Quarterly Goals: Winter 2017

Quarterly Goals: Winter 2017

════ AUTUMN WRAP UP ════

Get Raglan sound again  This was touch and go, but it did get done. Shoes with pads = sound pony!
Take Raglan to his first show The November Eagle Mountain Schooling Show was a success 😀
Bring Raglan to the SEC for a lesson Didn’t end up happening, but hopefully sometime soon.
Establish Raglan’s canter Cantered Rags for the first time on October 27th! It was 100% awesome.

Take Ezhno for a trail ride It’s hard to make fun plans when you rely on others for transport. 😢
Work on slowing Ezhno’s canter  Ezhno’s canter has made major improvements in the past few months.
Improve Ezhno’s lateral movements I didn’t work on this as much as I should’ve, but they did improve!

Put a brake box in the truck Mostly in! I should probably screw the mounting bracket into the dash. 😅
Learn how to drive a trailer TrainerA’s schedule is hectic and we didn’t get around to coordinating this.
Buy my own jumping saddle  Finally bit the bullet and bought a lovely 2009 Devoucoux Biarritz!


════ GOALS FOR RAGLAN ════

Develop his ability to consistently pick up the right lead under saddle

Introduce lateral work (baby leg yield, turn on haunch/forehand, etc.)

Incorporate more poles (trot poles, canter poles, half-raised cavaletti, etc.)

Find more opportunities to trailer him out to new places

Start over cross rail courses towards the end of winter


════ GOALS FOR ME ════

No big purchases, pay off some of my credit card debt

Grow the blog (use Instagram, write posts for other sites, etc.)

Dedicate myself to starting and then finishing a novel
