I dont have any resolutions so to speak, but really looking forward to enjoying my horse this year! The past few years running the boarding farm, Ive put my horse on the back burner and literally had to schedule when I was riding a month in advance, so Im really looking forward to riding whenever I can. Also have a lot of work cut out for me with the start of getting my daughter's colt into a future children's pony lol.

I want to continue to get my horse area fixed up and perfectly working
I want to get Candie started under saddle.
I think those are two good things to focus on this year!

I am hoping to go on more trails in 2019. Now that I have my own trailer, I can go whenever but the weather has been crappy lately, so the footing hasn't been so good.

Continue the consistency as well. I try to work Promise at least 5-6 days a week.

I am also going to take more lessons. There's a really good trainer I am going to in March, that I will be going to once every few months (she is only in the area 1x a month but she's expensive lol). She focuses on balance, and the bio-mechanics of the horse. More scientific. She's really good.

So that'll give us more stuff to work on. She is great with OTTB's especially ones that have had injuries. So I'm excited.

I'll also be taking lessons with my current trainer once a month.

#1 - an injury free year for horse(s) and myself.

Continue Fancy's training towards being a 100 mile endurance horse.

Turn a project horse into a nice trail horse.

Build a new hay shed.

Save money up for a new trailer.

My horsey goal this year it to get automatic waterers in my horse runs and in our cow pasture. This will not only save me time and money in the winter but it will save me from having to worry about water if I am gone for more than a day or so.

My riding goal is to ride more. 2018 was a horrible year for riding and I hope to make at least 400 miles riding in 2019. With my DH in college a lot of that riding will be done solo.

My only goal this year is to find another outlet for my horse habit, since I cut ties with my toxic situation. The facility that was close to me, which I had intended to start going to, just moved further away than I can feasible go. So.. I'm back to square one.

Don't judge someone's horse or skill because they don't compete or work with a trainer.

Sometimes they're the most in tune with each other.

This past year seemed to zip by and I really didn't get to do too much with the horses.

My resolution for 2019, which I've been seeing is a very common one, is to ride more! The girls have been sitting for probably a little over a year now so they are both going to need to take quite a few refreshment courses and I'm going to need to get back into riding shape.

I'd also LOVE to do some trails this year and count my miles.

I'd like to ride my paso more while he's still ridable--he'll be 26 in May. Also looking forward to more time with my new mountain horse--on the ground and in the saddle. :)
