Note from the President

2024 is underway and there are many events being planned for us all. So now is the time to make your plan - set goals - and get into shape. Goal setting is important for everyone! You and your horse should have goals and will need to plan accordingly. For some if us it will be a goal of clinics and local shows for others it may be a full competitive show season on the mainland. Whatever your goals may be, now is the time to get organized. 

So make vet and doctor appointments for both of you now. Make sure your memberships are renewed and calendar is laid out. Start your exercise routines now and ease into heavier workouts - this goes for your horse also. Check your equipment and riding gear so you are set for the season.

Recently, I was reminded to have two sets of goals for the season. One never knows what will happen so having two separate goals can help you still have success no matter what happens. This season I will aim for local clinics and shows and I will work my horse in hand. Good luck this season!!!
