Goal Setting While at Home

Although we don't know when barn life will go back to normal and competitions will resume, setting goals now while at home can do two things: provide hope and help prepare for when the time comes! With the extra time at home, riders can re-watch old videos or go over old test scores to see what areas can be improved upon through goals.

Thanks to this article (click to read more) from Dressage Today magazine, here are a few goal setting tips to keep in mind.

1. Small accomplishments are still accomplishments.
2. It’s human nature to be critical.
3. When you set a goal, use positive language to phrase it.
4. If we set goals in such a way that it makes the first step difficult, it is unlikely that we will attain the goal.
5. Remember that goals are helpful tools, but they do not exist in isolation.

Southwind Farm has the facilities and support network to help all of our boarders achieve their individual goals, whatever they may be! With an indoor arena, two outdoor arenas, some XC fences, trails and more, Southwind is the place to be! Learn about our current boarding options by emailing Sheri Thornley at: today.
