I have a lot of goals for 2014. Many are family goals such as raising my baby boy and oh- planning a wedding! Yikes! I know the venue and a possible photographer- my horse trainer actually does photography. What better person to photograph the wedding of a ranch girl than someone who gets ranches and horses?
I love the above plaid Ralph Lauren dress as a model for a flower girl/junior bridesmaid's dress. I was actually picturing a navy plaid to go with fall colors (wedding is in October.)
My horse goals are probably the biggest! Since I can not ride this winter due to slippery mud, snow, and ice, and I am trying to get back into shape after having a baby, I am thinking of taking some lessons this winter. This is much more appealing to me then joining a gym, although more expensive. Four years ago I took saddleseat lessons and it was the best workout ever! I was sow in places I didn't know existed.
There is no place to ride saddle seat where I live now. There are a few Hunter/jumper and dressage barns. I took h/j lessons in my 20's and loved it. I would actually like to learn some dressage to use with Luna. I want her to go in either saddle. In fact, we got a Christmas card from a local friend who said she was able to go on a fox hunt this year and the first thing I thought was- where do I sign up! I want to do that! I did some research and there are some hunt clubs in our state. It might not make my to-do list this year, but it's at least on my horsey bucket list!
I also want to get My Boy back into shape. I will mostly be continuing Luna's training next spring and summer. I will not part with my spotted pill so I am hoping to find someone to ride him for me.
What are your horse goals for 2014?
Have a safe and fabulous New Year everyone!
