Goals 2016


I had a lot of goals last year and I pretty much didn't make any of them. Let that be a lesson in never setting goals again.

This I did. I have been a board member for almost a full year now and am loving the sport, the Club I belong to and the people I get to meet and ride with. It has been a great year for WE, with consolidated rules and a year of shows under our belt. I expect 2017 to be fantastic! This was a win!

2. Clinics/Shows
I did clinics and shows at Expo, but had to scratch from the show due to a slight irregularity in Ashke's gait. I rode in the Rebecca Algar clinic but not in the show due to Ashke's injury in his left hind. I rode in the clinic and show with Tarrin Warren in July and won. Then spent the rest of the year waiting for Ashke's reinjury to heal. Not exactly a win, but not really a fail either.

3. Riding Four Days a Week
This I have been fairly consistent on. Sometimes, due to weather or other events, it's been three times a week. We do a consistent two arena rides and two trails rides. I call it a win.

4. Develop Canter
Definite win.

5. NATRC Ride
Fail. Didn't have our slide in camper yet. Probably not going to make my list for 2017, either.

6. First LD
Fail. See above.

7. 500 Miles on Trail
Fail. I have done 327 so far in 2017, so not shabby. But not the goal.

Never drink soda again. FAIL.
Nothing else to say about that.


  1. They are now saying that sugar is the # 1 problem for all of us, not fat consumption. If we eat or drink more than 6 tablespoons a day then we will not be so healthy. For me I drink two cups of coffee a day in the morning and afternoon and I put about a tablespoon of sugar and 1/2 tablespoon of honey in that. Then it is watching the hidden sugar that is in everything from bread to salad dressing to baked beans. I have tried to give up sugar but I feel terrible if I do.

  2. It is hard to not drink soda, I pretty much don't drink it anymore, but every now and again nothing tastes quite as good lol
