The online equestrian journaling site, Barnby Notes, announces the sponsorship of dressage trainer, Hilary Moore. Hilary will regularly contribute to the online community of goal-setting equestrians who have chosen this web-based journaling to achieve success.
Additionally, Hilary's students will be invited to journal on Barnby Notes and take advantage of the diverse resources this state-of-the-art program has to offer.
Allison Brunelli, Founder & Owner, Barnby Notes:
"Just a few weeks ago, I spotted a blog post on Dressage Today titled, Perfect Enough. I laughed when I read Hilary’s take on how perfect we dressage riders oftentimes try to be. At least for me, she nailed it. She described how I want to be most of the time and she reminded me of how important it is to focus on finishing my rides feeling content that my horse and I don’t need to be perfect every day, but we can be “perfect enough”. A simple, but very important reminder, and I can’t thank her enough.
Hilary’s blog was compelling enough that I felt a connection and that prompted me to contact her. I wanted more. And I wanted her to write for the Web site I founded called Barnby Notes. Barnby Notes is a site that offers a new and exciting online training notebooks designed exclusively for equestrians. We encourage equestrians to write down their goals and what they have learned while in the saddle because if they do, they can significantly improve their memory retention and make the connections they are striving for in their riding. Hilary loved the idea of writing for Barnby Notes because she is a big advocate of goal setting. All in all, as I get to know Hilary, I’m finding that she really cares. And her caring approach really matters. The simple act of caring, especially that of keeping a notebook, improves the quality of each and every student’s life and that of their horses!
I am now sponsoring Hilary and her students with our new online notebook. And, I still read Hilary’s blogs on Dressage Today. They make me laugh while learning something new. Hilary seems like the kind of person and trainer that can offer a lot to others. I wish her and her students the best and am happy to support her and her students with the tools to focus on greater goal setting strategies.
As for me, this year I have a new goal while I somehow try to piece together Fourth Level. I will say to myself before each ride “Today is the perfect day to ride perfect enough.”"
Check out the February 2010 issue of Stable Management magazine for an interview with Hilary on building a successful relationship with your barn owner(s) to grow your training business.
I just received the draft of my article for the April issue of Dressage Today on Test Prep. Just in time for show season (fingers crossed that the snow clears by then), it will give you tips and tricks from a very different perspective ;) Stay tuned.
