    I'm from Australia and I've always wanted to see the world - especially Europe. Which I am doing! I am living in Copenhagen, Denmark while studying and every few weeks I go traveling. In a few weeks I am going to Ireland! A month or so ago I went to Berlin, and when I have finished my study I plan on going to England, Scotland, France, Germany, the Czech Republic, Hungary and Italy! Maybe a few more too. Then, if I have enough money left over, I plan to stop by America on my way home! I've also been to Thailand, Vietnam, China, Hong Kong and New Zealand. There are still heaps of places I haven't been - but now I am starting to see places. And I have travelled around a fair chunk of Australia.

    Actually, since being here my dreams have changed. I've been chasing something for a long time now, something I always thought would be over the horizon, at the next place, and its not. Where ever you go after while its just like the last place. You still get up, have breakfast, and do your daily routine just scenery changes.

    So when I go back I am going to settle down for once, live closer to my family so I can visit them more than a couple times a year. I guess that is my dream for now, find happiness in a place, not to run away, and to start to really grow and nurture relationships. Become part of a community. Hopefully buy a house eventually, grow my own food, get a nice, safe horse that I can have some fun on, I don't really care about competitions anymore, funny how things change.

    Finish my degree, get into a PhD, fall in love, have a family. You know - the standard dreams. I've never really had a family and I think it would be nice.

    My dreams to travel, well they were intense so I went travelling. But so many people make excuses not to do what they really want. They put it off for their whole life. When I was 17 I wanted to move to Sydney, the "big city", so I packed up and left. Then I wanted to move to New Zealand, so I did, I've always lived by my dreams. I don't regret things like others do.

    So I challenge you all - start doing it now.

    Emma Furia - if you come to Australia you can work on a working station here if you're interested. They'll pay and give you food and a place to stay. There will be heaps of other travelers here too to meet. If you're too young start saving now and go when you finish school! If you've finished - go now!

    Bracken Bramley - The good thing about one day events is they start at a low level! Find one around your local area in a few months and sign up! You can build your own x-country jumps for practice, and for the lowest levels the dressage would be pretty simple.

    Jessabel - Plan a holiday to the beach where you can bring your horse. Winning the lottery isn't easy but maybe your local tack store would be happy to host a talk where various people can come and talk about horse care. A free event, maybe even one with free gifts, so people who aren't that knowledgable will come and learn. Perhaps think about saving for a smaller property, you might not save hundreds of horses, but a handful of horses is still a handful of lives saved.

    My Horses Onador - Start researching all training, go to seminars and practice training where you can.

    Bright Eyes - You have big dreams, I guess with your horse you could start working up for endurance :P

    Britt - I am on exchange at the moment and its great. Look into it now because the process takes at least six months. Its worth doing and if you don't like it you can come back!

    Drafty-Aires - Well you seem on the right track! Grats!

    MHFoundation Quarters - when I was traveling Australia I met this couple, they weren't that old, maybe 50 or 60 or so. Anyway they travel 100km a day and they stop and stay in that place and see what's its like. They might stay a few days. They had an RV and so many stories. They had been traveling for years.Travel when you can! Go every six months or something to an overseas destination, if you can't, every year. Make it regular. No list of places to travel is too big, unless it includes North Korea or something because you can't get in there :P

    I don't think there is such a thing as too old Stan. It's all in the individual. I knew an amazing gentleman who was still starting colts & working cattle well into his 80s and better at that age than most trainers a 1/3 of his age.

    I want to travel everywhere and try out different lifestyles. That's why I'm going to become a travelling nurse. After I'm satisfyed with my travels, I want to settle down and plant my roots somewhere close to my family. I want to own a stable and help troubled teens. That's pretty much it. I'd be very happy with myself if I can accomplish all of the above.

    But something small that I've always dreamed of is galloping through fields. Someday I will.

    My dream is to become a Trauma Nurse (wanted to become a Paramedic but there are other things I'd like to do besides work :P). My plan is to work in the ER for a few years and then work in the ICU. I really want to travel to the UK one day. I'd also love to be able to go to conventions, concerts, big events. I'm very picky about what events I want to go to so that helps narrow things down and make thigns more realistic for me :).

    Originally I wanted to have a career in horses, but I realized it just wasn't realistic for me. So now my plan is to leave horses on the side as a way to get away from everything! The stress of work, life, bills, etc. I never want horses to become something where I'm saying 5 years later, "I really don't want to go to the barn today!"

    My dream...a rather simple one I suppose. I want to own my horse one day. I'd love to do at least one proper job dressage competition in my life. I even have my own dream horse :P He's a gelding, between 15.2 - 16.2, aged between 7 and 15, and an Arabian, TB or Warmblood. And his name shall be Cooper.

    Career wise? I'd love to work as a lecturer in a top notch University.

    Family wise? Married/in a relationship with a wonderful man or woman. I would love to have a son one day. His name will be Nathaniel Ryan [surname].

    Yeah. That's me.

    I am lucky that I feel really good about where I am right now.
    Non horsey....I love traveling, especially traveling to scuba dive. This Dec/Jan, I will be going on the trip of a lifetime. I will be on a boat in Indonesia exploratory diving in areas that have never been dived before. If the pirates don't get me, I'll show photos of the neat stuff we find. Heck, we might find a new pygmy seahorse we can name....

    Horsey? Well, I'm lucky to have achieved pretty much what I set out to do. Things always look good from a distance, though. When I got there, I wasn't too sure I liked how things were done. After a couple of good years, I was well done with it. I left and never looked back. Now, I get my pleasure training horses and helping my students reach for their dreams. My coaches gave their all to me, now it's my turn to return the favor.
