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.  :)

    1. I didn't know you liked the SCA too!! Cool! This may be really silly but one of the things I'm looking most forward to is designing and making Chrome's barding. :D

    2. My spouse is into the sca as well. :)

  2. awesome list!! somehow i suspect that you and Chrome will eventually accomplish quite a few of these too!

    1. Aww thanks for the vote of confidence! I sure hope so!!

  3. Whata list - have a ball ticking them off over time ☺

    1. Thanks! I hope I can tick them all off. It will definitely be fun trying.
