I usually try to set myself a daily goal.
Today I will work on my seat
Today I will work on my horses lateral flexibility
Today I will work on the collection
Today I will work on the transistions
Today I will work on the quality of my horses trot
Today I will work on the flying changes ( 4/3/2 tempi)
today I will work on the straightness and balance of my horse
Today I will work on the pirouettes and half passes
and so on ...
Usually when I go to the stables I am much more disciplined when I have a daily goal then when I don't have any daily goals because then each day at the barn looks the same and you can get bored easily.
Set realistic goals for the future.
Next year I want to reach this or that level
Or in 4 years I want to win a .......... level test.
i want to do win 1 m oder 1.20 or 1.40
I want to be able to ride my horse with more sensible aids.
I want to reach another level of the training scale
I think goals keep you motivated and you should make your own goals for the future .
Then set smaller goals that will help you reach the final goal
And then set daily goals that will also help you to reach all the other goals
