The other Bucket list, 25 things every rider should experience

1) Catch your grey/cream/appy other light color horse on show morning and find he hasn't slept in a pile of poop all night.

2) Set out for a multi horse trail ride on time because no one had a last minute crisis.

2) Ride the walk trot dressage test and not forget the test!

3) Arriving in the ring for your class without a subtle green slime stain on your breeches.

4) Worm all your horses without swallowing so much as a drop yourself.

5) Manage to get you horse groomed in the cross ties without him pooping once yippee no clear up duty.

20 more to find people, and

6: manage to go into the tack store without buying anything you didn't go there for in the first place.

Mods, grant me the serenity to see the opinions I cannot change, courage to change the ones that should change, and the wisdom to spot the trolls.

8. Manage a solo trail ride on a greenish (on solo rides anyway) horse without attending a rodeo at the same time.

Sounds simple..apparently not on ST, who I thought was deadbroke to trails/road rides.

10) get to ride a REAL quality horse, and be complimented on how well you got it going.

11) be able to ACTUALLY find your riding gloves without turning the tack shed upside down first.

12) have a friend who owns a tack store, and when they close it down, they offer you the pick of anything and everything you want from the store, for some nominal amount, or better, free!

A CLEAN SLATE FOR THE FUTURE

hehe.. Already get a discount! That kind of happens when your mom marries a guy who works at the feed store..

15) NOT getting covered in a layer of dirt when you groom your horse..

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

16) Not bathing your horse and taking a shower at the same time.

I gave my boy a bath tonight. I also gave myself a bath, lol. And it didn't help that some water got in his ears, so he was shaking his body more than usual. I think every droplet landed on me.
