Avventura was nice enough to like a post about Rodney’s exercises [Blow Winds]. One of her standing pages is a bucket list. Since I have already gone over my competitive goals [Where To?], here is my non-competitive equine bucket list:
+ Compete abroad. Not so much as a competition goal, but more as a slice of life in a foreign country. Of course, I’d want to win a ribbon. What a cool souvenir. Book idea. Pictures of ribbons from around the world, the past, & major competitions. I’d buy it.
+ See the Western States Trail Ride, i.e. the Tevis Cup.
+ Take a mule ride into the Grand Canyon.
+See a Spanish Riding School performance in Vienna, although I have been lucky enough to see two performances in the US & one practice session in Vienna. Each time I know more about riding and am more impressed with what they do. If you ever get the chance, it’s worth a bit of a drive. How often does one get excited about something & have it be better than what one expected?
+ Ride a trained Lipizzaner, a kind, understanding one.
+ See horses on an airplane during a nice safe flight in which the horses ate the snacks & enjoyed the inflight movie.
+ Ride a dressage schoolmaster to see what all the fuss is about.
What’s on your list?
