Question Share your "Bucket List" - What would you like to do before you kick the bucket?

Okay, so I would like to know what 25 things you guys would like to do before you “kick the bucket”. I’ll share some of mine, and then lets see what you want to do!
1. Adopt and train my own BLM Mustang.
2. Raise a Friesian stud colt.
3. Adopt and train an OTTB.
4. Ride a trained reining horse.
5. Go horse camping and swim in a pond/lake with a horse.
6. Train/breed my own horses.
7. Run a well-known barn facility.
8. Complete a show jumping course on a fancy jumper.
9. Ride a hunter over some fences.
10.Rope some cattle and practice some cutting.

I’ll probably add more as you add your lists, but lets see what everyone plans to do!
