This is a great thread! I don't have a bucket list because I can never think of things I would like to do before I die. So instead I have what I call my backwards bucket list (things to do before you're born...? or after you die...? lol). It's things that I've done that I'm glad I got the chance to do. I kind of like it better than having a bucket list because then I'm greatful for all the things I've gotten to do so far. It's not actually written down (I've been meaning to do that) but It's pretty long so I won't post it right now.

Dynamite. - Love #12...I'll give you mounting-bareback-from-the-ground lessons! (Same to LoveTheSaddlebreds, too) I manage to literally LAUNCH myself onto a 15.3 hand horse's back... that is, if he stands still and lets me run and jump on him!
Amba1027 - good point!

1. Place with 2-Pak in a show... any show, any placing! X3
2. Run at least 15 seconds on barrels! Both Tanner and Magic are down to 20 seconds already!
3. Get Bandit and Dante to drive as a team.
4. Show Bandit and/or Dante in a driving competition... either singly or in a team.
5. Have a decent sized piece of property, with a barn for my horses, big open pastures, and an arena. And maybe even live in a loft above the barn.
6. Figure out how to get on my horses bareback from the ground! DX (The one drawback of my loving tall horses... I'm too short to get on them!)
7. Teach 2-Pak to lay down so I can climb on his back that way! (People always tell me I look like a contortionist when I'm trying to get in his saddle.)
8. Finish teaching Bandit to offer his hoof when someone says "Nice to meet you!" He's well on his way, but he doesn't lift his foot high enough. :3
9. (This is more or less a joke that I have with a few friends, so don't take it seriously. :p) Buy myself a blue roan Clydesdale mare, and teach her to run barrels until she's getting awesome times, then take her on the rodeo circuit.
10. Own a blue Roan Clydesdale... and afford to keep it!

That's pretty much it.

1. To be able to keep my horse through college and beyond, never have to sell him
2. To have unshakable riding confidence, not get nervous when my horse spooks or when mounting
3. To make it to second level dressage (at least)
4. Make some piece of artwork and sell it
5. Find a perfect, flawless man (impossible I know)
6. To turn my horse into a masterpiece of proper muscling and training
7. Write a letter to everyone I know expressing how much I truly appreciate them because I can't in person
8. Walk my dogs everyday, they deserve it and I'm a lazy jerk
