What's on your "horse bucket list"?
Just for fun, what's on your "horse bucket list"? Wha tkinds of things would you like to do or try before your horse days are over?

I'm all the time adding to my little list. I don't have big aspirations or anything, just some things I'd eventually like to try. I'm no big horse rider, just mostly a trail rider for fun.

Here are some of mine in no particular order:

Learn to drive a cart/teach my horse to drive
Horse camping (I know not a really big deal, but something I've never done)
Compete in some type of horse show or speed event
Ride my own horse on a beach--not sure how I will accomplish that since I live 2 states away from the closest ocean!
Multi-day packing trip
Try mounted shooting
Carry a flag for a parade, rodeo, etc.
Cattle drive, calf branding/vaccinating, roundup or something like that
Be a part of a historical reenactment/show/rendezvous/etc.

So share yours!

I only have one thing on any bucket list, and that is to gallop bareback through a field of yellow flowers.

Ride on the beach.
Ride a Novice cross country course.
Get a 70% dressage score at any level.
Carry a flag in a rodeo or horse show.
Jump 4 feet.
Ride a canter-pirouette.
Visit the Spanish Riding School in Vienna.
Meet Stacey Westfall.
Ride a 17 second barrel run.
Own a warmblood.
Participate in a clinic by a top rider in any discipline (except Saddleseat, lol)

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