. He's already a finished ranch horse and I can do anything on him. Maybe I'll take up team roping, though I'll need more training for that than he will.

As for Rafe, he'll be almost 7 in 5 years so I hope by that time he is about where Dobe is now (only better about his leads and such). But I want to rope off him, drag cattle, trail ride, carry flags in the parade, and pretty much anything else I decide.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

They do have similar faces- I am a sucker for bays and absolutely love Citurs' question mark/blaze thingy..... Java must be his Arbian twin.... he also has a paint twin on here :)

In 5 years, I want my mare to be even more solid in everything I have retrained her to do; which means to be even more solid on the trails (which she is already pretty impeccable there). I want her to get better at leg cues, and become more relaxed in everything I do with her. I hope to do some light showing with her, but nothing super competitive, as it's just not my thing...I prefer those local, down to earth shows...the big scene is just that...too big, and too much money for my pocket book! Haha.

She has already come a long ways in the year I have owned her...she was really flighty, and inconfident, and couldn't be ridden at all; so I'd say we are already well on the way to that 5 yr goal...more likely it won't even take 5 yrs to accomplish those things.
