I'd like to own or get to ride a Freisian at least one time. I've often daydreamed of riding on the sandy beach and through the surf of an ocean. I would have preferred to learn to ride English first then taken up Western.

I'd love to have an Irish Draught that's well trained in dressage and move to the Bahamas with him so we can ride along the beaches every day.

Yeah, like when I win the lottery.

I'm a western rider, but I've always wanted to do dressage some day with some Appaloosas of my own [with a hint of spanish blood]. To have a big ranch with just a butt load of appaloosas that can do a little bit of everything. From herding cattle out on a range to being some tough competition in western and english events. Of course that's probably never going to happen!

I guess I'm just seeing spots. /bricked xD

I appologize to anyone who had to witness that terrible pun.

But just to be able to own a lot of property out in the middle of nowhere with a bunch of horses, cows, chickens, and dogs. Pretty much every animal I can get my paws on and turn it into a normal ranch. Well, with me I it wouldn't be that normal. I would love to have a barn with about 20+ stalls, and giant rolling pastures. To have trails to ride as much as I want, and wildlife to watch. But obviously I have my head in the clouds, it's never going to really happen.

I want to be an eventer ;)

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.

Besides wanting a veritable paradise for horse and human, I secretly wish I could be a jockey. I do exercise racers but unfortunately am too heavy to be a jock. I also want to breed a very, very specific horse. Let me describe him:-

Name: Prince
Race name: Prince Of Finland (don't ask why, I just want that name)
Breed: Thoroughbred
Birth year: 2012
Height: 17.2hh
Colour: mahogany bay
Markings: a big blaze like Angel (who is supposed to be his mum xD), three white coronets and a white sock ont eh foot without a white coronet
Achievements: TWELVE Group-One race wins (group/grade 1 is the highest and richest races), FOUR melbourne cups, a breeders cup, american triple crown, cox plate, all the big english races and the Irish St. Leger.

Dont want much in Angels baby, really....

Me, I'd love to run the cross country course at the Kentucky Horse Park.
I've also dreamed of having my horse(s) in my own backyard and of owning a Gypsy Vanner.
I know that not much, but that's what I'd love to do.

I would love to try saddleseat and polo :P. I always think polo looked interesting and my instructor rode saddleseat her whole life. I would love to ride a fresian , a gypsy vanner , a norwegian fjords , or a tennesee walking horse. I love fresians cause of their size , dramatic appearance and their color. I love gypsy vanners because their big, gorgeous horses. I love norwegian fjords because before i rode when i was in 2nd grade I was flipping through a book about horses and saw these fuzzy norwegian fjords and was like "OMG this is totally the horse i want" I said. Andddddd like 6 years later i feel the same way. I want to try a tennesee walking horse because I have never ridden a gaited horse.

Jump my horse in a show is my dream. I'm still working on doing walk/trot show but my dream is to ride him over fences in a show.
Property: a 9+ acre rolling hills ranch with an indoor and outdoor arena, round pen, big turn-outs and beautiful barn with a huge covered patio area and outdoor fireplace and inside barn a big sitting room in it with deep leather couches and a flat panel tv with kitchenette so everyone can hang-out after riding and also can be used for lessons when it's raining to watch instructional videos or watch each other ride from taped lessons to discuss.
I would love the buy the adjacent property where I ride now and build covered arena so days like these we can still ride and turn our horses out so they aren't nutjobs like they are now.
