Everything Journal Template Ideas

The beauty of the Success Journal is that you can make it fit your riding rather than using someone else’s set journal or diary that doesn’t quite fit you and your riding journey.

I totally understand that sometimes getting started is the hardest part, so here are some template ideas for you to think about and use in your Success Journal… a little bit of everything!

Information on my horse:

Date of Birth:
Height:
Colour:
Breed:
Sire:
Dam:
Vet Notes:
Competition Number/Registration Details (eg. Registration numbers for competing dressage)

Competition Planner:

Use the attached yearly planner (it has been adjusted in size to fit your diary if you click on the image, save it and print it out at 100% of the image size) to write in your competition dates.

Monthly Planner:

Write the dates that you are riding and what you will work on.

For Example:

DATE:
What I did: (what did I do in my riding session today – what was my warm up, what exercises did I work on, what was my cool down?)

What I learned: (eg. To keep my horse rounder I need to keep a steadier outside rein, or I need to ride more forward or I need to prepare better etc…)
What I need to remember: (next riding session, what do I have to ensure I remember to do to get the same results?)

Literally write to the journal and pour out everything you are thinking and feeling from that day:

Dear Diary…

Here are some template examples from my diary that I created specifically around goal setting – feel free to use them in your journal!!

Track your goals, your health, your mood, your savings – use the journal to track anything that is important to you!

See the below examples for ideas of what you could use the journal for (there are HEAPS!! of cool ideas out there – so utilise the digital age we live in and google for more ideas, or use pinterest!)

Track your success by writing it all down:

What am I grateful for?
What did I learn today?
How did I improve today?
How did I succeed today?
Which goals did I complete today?

Monthly Wrap Up:

Use the attached monthly wrap up to print out and stick in your Success Journal to reflect on the week just gone and track how your goals are doing.
