-see if i can save up money over spring break for more training/lessons

Mine's not overly horsey at this stage. Horses are a little on the backburner because i'm so busy with other aspects of life at present.

- Get my uni timetables completed and printed
- Buy new text books
- Complete my current commission drawing and get started on the next before the end of the week (I have a whopping 13 commissions on the waiting list at the moment :S)
- Put away some more money to put towards a house deposit
- Get my room and study organised for uni starting again. I also need a better system of storing my completed and in progress works while i await payment so need to get some sort of shelving underway
- Go through all my horse gear and work out what I can sell (I have far too much and most i KNOW I won't need)
- Check over the paddock fences again, my usual routine after one horse has left and I start the hunt for another
- Find my boyfriend a birthday present :O

Horse wise:
-solidifying/tweaking the canter gait
-continue to break in the jumping saddle on the flat to prepare for jumping this summer
-start jumping this summer
-desensitize him to trails and dressage show arenas
-sharpen transitions
-get a more supple and controlled gait with more consistent contact
-better groundwork manners, be more relaxed and quiet in hand
-clinic with Henrik and preparation for the clinic in March (more clinics to follow most likely)
-getting used to a bareback pad
-possibly a few small schooling shows, some I will go to only for exposure and not to compete
-horse should master Training Level by end of the year and be starting First (if things go according to plan)
-horse is a happy work partner and healthy, satisfied with his routine
