════ 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
