Horse Training Goals
For many of us, we find that it is far easier to achieve
our goals if we set them by firmly imprinting them in our
minds. Or it is even more preferable to write them down.
Setting both short term and long term goals in horse training
allows you to determine where you are heading and how to keep
track of your accomplishments along the way. To aid in goal
setting, always keep a log book of what horse training procedures
you did, and also the times and dates along with the results.
Knowing you are consistently achieving your goals can help
you confidently continue to work towards them. Nothing seems
to feel worse than to keep striving towards your goals and
not really make much progress at all with them.
If you are training your horse and not having much luck, it
may be time to re-establish your goals. Of course, short term
goals are the first essential steps in horse training.
When you set any goals, make sure that you write them down!
This will greatly help you to keep track of your goals and
remind you what you hope to accomplish.
Failure to write them down can be self-defeating. Studies
have shown that people who write down their goals are much
more likely to succeed.
Thirty-day goals are more ideal for smaller tasks such as
getting your wild horse used to you and getting him/her to
allow you to halter it more easily. These are very significant
short term goals and crucial to your horse training success.
Afterwards, you can set up sixty-day goals and ninety-day
goals for more advanced horse training procedures. Pace yourself
and do not try to race through it. Remember, like with anything
else, it takes time.
Goals are your dreams that you want to see realized. These
are certainly what you hope to achieve in your horse training
endeavors, both now and in the long run.
Where do you want to be one year from now? Where would you
like to be in five years, ten years or twenty years from this
day? What exactly do you hope to achieve? Write down your
answers and stick with them.
Your short term and long term goals can be virtually anything,
but it is important to make them realistic and achievable!
There is no point in trying to set up goals that you know
are unworkable and impossible to pull off.
Wild horse training was never meant to be accomplished in
just a couple of days or in a few weeks. It takes time, patience
Always remember to be fair with yourself and do not sell yourself
short. It is important to remember that your goals should
not be set in stone.
If you find that you have not been able to accomplish certain
goals within in a given time frame, you can always change
the time line of your goals to make it more manageable. This
is fully acceptable to do.
Because remember, every horse is different and so is every
trainer. When setting your goals, remember to take one step
at a time and cross them off your list as you go. With each
goal you cross off, you will feel a great sense of pride and
