- Ride more
Well, that I certainly did. Not sure how many miles Sunny and I covered, but my Frequent Rider Log courtesy of the Arabian Horse Association shows a lot more hours than previous years.

C- on this one, and it's going to have to carry over to 2012. I donated some odds and ends of things in good condition to the horse rescue booth at the SD Horse Fair for their tacksale table. And I did manage to sell one saddle that I'm not using, but I acquired another one. Things look pretty decent at the moment because three of them are currently in the trailer and three are at the saddler's being oiled. And that's just the saddles.
- Ride more: Ideally, I want to put more hours on Sunny this year than I did last year. And since I'm not spending the better part of the week 2 1/2 hours away, that's realistic.
"Really, you're going to ride me?"
- Lessons: Keep going with hunt seat with Sunny, and on reining with Amyra.
October - and you should see how much better we look now!
- Tack clean-out: Reduce, repurpose, recycle... Ebay.
It's going to look this good again!
- Show: At least one local show with Sunny, and -
Okay, I'm getting butterflies just thinking about this one...
