The Difference Between a Dream and a Goal


So the last few months we've been featuring topics on overcoming struggles and bouncing-back positively into life. Naturally the next step from accepting change needs to happen is to actually plan your next steps forward and set goals to get your groove back!  At The Saddle Camp, as much as we love watching our riders develop their confidence and take a positive step into the future back to everyday life, we also LOVE creating MAGIC and the seemingly IMPOSSIBLE! There is nothing more satisfying than proving to both ourselves and our doubters exactly what is POSSIBLE when you have a dream!

Our favourite quote at the moment is "The Difference between a Dream and a Goal - is a Plan" because of its abrupt truth. When you envision your dream, make stepping stone goals towards it.  Our path is never straight nor flat when chasing a dream but as long as we are always moving toward it (be that forward or sideways) we can create our very own MIRACLES!

A family business that has successfully chased their dreams happened to walk onto our farm not too long ago and shared with us their story; Gilberts Equestrian. 

Beginning with a love of horses in the UK, the Gilbert Family knew they would be a part of the industry from the get-go, it was just a matter of how! 

With the drive and passion, little by little (over many years) that little competition hobby bloomed into a beautiful competition yard in the heart of Herefordshire. Now run by Penny and her daughter Chloe - a qualified riding coach - the yard specialises in Eventing and Event Ponies producing horses and ponies for all ages and skill sets. "We often have a vast range of horses competing from low level to international." Whilst running the yard, Penny still regularly competes at dressage on her warmblood named Diamond. 

As riders themselves, the Gilbert Family understood the markets need for correct fitting and quality equipment for all riders (from happy hack to top level competition), and established Gilberts Equestrian in 2010. Its an online Equestrian Store.  In 2017, after many visits and a round-the-world move, Penny's daughter & son-in-law - Annabel & Jonathon - expanded the family brand to Australia. Living in Australia only drives the Gilbert Family further to bring quality, dependable products that are sure to endure our climate from around the world, to your door so you can continue to RIDE YOUR WAY.
