New Year. New Food. New Attitude.
With the start of 2019 came the start of Jean-Luc’s “curriculum modification.”
Several things have happened to really kick my tail in gear:
1. I am eating healthier than ever and because of this . . .
2. Jean-Luc is also on a new diet – Omolene 200 Performance Concentrate Horse Feed | Purina. When Tractor Supply gets the senior version of this in we will switch that. Jean-Luc has completed a little over 10 days (about how long a bag lasts), and for the first time since we’ve been together, I am starting to feel hind end muscle development – most noticeably on our snowy ride last Sunday.
3. Completed 2 rides in the pouring snow.
4. We completed one 12 mile ride where we trot/paced/ cantered for at least 8 miles and (barely) managed to keep an average speed of 5 mph.
5. We survived 0-degree weather – an accomplishment in and of itself.
6. Joined the HRN 2019 Winter Challenge – This shouldn’t be too difficult. The goal is to complete 40 hours of horsemanship, with 30 rides in by the end of March 2019.
My goals for this week include:
1. Complete 10 hill exercise in one day
2. Work on the hill 3 days this week.
3. Complete at least 8 miles in one day
4. Continue feed schedule
Today is already Tuesday, and we’ve got a big week ahead – fingers crossed we can get it all in.
