2014 Goals

Here are our overall "Big Picture" goals for 2014. I will also be making some smaller quarterly goals (inspired by Tracy at Fly On Over), so stay tuned for those as well. I considered doing monthly goals instead of quarterly goals (nod to L at Viva Carlos), but I will be riding so infrequently over the winter that I thought it would be counterproductive. I may break the quarterly goals down to monthly goals in the summer to increase accountability and achievability, but who knows.

I would also like to declare these rolling goals, keeping in mind that current goals may be altered or new goals may be added before the end of the year.

  • ride more (which realistically is just "ride" given the past few years)
  • blog consistently (this is supposed to be a training journal, after all!)
  • get "riding fit"; get down to pre-thyroid weight
  • maintain GPA (first semester grades average to a 96%, and from what I can tell from the almighty Google, that's a 4.0)
  • harvest and maintain a positive outlook on life; take active strides to pursue and achieve all goals, big or small
See that grin? Gotta get back in the saddle!

  • hack on and off property
  • school training level/first level dressage movements; focusing on impulsion, forward movement, clean transitions, shortening and lengthening stride, dabbling in lateral movements, et cetera
  • school a full course; land on leads consistently
  • smooth simple changes
  • attend at least one show
  • attend hunter pace (I've been saying I would do this for the past two years!)


  1. Quarterly goals are a great idea! I didn't even think of that.

  2. I quarterly reviewed my goals before I ever did monthlies lol

    1. Haha, this does not surprise me in the least.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! I love hearing from fellow equestrians.
