    What's your horsey ambition?

    All of us equestrians have our ambitions - both short-term and long-term. What's yours?

    Mine is a long-term one - I want to breed Arabians and Quarter Horses. I also want to train and coach in a wide variety of disciplines. My riding coach/barn owner is a breeder of Arabians and Quarter Horses, so thankfully I can learn from her.

    Share your equestrian goals, ambitions, hopes, dreams... anything!

    Well, I am only 18 and I am already taking my B.H.S Exams. I want to go all the way up to (and beyond) my Stage 4 exams.

    I would love to just be a well known, GOOD, experienced trainer. And I also want to compete high level (unsure where)

    That's very cool!

    My long term goal is to be able to ride without fear and have my horse on my own property.

    I want to have my own land with horses on it, and I want to start my own Equine Assisted Psychotherapy program.

    Individual riding goals, I just want to continue improving myself and my horses as time goes on. I love trail riding, so I would love to live near trails that I could frequent.

    I wanted to be a trainer. So I became one and took on awful, horrible horses for retraining. They came out to be good mounts afterwords, but my body now suffers from the constant stress of being bucked around with, bolted with, reared on, ran over, drug, and everything else. Sure, that's what comes with horses, but I took on way more with retraining dangerous horses.

    (Disclaimer: I didn't BREAK or cowboy any horse, the horses I got had already been broken and cowboyed and that's the reason they were the way they were)

    I don't do it anymore. Sure, I was successful and I helped a lot of horses and owners, but my back is way screwed up from taking that abuse.

    What I want to do short term is get my mare (who is an awful, horrible amish trained horse) correctly retrained in reining manouvers, put some cutting experience on her with flag chasing, and get to team penning. She would love it. I would love it. Just gotta do the training first.

    My long term goal is to start a carriage service. I worked for one about 5 years ago and adored it. I plan on offering carriage services to parks, weddings, special occasions and also funerals (black horse to pull the casket to the site, if a military death, have a horse lead with backwards boots).

    I will also have a team of drafts specifically for horse pull competitions. Its a dieing sport and I want to help keep it alive.

    Yup, I hear you. It's amazing what we do to ourselves. Imagine the fun I had when I was diagnosed with degenerative arthritis is discs four and five at 26 because of the trauma I had from training rank horses...

    Now, I went out and some two incredible stallions to cross with my mares, and looking forward to producing some fantastic show horse potentials!
    I'd love to get my one guy back in the show ring, and plan to start halter training the two year old myself and getting him into the ring next year.

    But, as long as I'm having fun with my ponies, it's all good.
