Last newsletter included information on goal planning, and I would like to put some follow up info here on our site for everyone. Many of us have met to go over preliminary goal setting ideas for the upcoming year/season, and as January comes to a close, I would like to make sure I get the chance to meet with everyone individually to help firm up goals they would like to set. If interested, please contact me to set a time when we can go over your goals and come to something in writing you can begin to plan action with! I want to make sure everyone has equal access to the goal setting documents, and several documents that have been used to help some set their goals in motion. If you would rather set some goals for yourself privately, please feel free to use the documents listed below to assist or inspire you. Goals are what you make of them, and they should truly reflect your ambitions in your riding regardless of discipline or where you started. They do not have to be competition related, they can be about achieving personal accomplishments with your horse, tackling certain age old issues, or venturing in a new direction with your equine partner. Goals can lay the paths to set you in motion and give you direction toward improving your quality of time with your horse on a day to day basis. Goals can also change throughout the course of time, and often should to reflect circumstances that may deem a new direction necessary. Goals are meant to expand your horizon, not limit it, so set them accordingly for maximum benefit! Below are several documents to help set your upcoming goals, and some supplemental documents to help brainstorm and begin setting some goals in motion.
