TOABH: Wish We Could
The next installment in Beka's blog hop is: Let's pretend that financial restrictions don't exist and logistics isn't a nightmare. If you could do anything with your Ponykins, what would you do?
I LOVE this blog hop! There are so many things I want to try with Chrome!
Dressage - I've been fascinated with dressage since I was a teenager and I loved the lessons I took. I miss it. It's so fun to learn and I really want Chrome and I to learn more together.
Competitive Trail Riding - I LOVE trail riding! So this is an obvious choice for something fun to do. I don't really have much of a desire to compete, but I think I could handle CTR (stage fright is less of a thing here hehe).
Driving - I have always wanted to learn to drive a horse!! I finally got the chance to ride in a horse drawn cart last year and I loved it. Chrome and I could have so much fun with this!
Camping - I want to take Chrome camping! Horses from sunup to sundown. Trails all day. Oh yeah!
SCA - The SCA is something my husband got me interested in. I was so excited to learn they have equestrian events and ever since I saw it I want to do it!!
Ride on the beach - Who doesn't want to ride on the beach?? It looks like so much fun!
Archery - I've always wanted to learn archery and doing it on horseback would make it even better.
Working cattle - Specifically I would like to go on a cattle drive, but even just introducing him to cattle would be fun. I'm willing to try anything. :D
Polo - I got to see polo last year too. I used to pretend to play it with golf clubs and a baseball when I was a kid hehe. It would be fun to do it on Chrome too. Gotta love an all around horse!
Parade - What kid has seen horses in parades and not wanted to do it? I want to!!
Fox Hunting - This looks like so much fun! Realistically I'd probably have to take some jumping lessons because I've only jumped a foot or so over natural obstacles on the trail and if the horse over jumps I have no idea how to stay with them.
Sidesaddle - This looks like fun and it's an excuse to wear a pretty dress and ride horses hehe. Yeah I'm a farm girl, tomboy, but I still love pretty dresses. It's probably the novelty since I rarely wear them haha.
Mounted Shooting - I've been shooting guns (at targets) since I was a little kid. I'm not sure why it's so much fun, but I love it. Once again adding horses makes it even more fun right?
Gallop on a racetrack - I have no idea why I want to do this, but when I was a kid I wanted to be a jockey so bad (haha and grew to 5'10") and I still think it would be really cool to gallop on a track (on Chrome, not a racehorse).
Working Equitation - I have always admired the power and agility of bullfighting horses, but I hate bullfighting. When I learned about Working Equitation I was immediately in love with it. I want to do it someday!!
So yeah there are a LOT of things I still want to do. I don't know if I'll get to do them all with Chrome, but I sure hope so. Having no financial restrictions would be helpful hehe. Then I could just focus on my confidence. :)
