HI Spy: What's on your equestrian bucket list?

What horsey adventures do you hope to have during your life as a rider?

What is on your equestrian bucket list?Have you ever stumbled upon a photo or video of horses and riders in some exotic location and thought, "I'm going to ride there one day"? When watching your equestrian idols, do you feel determined to find out first hand what it's like to win at the big shows? Does watching someone like Stacy Westfall ride without tack inspire you to do the same with your own horse if it's the last thing you ever do?

Maybe you've simply always wanted to see the Chincoteague Ponies swim across the channel or find out what it's like to ride a tölting Icelandic horse

There are so many things to do as an equestrian that you could fill up several lifetimes with different adventures. But which ones make the list of experiences you want to have before you kick the bucket?

For some inspiration, check out A Rider's Bucket List. Then click "Submit a Comment" below and tell us what makes the number one spot on your equestrian bucket list. Some responses may be selected for a future issue of Horse Illustrated!

I think the number one item on my bucket list is to buy a colt, break it myself and train it to such a high level that it would win a world championship, and be ridden bareback and bridleless.

My equestrian bucket list is pretty big. I would love to ride on the beach of some tropical island, explore Europe on horseback, ride an Icelandic horse in Iceland, ride in the Olympics, own a horse, and most importantly, have a strong, unbreakable bond with my horse.

The number one riding place on my bucket list is the beach on a summer day. I'd love to canter along the shoreline and afterwards take my horse for a swim!

What I really want to do is ride alongside the ocean on my horse during a sunset. I've seen movies and pictures with that stuff and it looks like so much fun.
