  • 1. Lose more weight - going to WW and doing well at this moment.
  • 2. Log 600+ miles on the trail. Was off to a good start in January and the weather has held me up this month!
  • 3. Get more confidence to be able to ride in an endurance ride.
  • 4. Haul to a few new trails for overnight weekend trips.
  • 5. Work with my horse, Biscuit, to further his training.

My biggest priority atm is to find a place to move my horse that is closer to where I am living, and finish her up. She is a reliable mount but I wouldn't call her "well trained" and due to some saddle issues/unevenness in my body and landing on my head at the canter more than once, we haven't quite mastered that gait. I also need to take some weight off of her, which means riding more! Get 30 days on my gelding... just get 'er done, I guess!

This is a good idea, I think that I need to set goals for my self so that I have something to work towards!

* Be healthier- reduce junk food, exercise more, and loosing weight would be good but as long as I feel more energetic and have higher self esteem I think Ill be happy
* Trailer out to the LT to ride for the equivalence of once a week
* Ride 2/3 times a week at the house and work on trotting and cantering
* Focus on school and maintain a good GPA
* Don't stress out about work
I really just want to be more confident as a rider. I realize that my mare isn't getting the attention she needs, so it's no help to me when she is misbehaving...

1. not break any bones riding. In 2010 arm when horse rolled over backwards on me, and 2011, there was this girl......= two broke ribs.
2. related but not identical to the above, fall off less. Anybody ever fall off a horse that wasnt moving ?
3. Complete my first 50 mile AERC ride.
