Achieving Goals and Shifting Them

Saddle Sore and Heart Happy....I finally got to fulfill what has become an "adulthood" goal, going horseback riding. I used to ride as a kid and it was one of things that I loved and left behind. It's taken 30 years for me to get back in the saddle it was so good. I am going to make sure that I go regularly now that I have a stable so close to my home.

Sometimes we make goals that are not achievable in the manner we would like so we adapt. I really wanted to ride a mule down the Grand Canyon and there is a pre-requisite that has turned my attention away from this particular goal. So, I found a similar one to trade for this one. I am preparing my body to go on a horseback camping trip through Canyon de Chelly. There are so many other ways to enjoy the Grand Canyon and this is a unique way to feed my equine desires ;-)

I am anticipating that this will be one of my more far reaching goals since it will take quite a lot of training to have the stamina to ride 5-6 hours a day, so will keep you posted as I make baby steps to this particular bigger goal.
