And Today's Fantasy Is....

CHIO Aachen.  Aachen, Germany. 
Umm, yes please, I'd like some of that.

I've been watching CHIO Aachen this morning and have come to a conclusion. At least once before I depart this earth I would like to jump around a course at Aachen.

Mind you, the fences would have to be muuuuuuuuuucccchhhhhh smaller.

Do you think they have an Itty Bitty Jumpers class at Aachen?

And the Sainted Mare's boo-boo would have to be 100% healed.  That goes without saying.

But as far as Bucket List items go, it's not a bad one, don't you think?

If money and jobs and all that other crapola that normally gets in the way was not a factor, where in the world would you most like to ride? 


  1. Gad..where to start?!
    Okay, assuming I was built to live the life of a jockey [and had the balls, because, lets face it, they are the bravest of the brave, ya?] I'd race ride in Australia. Not only are the tracks beautiful, the wildlife is unmatched. I have a slight obsession with reptiles.

    Now lets jump back to reality to my present body, lmao!
    I'll need a draft horse to cart my 500 lbs around, and..
    I would like to go to Guatemala. And Fiji. Yep. No real eventing dreams going on in this noggin'. I'd just like to ride through the forests and see nature.

    1. Wow-- I like your fantasies! May borrow them, if that's ok by you. And yes, raceriders have enormous cajones, especially the jump jockeys.

  2. I agree, riding at Aachen would be amazing... But I have a thing for Spruce Meadows..

    1. Oooooooh, yeah, Spruce. THAT one is DEFINITELY on my bucket list, but that bank looks a bit dicey. LOL Have a feeling I'd be doing a log roll, sans horse, down that!
