This "GOALS" page was inspired by Viva Carlos - Goals, because this is the perfect place to store my written goals and aspirations as I convey the roller-coaster ride of my journey!
I started 2013 with the goal of Eventing the Old Man at recognized horse trials at the beginner novice level. When he left me, I had to make a drastic re-evaluation and clearly address my expectations of the Fancy Pony.
Entering 2014, I'm looking at the most efficient way to achieve my long term goals. I may find myself making short term sacrifices in order to set myself up for greater long term achievement. I couldn't ask for a more supportive team to help me chase my dreams!
