Happy New Year

Welcome 2016! Firstly I wish all of you a healthy, happy and successful 2016.
I am aiming in 2016 firstly to get my horses, myself and Montydog, through it healthy and happy. There will undoubtedly be setbacks but these are to be expected – they are part of the shaping of the future and how you deal with them is what matters. I have seen some friends deal admirably with some exceptionably tough times through 2015 and hope that 2016 treats them well.
This morning I have entered my first dressage competition of 2016. This is also to be the first Novice Dressage Test that Spangle will have done. I am looking forward to the challenge and the preparations. I have started reading the test and thinking about how I will ride the sections of it to get the best result. Tiny tangible tickable targets. Breaking it down into small pieces is a great help.
Longer term through 2016 it is my goal to complete a 2* Fei Endurance event at the end of March, The 2 day 180km PK Scottish Horseshoe event and the Cairngorm 100. Some of the Cairngorms area is likely to have been badly hit by the storm on 30 December which has caused much devastation in Upper Deeside.
I must go and renew my Scottish Endurance Riding Club membership and look into FEI reregistration.
