15 Ideas For Your Equestrian Bucket List


We all have goals and aspirations, things we have always dreamed of doing or hope we could experience at least once. As equestrians, our horses are in the middle of our lives and therefore, our dreams.

We want to achieve our goals with them, experience new things with them, and, of course, discover new adventures with them.

At this point, a simple bucket list can help you to encourage yourself to make your dreams come true with your loyal companion. How to start creating your equestrian bucket list and what to add in it? 


How to create your bucket list?


You can simply get a paper and pen then, start writing your goals down. You can just mark each one after you make that dream come true.

If you would like to make your bucket list a bit more professional, get yourself a bullet journal and start writing your goals.

Write one goal on each page and leave the rest of the page empty. When you achieve that goal, don’t forget to take a photo and attach it on that special page.

After that, you can write your feelings about that experience under the picture! This way, you will get a bucket list journal full of your adventures with your four-legged buddy.
