2018 Goals Update: March

Life is kind of insane right now. I assume my horse is still alive. Pretty sure the barn would’ve told me if he weren’t. Other than that…working 24/7.

I have just about enough brain cells to do a goals update, so here we go.

2. Ride 3 new-to-me horses. – no progress on this, definite plans for the summer
