1 Gallop on the beach. (I gallop Casey on the beach once or twice a month)
2 Win a blue ribbon, even if it’s for the egg and spoon race!
3 Enjoy an evening of equestrian theater, from major touring productions such as Cavalia to local performance troupes.
4 Try your hand at cattle work. Find out what it means when they say a horse is “cowy.”
5 Jump! From crossrails to cross-country obstacles, experience the thrill of soaring over fences.
6 Fall off and get right back on again. Conquering fear is empowering.
7 See the majestic white Lipizzan stallions at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.
8 Come to a sliding stop on a well-trained reining horse.
9 Take a lesson with your equestrian idol, _________ (you fill in the blank.)
10 Nurse a horse through a crisis and back to full health
.
11 Experience the smooth ride of a gaited horse.
12 Watch the horses come through the Head of the Lake on cross-country day at the Rolex Kentucky Three-Day Event.
13 Have the courage to do the right thing for your horse, even when it’s not easy.
14 Attend the Kentucky Derby dressed to the nines—including hat! (but I am not a very big fan of watching horse races so I probably wont ever)
15 Tackle a trail accessible only by horseback and enjoy the view.
16 Take your dream vacation on horseback.

17 Master the sitting trot.
18 Ride a fine-tuned horse in your discipline of choice, be it dressage schoolmaster or barrel champ.
19 Watch polo. Even better, try your hand at it!

20 Feed, muck, groom, ride. Repeat daily.
21 Wake up to a whinny every morning.
22 Fly down the track on a Thoroughbred.
23 Meet one of your favorite famous horses in person.

24 Ride bareback, bridleless ... or both!
25 Share a bond with your horse that’s deeper than words

12 to go! Bold ones are ones I need to do.

Ooooooo! Nice list! I still have yet to gallop on a beach, but I'm going to try to make it happen. It's nice because I live 5 minutes away from Lake Ontario! But I'd just have to find a beach they would let me gallop on.....that's a problem. Maybe I'll ask my grandma and grandpa, they have beach front property! Lol
