We went on a 3-day horse trekking trip around the Ring of Kerry in Ireland. Once in a lifetime experience, I loved every minute of it!

This is my favorite shot from the whole trip- met some of the kindest, most honest horses I've ever been around. The way they scrambled up (and down) the wet, rocky hills blew me away. Just give them their heads and they do the rest...Getting to the beach was just a bonus.

The scenery is gorgeous and the drafty butts are pretty cute too! I'm going to have to add that to the list of places to visit someday.

2 Win a blue ribbon, even if it’s for the egg and spoon race!

I've won a couple real nice ribbons! Makes me proud.

5 Jump! From crossrails to cross-country obstacles, experience the thrill of soaring over fences.

I've jumped a bit. I want to do some cross country before I kick it.

6 Fall off and get right back on again. Conquering fear is empowering.

It really is! I got bucked off my a mule once, laughed, and got back on. It was awesome.

10 Nurse a horse through a crisis and back to full health.

I've done this twice with the same horse. A bowed tendon the first time, and an almost fatal azoturia attack the next.

11 Experience the smooth ride of a gaited horse.

Daily!

15 Tackle a trail accessible only by horseback and enjoy the view.

Many times!

18 Ride a fine-tuned horse in your discipline of choice, be it dressage schoolmaster or barrel champ.

The nicest horse I ever rode was a multi-national champion competitive trail horse named Coco. I competed her on my first Open level ride

20 Feed, muck, groom, ride. Repeat daily.

Did this daily during the summer.

21 Wake up to a whinny every morning.

A couple times on horse camping trips.

24 Ride bareback, bridleless ... or both!

I bareback all the time! Bridleless only in the round pen.

25 Share a bond with your horse that’s deeper than words

Me and my horse are pretty close. <3

Of the 25 listed, 12 I have no desire to do and quite likely never will. Of the remaining 13 only 2 are left on my bucket list. Guess I have different desires than many.
