Feeling overwhelmed by all the steps needed to reach your riding goals? Don't worry! We'll share with you a powerful framework to make achieving your goals easier than ever! 🏆

Let’s dive into the GROW Model—a simple yet effective method to transform your dreams into achievements. 🌱

GROW Model Breakdown
GROW stands for Goal, Reality, Options, and Will do. Let's explore each step:

1. Goal (G) 🎯
Set a clear, specific goal. Your goal should be:

  • Specific: You should know exactly when you’ve achieved it.
  • Time-bound: Set a deadline to avoid procrastination.
  • Within Your Control: Focus on what you can influence.

Example Goals:

  • By August 1, 2024, I will be able to run 10 kilometers.
  • By September 3, 2024, I will complete a 120cm showjumping course.

2. Reality (R) 🧭
Assess your current situation to understand your starting point. This helps you see what you need to work on.

Why It’s Important:

  • Measure Backwards: Compare your progress from where you started.
  • Awareness: Knowing your current situation motivates change.

Example: If your goal is to improve your canter transitions, acknowledge where you are now and celebrate small wins!

3. Options (O) 💡
Brainstorm all possible ways to reach your goal. Be creative and think of various paths.

How to Brainstorm:

  • List all possible actions.
  • Seek advice from those who have achieved similar goals.

Example Options for Showjumping:

  • Start showjumping training once a week.
  • Read about showjumping techniques.
  • Network with riders who compete at 120cm.

4. Will Do (W) ✔️
Action is key! Prioritize your options and pick one to start with immediately.

Taking Action:

  • Choose the most impactful option.
  • Take the first step right now, even if it’s as simple as booking a lesson.
