The new year isn't just a great time to set goals, but it is also a good time to reflect on where you have been, where you are and where you are going. The same holds true for your horse. Take the time to watch the oldest and most current videos/photos of your horse and note how they compare. For some people, this will be a lesson in the progress you are making in you and your horse's training. For others, maybe your horse is in his golden years and this will serve as a trip down memory lane that reminds you of all you have accomplished. Perhaps you only have one video of your new horse and the absence of more is a pleasant reminder of all to come. Regardless of your situation, I hope you make reviewing your videos a yearly tradition (and maybe consider making a video to add to the library each year, specifically to track your progress). Here is wishing you all the best in your dressage training in 2012 and hoping that the past, present and future memories you create with your horse are only overshadowed by 2013!
