Happy New Year!

Never any New Year’s Resolutions here, but I DO think about what I’d like to have happen during the new, fresh, year that’s waiting ahead.

Can’t wait to see how it will all turn out!

Have a major goal for 2017?  Or maybe some smaller ones, but just as important in themselves?  I’d love to hear about it!

One of mine is to install a free-flow leg yield with miss young mare.  Getting there.

She actually lengthened this diagonal – it happened!  There’s hope!  (Scratch the “geeking out” goal.  Already there.)

    1. Me too!! I’d love to read about yours. What I think is the most difficult, is to actually make the goals – when I know some of them are simply just not up to me. If I had it my way, I’d be going to Rated Shows several times this year. But since I don’t have a way to actually get there on my own, I have to sort of scale down the goals. In time though, it will happen!
