March Evaluation & April Goals

March Evaluation:

  • Keep working on those “expressive” lead changes without overdoing it– They keep getting better and better.
  • Add more no-stirrup work to my riding. – Thank you Regional prep.
  • Work those poles! – Honestly, I did NO pole work this month. None. And I have no excuses.
  • Get out of my comfort zone and let go. – I tried…does that count?
  • Qualify for Regional Finals over fences. – I said I had one show and I would get sixth? I had one show and I didn’t even place. *insert thumbs up emoji here* Honestly though, I am not too upset about this. Jumping random horses has never been my specialty so the fact that I got so close to Open Fences is good enough for me.
  • Qualify for Zone Finals. – This one didn’t happen either. I can explain the whole thing or I can just say that I was satisfied with my ride, but not elated. It wasn’t awful, but it wasn’t good enough. BUT, our team did have a ride place first in her class and qualify for Zones so I can live vicariously through her kick-ass riding.


April Goals:

  • Add more no-stirrup work to my riding. – Because there is never enough.
  • Get out of my comfort zone and let go. – The “grab for my life” thing has come back and the ponies definitely don’t like it. Two steps forward, one step back.
  • Full body clip – Because Ax is currently the hairiest meatball I have ever seen. And the giant heart on his butt needs to go.
  • Pull his mane – I told you he was hairy…

    love that quote at the end! also nice work on your goals – esp with the near miss on the qualifying. getting so close a feat unto itself!

    I’m pretty sure most horses are hairy meatballs. Unless they are my freak of nature horse who randomly got fuzzy on his barrel? His neck is sleek and shiny.
