However, I still like doing little surveys and things, and the SWOT analysis (which I just wrote about for HN, and which is getting an abysmally low number of pageviews) feels fun like a survey, but is also productive (kind of?).
|From the coupon book Byron made for me: "We can make fun of others while we ride."|
- Have a horse to ride and stay in shape
- Improved body awareness since last year
- Figured out exclusively doing dressage does not make me happy
- Supportive significant other
- I've been a super chicken with riding in cold weather and snow even though we have an indoor.
- Midnight is limited to light riding since he has a boo-boo on his leg. God knows what he did but apparently light exercise will keep the blood flowing and healing.
- Money! I now have more money than I used to so riding is easier financially.
- Great connections
- Foxhunting opportunities
- Finding a new horse
- Waiting for Midnight to find a new leaser (before you ask--I know I don't have to do this, but I'm sticking around as a favor to the owner)
- Time crunch: my 'real' work schedule changed so I can't get to the barn till late, and weekends are semi-taken up with Horse Nation
I won't lie and pretend I'm going to review these quarterly or whatever. Who knows what I'll be up to with my riding in a year? But here are some goals I think are feasible with where I am right now.
- Foxhunt at least once in 2014.
- Trail ride a bunch to get excited about riding again.
- Keep up with dressage but also get back into jumping more once I get the new horse.
Ok, off to a 40% winter inventory clearance sale at the tack shop before I go ride!! I hope to score some tan winter breeches since the only ones I have are blue.
