Biggest riding accomplishment?: I feel like my biggest riding accomplishment is staying on my horse when I get on him. When we can achieve that goal I would say laying out a solid dressage test. That is my hardest phase for both me and my horse and when we can go in the sandbox and not let the pressure to be perfect get to us, there is nothing that can stop us. Biggest riding goal?: I like to set my goals from show season to show season so every season I go out and think what goal can I set that I will be able to attain this year. My goal for this season is to move my horse up to the training level and to be competitive and to be able to walk away from this show season with some homework that we need to work on in the off season to make us ready to come back even stronger then we did before
