Whats your equine guilty pleasure

Maybe you have always dreamed of owning a particular breed, but its outside your resources. Or its a completly differant discipline. Do you secretly dream of owning a equine giant, or a dog sized mini.

Are you a begginer but dream of galloping on a racehorse. A western rider who secretly thinks about riding dressage on a spanish stallion. A jumper wanting a plough horse?

what is your secret equine guiltly pleasure that you daydream about but couldnt happen in reality??

I am so with you on the mounted shooting!!!! I have several horses who would be great at it, but I have serious doubt in my own ability as a pistol shooter. I grew up bird hunting and have fired lots of shotguns but have never fired a handgun of any kind. I may have to find a gun range...that just might be a horse related expense the hubby wouldn't grumble about ;)

I would love to have an all-around ranch horse, but only if I have the huge cattle ranch and ranch chores to go with it.

I'd like a 50-75 stall barn, heated water, shower room (human, so shower, toilet, sink, etc), wash racks, two outdoor arenas, two indoor arenas, three or four round pens, and about 780 acres, about 100 of it being trail ridable. :p
I'd like to have atleast one of the following breeds as well: criollo, Dutch warmblood (imported), clydesdale, appaloosa, qh, paint, tb, morgan, some fancy smancy Spanish breeds, kabarda, sorraia, Breton, and more-but mainly those, lol. And a lot of mustangs. :p
I'd also like to own a large herd of cattle to use for sale and roping/cowbirds practice.(:
And of course I'll train horses, but I guess that's not really unrealistic, since I'm already getting there, haha.

And one thing completely unrelated to that is to travel on the rodeo circuit and compete in team roping, breakaway roping, bareback bronc, barrels, poles, possibly bulls (not gonna happen), and I want to do steer wrestling, but since I'm female it's out. I'm actually very upset that I can't do bull riding or bulldogging on a circuit. Ah well.
