Quarterly Goals: Summer 2018

Quarterly Goals: Summer 2018

════ SPRING WRAP UP ════

Get comfortable jumping 18″ 2’3″ felt easy, Raglan’s such a pro that 18″ isn’t scary at all.
Go to a schooling show The LWSC show was awesome, I wish I’d entered over fences classes!
Go for a trail ride Nobody to go with and Raglan won’t get into the Miley, soooooo…
Put weight on Raglan He’s definitely bulked up! I’m super happy with how he looks right now.


════ SUMMER GOALS ════

Ride Raglan outside more often

Take Raglan for a trail ride

Sell the Miley & pay off debts

Buy a new saddle that fits better

Practice ride a dressage test

Jump a full course of jumps

Quarterly Goals: Spring 2018

════ WINTER WRAP UP ════

Work on Raglan’s right lead It’s not 100% there, but the right lead is starting to happen!
Introduce more lateral work LOL NOPE. I probably should get on this at some point…
Incorporate more poles  I did more, but I need to get back into the habit of using them every ride.
Trailer out to new places SO MANY PLACES. EMR, SEC, and THF, plus the new barn (10M).
Start over cross rails  Easy peasy. We’re capping off winter with our first couple of 18″ jumps.

No big purchases, work on debt  Remember when I bought myself a horse trailer for Christmas?
Grow the blog audience  I’m getting more views (and more Insta followers!), but it wasn’t intentional.
Dedicate myself to writing a novel  I ended up doing the opposite and am on a writing hiatus.

════ 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
