    Default What's Your Dream?

    As the title states, what's your dream? The thread on Olympic Dreams got me thinking about it.


    Mine? I want to qualify for the AECs. Then go. Then kick ass Also, to maybe someday go Training.

    My goals are to get to the AECs, eventually event at the * level, and do well in some higher level jumper classes.

    Training 3-Day long format Event. I WILL get there (well, besides volunteering, which I've done for four year already, LOL). It's been a long and educational journey, with more than its fair share of heartbreak. But I'm not giving up!

    It used to be to do a long format CCI*. However, I doubt it will be an option by the time I am ready. So for now, I have to say going Prelim.

    For my trainer to take my greenie up the levels. As far as he is capable. So far we think he will go at least Prelim but I would love him to go higher!

    To be one of those riders that people dread seeing in their division. Not because they have to contend with my nut-job horses in warmup, but because they know they'll have to settle for second place.

    But seriously, it would be dreamy to be a force to reckon with in dressage. And it's an achievable dream, but not one I really feel like I need to go out and grab by the neck. I have plenty of fun with my scores of 40.

    So I guess I would have to say I'm living my dream--the one I had as a kid: my own little farm with a few horses that I can take to horse shows and have fun with.

    To be able--physically, mentally, and financially--to enjoy riding as much in 30 years as I do now. That's the joy of a sport where you never 'age out,' right?

    In the shorter term, a T3D would be awesome too! Though I feel pretty far from that at the moment.

    To be Mr. Hondas wife.


    To make a living involving horses again. THAT might be coming true... Job interview tomorrow at a dressage barn. Wish me many *jingles*.

    *jingles* to all of you that you come to live your dreams.

    My dream is to have Tess and me well enough to compete for a complete season. If that does not happen, then well enough to go for trail rides and enjoy each others' company.

    Right now I'd be thrilled to just finish a BN horse trials. Baby steps.

    My current dream is just to own my own horse and be able to ride him/her 4/5 days a week.

    Other than that just to become the best horsewoman/rider that I can be and go to my first event!
