    Since I'm old enough to have done just about everything on the lists above there is only one thing left.....To ride full out across a golf course, do a couple of slides & turns and in general mess the dang thing up. I'm going to wait till I'm older so the police think I'm just senile and don't arrest me. It's the simple things in life that's for sure.

    Here is my bucket list, mainly things I want to accomplish with Cinny

    Compete at level 1 in dressage and do reasonably well (65% or better)

    Successfully compete in a trail class with decent placing

    Teach Cinny some sort of fun trick like fetching a ball or painting

    Find a youth in my area to take him 4H for a season or more

    Compete in the "mane challenge" (a competition at NE horse expo where teams compete in showmanship, trail, pleasure, driving, speed event, etc to prove the versatility of their team/horse breed), with a team of "solid" paint horses.

    Successfully complete a "trail challenge" of 20 miles or more.

    -I love old castles and horses. Over in Ireland they have a horesback castle tour thing going. Would love to do that.

    -Ride trails all over the world. Bonus if it involves over night camping on the trail. There's just to much gorgeous country out there that I need to see first hand.

    Ride into the sunset with no boundries and seemingly no end. As far as the eye can see. Yeah that'll probably never happen :P

    That is great! I think you've made a new one for my bucket list.

    I've done most of the horse related things on my list. My next big goal is freestyle reining at Congress. Already have the song picked out & the run envisioned in my head. Now just to wait until my little man is a few years older :)

    I know I'll think of more later. Some of these aren't realistic, but hey, it's something to shoot for.

    Hooray for you, Equine! One thing already crossed off the list. Already making dreams come true! Now just book your tickets to Vienna...

    Cinny, call up your local 4H extension office & ask to talk to some of the leaders in your area for horse 4H. I'm sure there's a leader who knows of a kid dying to do 4H but who doesn't have a horse. A gift of using your horse would be a godsend to some of those kids!

    Thanks for all the cool responses. I wish I was closer to some of you. There aren't many things I could help with, other than trail riding & learning to pull a trailer. If we were closer to each other, I'd help!
