Off the List

What an interesting year it has been! I’d like to thank all of you for making it though my various pity parties, meltdowns, and emotional rollar coaster moments. Seriously…I wrote those posts, and I don’t even want to read them.

However, I truly do appreciate all the support that was given! You guys are awesome.

I may have mentioned I love lists. Especially crossing things off of lists. Too bad I started this blog on a whim and had basically no aspirations for it at the time. Case in point-no goals.


Well, I guess I had one. That will come later.

Anyway, I thought I might take a minute to highlight the good parts of things I needed to accomplish with O in 2013 that got us to (our next post) where we need to start in 2014 goal-wise.

Biggest and baddest first:
SOUNDNESS. After months of vets and conditioning, we think (knock on wood) that we may have found a way to keep O in work, sound, and happy. Success!

Other goals included:
Getting a lead change (accomplished but not prettily)
Jumping a full course (woot-check that off the list)
Riding 4-5 times a week (most of the time this is a success)
Show O in anything (epic fail)
Switch farriers to my preferred (I’m sure the other farriers hate me now, but I love my guy)
Find a bit that works for O (rubber snaffle-success)

On a personal side of goals:
I managed to stay married through all those vet bills (ouch)

My one goal for the year, which came out of my growing attachment to this blog, was to reach 100 followers by 2014. As of today, O pony and I have exactly 100 followers. And with a whole day to spare! Ha!

Once again thank you to all the readers out there; you are fantastic. I would love to put together a giveaway to celebrate reaching 100, so stay tuned for that in the next few weeks!
