Re: [RC] Happy New Year! - Karen Sullivan

So what are your goals for the new year?  Best wishes to all, jeri

Hate to say I feel too guilty for riding almost every day; between all the
horse-exercise and all
my child obligations (driving to sports, dr., dentist., ortho appts), well,
the house and property
falls apart. I guess my big goal is to put some time back into maintenance
of what could be lovely
horse property!

While I would like to think someday soon I can enjoy an endurance ride
again, having sold the
conditioned and experienced horse that could do one (the Anglo Arab), I need
to focus on the
coming 5 year old; continue the trail riding and grit my teeth and do the
foundation schooling
she needs.  And, much as I want her to be solid in groups and camping, I
need not to rush things.
While I have no doubt she has the conformation for distance; I have not seen
the desire, until lately.
The Anglo Arab taught me that what you see as a 4 year old is not necessarly
what you have as a
7 year old!  So, I believe there is still hope she will develop the GO, and
also, recently, I have seen
the capability of an awesome walk!

But, like Jeri, back on a youngster.....it takes loads and loads of time!

Waffling still on keeping or selling the Arab/Morgan mare, just absolutely
love her gaits and surefootedness;
keep thinking this 15h mare is too small for me....also totally fed up with
dealing with flakey buyers!

Probably biggest goal for coming year is just plain lots of riding and good
times with friends!
