Obviosly I am in need of goals. Not for Casper, thats already sorted for the next few weeks. I know very well what to do with him.
Its Sharlie that is the problem. I...don't really know what to work on! I've gotten back into liberty...
With the beginning of March I may start focusing on Freestyle again, but Sharlie's back is getting worse so I am unsure about that too. However I recently purchased a Theraflex Pad from Hannah so maybe if I just start saddling Sharlie up with that...saddle, unsaddle,saddle, unsaddle, etc...
Also from now on everytime I go down to the stables I am doing hill therapy with Sharlie. I'm not following the guidelines from Parelli anymore because the way its set up is not long enough for Sharlie. That is how bad her back is.
Kara told me an excellent idea last night. Write them on your wrist (or around your wrist). Weekly goals. So I will go into the Levels Assessment and pull out some things I want to work on. Like Kara said: From there they will build.
I sort of had an epiphany about Freestyle the other day even though I've had this epiphany a few times. Riding is the 7 games but in the saddle. Duuuhhhh...Maybe if I focused on that when I start riding again, and not "follow the rail" Sharlie and I will start to improve.
My main concern is I won't be ready to ride Sharlie out on the trails at Kara's place. I reallllllllllly want to. That has been my dream for months now. Ever since camp really...probably before then.
Thats all for now. I'll start posting my goals on here soon.
PS- Posting the video on Youtube didn't work. I don't know why. It won't tell me. Darn iMovie. So if you are my friend on Facebook, make sure to check my videos!
