I want a Marwi ( not sure how to spell it)
They have the coolest ears and are high steppers like my saddlebreds!
And they are gaited and some are pintos too.

I have a obsession for quality leather, saddles, bridles, reins, etc.

I want some kind of cob horse, probably a gypsy cob. I'd get one too if they didn't cost so much. I just like feathered feet and big bums :)

oh and i'd love to try my hand at eventing, xc just looks so exciting. maybe i'll have to wait until i can get a cob before i try that though i doubt my poor horse could handle the stress.

I agree on the mustangs. Boy, would it take a lot of money and resources to do it right, but I would love to have a massive piece of land where I could take mustangs that BLM rounds up, let them take refuge, and run free.

I was actually thinking about this today!!!


I would want a large ranch on the outskirts of town so I could still be close to some civilization. It would have a huge indoor arena and, of course, an outdoor arena. Acres of grassy pastures!!! A big pond, and access to miles upon miles of wooded trails! It wouldn't be far off from the ocean either though, so I could trailer over there for a nice ride on the beach!!! Two - Three 12 stall barns. Every barn would have two heated wash racks, hay storage area, and heated waters. Each stall would have it's own paddock with the option to close off the paddock. A medium sized, country style, house --doesn't need to be huge. It would also have a small guest cottage and apartments above the barns for me helpers. I would have some fruit trees, dogwoods, and vegetable gardens! I would want to have some boarders so there were some friendly people around to socialize with. I would also want to work on training horses.


I would have a handful of rockin' ranch working, bulldog type, QH's --At least one buckskin, palamino, and paint. They would be my (and my hired wrangler's) mounts for working my medium size herd of cattle black and red angus cattle.
My fantasy horses I would own would be (in this order):
-A BEAUTIFUL Black Fresian, with a long thick mane and tail, that I could ride at liberty and gallop along the fields and the beach like you see in the movies. haha
- A miniature horse that was house / car trained like a dog!
- An Icelandic pony. Chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail. They are so small and hardy, I'd love to just hop on one bareback and cruise around my property checking up on everything.
- Rocky Mountain Horse- I just like their coloration.

I'd have a Large Breed dog (St. Bernard, Anatolian Shepherd, or Great Dane) along with a border collie. A DONKEY would be a MUST. Along with some goats and chickens.

I'm not huge into competing, but I have dreamed of competing in reining, cutting, trail competitions, or possibly dressage.

Ahhhhh... Good thread topic!

Driving with a team of two Belgian geldings, that I will name Castor and Pollux, or one Shire that I will name Colossus. :)

My dream is to take my foal from birth to riding horse without failing and giving up on him. I don't even mind hiring a trainer, I just want him to respect me. It has always been my dream to take a horse from youngster to adult, because all of my other horses have been from middle age onward. I have never owned anything younger until my "mannerless child" (foal) came along.

I don't know why I can never seem to find a good trail horse under the age of 11. I seemed destined to own horses from middle aged until death. I LOVE older horses, it's just that I have lost three of them, and I get tired of having them put to sleep.

Other than that, I would love to own a Friesian or draft cross one day. Even just a good old grade draft cross would be right up my ally! Or maybe a larger Haflinger. I love drafty horses but don't need something 17 hands, lol.

I want to go cross country, and i mean from one ocean to the next, with a team of Belgian mules pulling a wagon. That or I want to ride my horse all the way across the country. I also want to have some property, and be able to use my mules to work the land. I want them to be able to use them to help with a small garden.

I would also like to do the cowboy mounted shooting. I think that would be a lot of fun.
