Well it’s official. The little Punxsutawney beastie saw his shadow. Which means, 6 more weeks of winter. But I choose to look at it from a different perspective. There are only 6 weeks left of winter! That means you have six weeks to get ready for springtime horse time!

Think about all of the things you want to be able to accomplish this summer with your horse. Isn’t it nice to know that you have 6 more weeks to get ready for all that fun? I think so! And since I’m a planner, it’s time to get planning.

Planning For Spring

With 6 weeks, we have plenty of time to come up with some things to do when the temperature warms up and the ground finally thaws out. Think about things that will give you memories, and experiences.

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I am at a loss of what to do. I have so many things that I want to do that I get overwhelmed because there is just so much I want to do! But by coming up with a plan, or a list, if you get bored and have some free time, you can refer back to your list.

Come Up With YOUR Plan

So going off of what I just talked about, come up with a list of things you want to be able to accomplish this summer and write those things down. Or you can put them in your phone if that’s more your speed. This isn’t a contest. Come up with ideas and experiences you want to enjoy, and write them down.

Once you have written them down, you have brought these goals to life. And now it’s up to you to figure out how you are going to make those goals a reality.

And, if you got your personalized calendar from Snapfish when I shared that in my only post for January (sorry about that), you have the perfect place to write down your goals.

When I made my calendar, I added in some goals for the upcoming year along with cute little photo reminders for myself. I really like this calendar.

I got to make it exactly like I wanted it to be, and every time I look at the calendar, I get to see my photos. That makes my heart happy.

Now Is The Time To Plan

Right now is the best time to come up with your summertime plans. Because, if there is anything you need to get done in order to do what you want to do this summer, you have the time to do it! Then when it is nice outside, you can actually do what you were planning, instead of waiting for something to come in the mail. Or spending two weeks in your garage building something.

Building A Set of Horse Jumps - For Less than $300

Take jump building for example. If you want to have your horse go over a complete course of jumps, and you don’t have any jumps, you will be spending a lot of time making said jump course. So why not spend some time NOW building the jumps?

Or what if you want to learn a new discipline, do you have everything you will need for that riding style? If the answer is no, you have the time now to get everything you will need. And you’ll probably save yourself some money because you aren’t rushing to get everything you need in a few days.

The Never Ending Winter – And Getting Ready For Spring

So you see, I am happy there are 6 weeks left of winter. I have a lot of planning to do, and I want to be ready when the weather is nice. So it’s time to get planning, and prepare for it. I promise you, if you do, you will really enjoy your time this summer, and feel less rushed doing it.

Happy Planning!
