What is your ultimate horse dream/ambition?

What is your ultimate horse dream/ambition if money, time, etc. wasn't a factor?

I would like to settle down on 8-10 acres of my own land with my hubby & 3-4 horses where we can trail ride whenever we want. A simple country life would be nice. I would also like to train a foal from birth to adult. Like my Great Uncle, I would also like to take in some rescue/abandoned horses and give them a great life.

My dreams are simple and not that elaborate, I know, but it would make me so happy to have them come true.

My dream is to have a small plot of land with 1-2 show horses, Gypsy Vanners to be specific, and the rest rescue horses. And, even though this isn't horses, I want a few show Dalmatians and a few rescued Border Collies and mixes too.

To own a horse
Id like to own a horse and keep it on a property close to my house.

If I am not riding I'm thinking about horses, and if I am not thinking about horses I'm riding

I'd want a nice facility that I could use for my own personal use and to set up my own veterinary practice. Doesn't have to be anything fancy, just enough land for me and my animals (so farm animals and household ones ) and my patients and be away from people and towns. If/when I'd retire from being a vet I'd want the barn to be able to accommodate training horses because that's a second career choice for me and a hobby.

I would also like to train my own horse from birth and probably keep a few rescues around and work with them or even just foster. :)

Oh man. I would perfer to move out west. Maybe to Montana or Wyoming (moving out there next year) And I would love to have 20-100 acre property for my horses. Have no more then 10 horses, and do a lot of trail riding and cow work.

That would be the life.

Ride a racehorse around a track.

I have a need for speed lol. I don't know that doing that is an actual possibility though.

haha well I think your best option is to become a jockey or exercise rider.

OR

Get an off track Thoroughbred and sneak into a race track at night and go.

I think I like the second option better haha.

I have an OTTB and getting him into a full gallop once in while is needed. Its insane lol.

If nothing is stopping and I don't have to worry about finances. I would really love to ride cross country or a section of the trail Lewis and Clark took. Just me, some friends, my dog and a good days leisurely ride.

More realistically. I would settle for a bit of land so I could take some of my parents horses in and ease the burden on them. Particularly in the winter.

Your dream sounds pretty perfect to me! That's my "realistic" dream, owning land with space for a few horses and some hills to ride one.

My wow-that-would-be-incredible dream is to ride Sam in one of those epic trail rides across the Western US. Through mountains and streams with a pack mule :)
