31 Photos Prior to 31

After doing my 30 before 30, I decided a year long birthday challenge was something fun to add to my yearly blog goals. However, I didn’t want to do another horse bucket list this year. Therefore, I asked readers to help me come up with photography ideas that they would like to see on the blog.

It was fun reading everyone’s suggestions! I took all of them to heart, and added some of my own as well. Some were modified slightly to make them less specific and therefore within the realm of possibility. Now that the holidays are over and I’ve had some time to get into my grove for the year, I’ve compiled those photo suggestions into my 31 Photos Prior to 31 list!

I will update this post regularly with the appropriate photos as well as feature them on their own blog post when appropriate.

  1. I’m not a plane ride away and our barn could knock out several of those – palamino, mini donkey, western if you grab the right boarder, Friesian, horse near water (we have a creek), we’ll have a mare and foal march-ish, have a weanling now. 😀

    And there are minis if you want to bring Simon LOL

    I have a couple on my 101 in 1001 currently: a working cattle ranch (we could knock out your western one together if we can find somewhere!), senior horse project…

  2. Yay!! If you buy the plane ticket to Cali, I can help you out by: cantering bareback and bridleless, through a water complex, which will lead to me falling off. That’s 3 right there =P Seriously, though, this is an awesome list and I can’t wait to see the photos you come up with!

  3. You are formally invited to all of my USEA events in 2015, none of which require a plane ticket. You could easily knock off 1, 2, 3, possibly 5 and 6 depending on venue, 10 happens all the time on course walks, 11 definitely, 19, 21, 23, 27, and possibly 30. So really… it’s only logical. 😉
