2014 Goals update

Here's my list of 2014 goals

  1. Post the trot for 5 minutes, walk break, post for 5 more minutes
  2. Reliable left to right flying change
  3. School a course of all 2’6” jumps
    • Show locally, hunters 2’6”
  4. Jump 24” bareback
    • Jump 24” bareback (with pad) and bridle-less, neck rope ok
  5. Weigh-in at 155 pounds

Where am I at?

1. Haven't really been working on this at all. Mostly because it's the most boring thing ever, but I really should get on it since I'd like to ultimately 2point for 5 mins straight. 

2. ACCOMPLISHED!! YES! So excited!

3. I have actually jumped 2'6" but only a single. I've been busy working on other areas the last few months, so next week I'll start stringing some together. I haven't shown this year and we'll see how the schooling goes before I consider showing in Aug or October.

4. ACCOMPLISHED!! Not only have I jumped 25", but I've also now done it bareback and bridle-less - in just a rope halter/lead. Last week I also jumped in just a neck rope and no bareback pad, but only like 18" - Sam was slippery ;)

5. Yeah... in the last two months I've put back on 1/2 the weight I lost since October time. :/ Drastic changes must occur as it is still viable for me to lose 35lbs in 5 months. Heck, I'd feel accomplished at 20lbs lighter. Must get motivated!

  1. Way to go! I am with you on the weightloss goal. I really need to lose at least 15 pounds but it just seems to be two steps forward, three steps back as far as that goes. Perhaps we can cheer each other on from afar!
