I have no regrets or wishes, I could go tomorrow. Is that a bad thing or a good thing?

Get my first horse.. :)
I guess if I were going to die soon, as I'm sure these things won't have value to me when I am older, I would like to: 1) Jump Diesel 2) Jump a verticle with Gonzo 3) Jump a full course with no refusals with Jorge 3) Take Galen on a trail without getting scared and 4) Ride Pinnochio without tensing & freaking out ;)

This thread is great.

I'd have to say...
1. Own or ride a Friesian horse(Preferably own)
2. Learn Show Jumping, Cross Country, and Freestyle Dressage(and be good enough to compete)
3. Gallop along the beach
4. Do a 6 month to a year endurance ride in Europe for charity
5. Gallop bareback through a field that leads to nowhere
6. Get better at drawing/sketching horses(to a professional level), and animal photography of all kinds
7. Ride the canyons in Colorado or Nevada during the summer
8. Experience actually seeing wild horses
9. Have a small, local rescue and training facility for horses
10. Actually find my perfect horse, my companion for life.(I don't and haven't owned my own horse yet... ugh)
