2024 Get Gritty Winter Horsemanship Challenge
Are you gritty enough for the 2024 Winter Horsemanship Challenge?
Starting Sunday, January 7th through Saturday, March 2nd, 2024, the grittiest riders commit to working with their horse 24 times (an average of 3 times a week). Along the way you'll go through Chevy’s Get Gritty Goal Setting Program and learn groundwork and riding exercises so you can start 2024 on the right hoof!
This challenge is open to any rider, any discipline, any breed. This isn't a training challenge, but rather, an accountability and inspiration challenge. You are responsible for tracking the sessions that you spend with your horse-we are working on the honor system here. I highly encourage you to be active in the Facebook group supporting each other, posting your photos and videos.
What counts? Any session with your horse(s) that is at least 20 minutes of time when you are focused on your horse. This can be riding, doing groundwork, liberty, bodywork, basically any kind of activity with your horse.
Now, if you are in, I expect you to be IN. The challenge is to work with your horse 24 times during the 8 week challenge. No excuses-this means getting out there in the cold and snow, the rain and mud. Together, we're going to get gritty, turn our passion for horsemanship into practice, and persevere through the winter blahs. Come spring, you and your horse will be ready to go!
This challenge is more than just a place to track your rides-it is also a motivational goal setting coaching program! Each week has a different coaching video and pdf workbook to help you develop turn your horse dreams into goals and action plans to be successful with your horse in 2024 and beyond.
Here's what you'll get during the challenge:
Weekly Challenge Exercises! There will be one groundwork exercise and one riding exercise posted each Sunday. The groundwork exercises are the exercises I use to prepare colts for their first saddling. The riding exercises are the basic riding skills for any discipline. These are great refresher exercises for every horse and rider!
Weekly Goal Setting Coaching Sessions. Each week Chevy will share with you a coaching video and printable pdf workbook walking you through her Get Gritty Goal Setting program. By the end of the 8 week challenge you will have mapped out how you will achieve your 2024 horse goals.
Daily support from Coach Chevy and other Challenge Participants in the private challenge Facebook Group to keep you inspired and motivated! Post your photos and videos to share every win, celebrate your progress and support each other.
Win a Challenge Champion Prize!
Of course, the biggest prize you'll earn is improving your horsemanship, furthering your partnership with your horse and making progress towards your horse goals.
Gritty Cowgirls (and Cowboys!) that log in 24 sessions during the challenge will win a Get Gritty Winter Challenge Champion water bottle (and bragging rights!)
