    The Dream..... someday

    My Dream:

    Someday, I am going to have enough land (and money) and experiance to open a horse sanctuary/training centre, where I can take in abused, neglected and problem horses, so I can rehabilitate them and sell them on to loving homes. I want to be able to save horses from ignorant or cruel homes and give them a future. I'd love to be able to have 100 or so spare acres of pasture to take on all the horses that are permanantly injured, unridable or 'companion horses' so that they can just live out their days in peace and happiness in a natural state.

    I want to teach people how to get the most out of their horses, by handling, training principles so as to pass on the wisdom.

    I want to be able to deal with the problems of horses so that they can be sold on and have a future, rather than just be written off as a lost cause.

    Even just to save one horse, would be so worth it. So many horrible stories about beautiful horses (looks and temperment) that are written off, especially in this economic climate.

    Might sound a bit naive but I can't think of anything else I want to do...

    That's exactly what I want to do. I would have a huge equestrian estate and make it into a training and rehab facility for horses on their way to the kill pen. It would also be for off the track Thoroughbreds and Standardbreds. I'd have a whole staff of top-of-the-line trainers and everything. And it would double as a riding academy and I'd use rescued horses as the lesson horses.

    After I win the lottery... lol Don't we all say that?

    ^^ Ya'll two are not the only ones who have that dream. I even when through and hand drew (to scale) my dream barn with a ruler and pencil in extreme detail. LOL. I even know exactly where I want each bridle rack and what kind of auto waterers I want in each stall. How silly is that? I want a few thousand acres so that I could have plenty of land for however many horses I decided to get. I meant to actually go buy a lotto ticket this week cause the jackpot was $242 million but then I forgot and somebody else won it. :,,( I may just have to go for the other one which is $48 million right now.

    Thats not silly, I'm pretty sure I've done that myself too!! It's nice to know theres other people out there with the same idea! Hopefully some horses will be in with a chance...

    I think the worst part would be knowing you can't save all of them. I'd want to buy every sad and sorry horse I ever came across, I guess you have to be a bit realistic too. I'd be at auctions and stuff wanting to save EVERY horse.

    Might start buying lotto tickets too!
