I've always been a big believer in goals. I firmly believe that writing you goal down is one of the best ways to achieve it. I've got life goals, 5 year goals, 1 year goals and now I'm delving into monthly goals. I want them to be achievable, measurable and I want to be accountable for them so I am going to track them here.
-Ride sidesaddle at least twice a week
-No stirrup work (or bareback) for at least 45 min a week
-At least one no pressure ride
-Complete an event with a number, even if it's K2 high (I've got two chances for this one)
-A jumping lesson (or show) without a single run-out or stop
-DON'T FALL OFF
-Make a concentrated effort to get fitter (so I don't run out of steam before the end of my course)
So there you have it, nothing earth shattering but important nonetheless.
