It's the new year which means we should all set unachievable goals that we will never keep...
But how about instead we set some achievable ones? Here are 10 model horse New Years Resolutions that we should all be able to keep.
1. Buy what you love
This one may sound strange but I think it's a good resolution. Don't just buy it because you think it will show well, or because others are buying it. Focus on spending your money on horses you love. Who cares what others think?
2. Finish those UFOs!
What's at the bottom of your body box? Or should I not ask? A brilliant resolution is to finish off those unfinished projects before starting any new ones. Open that body box and dig out those victims!
3. Learn a new skill
Always wanted to airbrush? Or know how to make tack? Whatever it is you are interested in find some online tutorials, get those supplies in and learn something new!
4. Show more
It doesn't have to be at live shows, why not try your hand at photoshowing or postal showing? Organise your show string and get involved.
5. Get organised
Whether it is sorting out those pedigrees or just your basic records, get organised! Develop a good cataloguing system and stick to it. Organise your tack, show results and everything else. Start 2017 off well with good organisation :D
6. Try something new
Why not try something new with your model horses? Never taken part in a postal show? Always wanted to create pedigrees? Too scared to try performance? Find something new, however unusual and give it a go!
7. Give something back
Give something back to the hobby we all love. Whether it's being an admin on a forum, running your own show series or volunteering at a local live show. Giving something back to the hobby helps make it better for everything.
8. Have some fun
Why so serious? Have some fun with the hobby! Create a photostory, play with your horses, create your own stables and yard. Have fun with your horses and enjoy yourself :)
9. Share the love
Is there an artist who you absolutely adore? Or a company who have been nothing than brilliant? Why not share the love and encourage others to buy from them. If you love something someone is doing then share them, shout about them and get others to love them like you do!
Tidy those shelves. Organise your tack boxes and make more space! You'll be amazed the amount of space you can create by reorganising your shelves!
