Horse Bucket List:)

Hey! I just thought this could be a cool idea! Just put down what you've always wanted to do or experience that's horse related! I thought it would be interesting ;)
I'll start;
I have always wanted to own a OTTB and retrain it, doing all the work myself:)

I have always wanted to show in dressage. I have a dressage saddle and have tried teaching myself and my horse some things, but I just don't think it will happen as far as showing. Any trainers are over an hour away from me :(

My wish isn't very exciting to anyone except me. I would love to be able to ride again on a regular basis - on some really nice trails. Maybe even go horsecamping. Sadly, hubby has pretty much given up on riding. Sons in law keep promising me a mounting block so I can ride whenever I want to, but that hasn't happened yet. (I need an oversized - uber sturdy mounting block)

I've got a pretty big wishlist, so I'll apologize in advance:

-Be a spectator at Rolex one year
-Be a spectator at an Olympic Games for the dressage tests
-Qualify for regionals next show season
-Qualify for Grand Nationals in the next few years
-Somehow afford to truck my girl to Grand Nationals
-Get to at least third level in dressage in my lifetime
-Retire and own and manage a barn one day

--Go to the Kentucky Derby (which may happen in 2013)
--Go to a National Hunt race meeting (steeplechase) in the UK, at Cheltenham Racecourse

I'm still thinking of my actually riding bucket list.

I've got a ton! ...but I'll just put the ones that top my list.
-learn different disciplines (jumping, dressage, reining are what I had in mind )
-qualify for the NFR on a horse that I raised & trained
-ride my horse on the beach somewhere

Strength lies within the heart but the strength to trust lies between the horse and his rider.
