Equestrian Resolutions


We all have goals and aspirations, things we have always dreamed of doing or hope we could experience at least once. As equestrians, our horses are in the middle of our lives and therefore, our dreams. We want to achieve our goals with them, experience new things with them, and, of course, discover new adventures with them. 

The beginning of a new year is the perfect time to reflect on these goals and turn them into resolutions that will encourage you to make your dreams come true with your loyal companion. But where to start? Get a pen and paper, here are some ideas:

Start Simple

When setting your goals, try to be realistic and start with the simplest thing you can achieve. As you achieve them one by one, you will find the courage to make harder dreams come true. You can make a random list of all the ideas that come to your mind and organize them in order from the easiest to the hardest. 


Consider The Potential of Your Horse

Your horse is the main character in your 2023 chapter. Evaluate its condition and consider what its capabilities are. If you wish to achieve an equestrian goal that might be a bit too much for your horse, either change it to something more suitable or evaluate the options of trying it with another horse. Don’t push your horse to do something beyond its potential and avoid injuries.

Resolutions To Try This Year

  1. Ride at sunrise: While most equestrians love a relaxing sunset ride, why not try something different like a sunrise ride? Imagine witnessing nature come alive as the sun peeks over the horizon. Plus, the cooler temperatures of the morning will make the ride more comfortable for both you and your horse.

  2. Go on a trail ride with your bestie: That’s one of the best ways to strengthen your bonds with your horse and with your best friend.
