Here are My (first) 5 Things:
2. Piece of tack you’d love to splurge on: we're not rich or anything, but when I see something I really want, I ultimately get it. But there is one thing I've had my eye on for a while that I can't see myself buying any time soon; a nice all purpose saddle. I don't need it for dressage of course, but if I do more fox hunting, it would be more appropriate for that sport.
4. Most important aspect of your barn: private and all inclusive. I board my two horses at a private home where I am treated as though I actually live there. Other than actually purchasing the hay, I am consulted on every issue related to my horses' care. My barn owners will do any "services" that I request like blanketing, feeding supplements, turn out, etc. I am there nearly seven days a week though, so I am free to do as I please.
1) Firm up some of the First Level movements (leg yield and lengthenings). 2) Get Sydney's right lead canter departure down pat.
3) Try at least one more fox hunt.
