Barrel Racing Goals

Monday, July 4, 2022


Hey y'all! 

I typically don't share my barrel racing goals online because quite honestly I'm afraid I'll be ridiculed. It's the same reason I rarely post riding videos. People are just too fucking mean. 

My ultimate long term goal would be to win the gold buckle. 

But I'm not naive in watching countless others try for years who still haven't won it, so my BIG goal is just to make it. Be in the top 15 and have a chance at it. 

Before I get to that goal there are a ton of small goals to achieve first. Backwards planning is what I use to do goals. So I have the big goal and then from there I go backwards to what the next big milestone would be right before that goal, and so on and so forth. Then you have a string of large goals that you'd like to achieve, and from there I fill in little milestones along each one to track progress. And to help plan for what I need to do to make those little goals. 

My current little goal is to start riding my mare and get her going on the pattern. It's a super small goal, but she needed a lot of foundational training before we were going to be able to start. And now we're finally actually ready to start on the pattern. 

What are your goals and how do you plan?
