Today, thousands of people are resolving to lose weight, exercise more, quit a bad habit for good, and manage their finances better. These are all noble goals, but horse people have different resolutions as they look into the new year.
In November, I moved my 24-year-old horse down to college with me, so in 2013 I resolve to ride more, keep Red healthy and spend more time at the barn!
I resolve to get through [my horse’s] ulcer issues and I will get to ride both my horses and be confident that they aren’t in pain!
I am determined to start riding both my mares in elementary dressage. They are both older and not able to jump anymore, and I have always wanted to relearn the correct way to ride.
I definitely want to spend more time ON my horse in 2013! And I hope my little niece gets to spend more time on her pony as well.
[I resolve] to get back in the saddle.
I am planning to start my colt this year, and then show him in the Holiday Classic a year from now.
I plan on doing a repeat of last year: Ride, ride, ride. But this year, I want to learn more about riding gaited horses. I want to gain more knowledge, plus have fun! Also, I am going to participate in a despooking class. Sounds like a great year to me!
Feathers and I are going to learn mounted shooting, and Blondie will celebrate her 31st birthday!
