I live in a good-sized city and often travel to a nearby large city that I also love. I definitely love city life. However, I own a horse, and naturally he must live in a rural or at least suburban area (I board him currently).
In a perfect world, I'd have my special paradise: a city where I could keep my horse at home and ride him around town! The grounds of my house would be large enough for him to graze on; he would have a lovely stable; I'd have a nice indoor ring as well as an outdoor. I could go out to the stable last thing at night and talk to him and give him a treat; I could ride whenever fancy struck me. It would be my bliss.
This perfect-world city would accommodate all the horse-lovers and have stables with attendants everywhere, so we could ride our horses all over and know they'd be safely cared for while we did our errands, shopped, or dined. While I'm dreaming, automobile drivers would ALWAYS give us the right-of-way and NEVER do asshat-ish things like rev engines or honk horns loudly or squeal tires, to try to frighten the horses. Oh, and the golf courses would be stables and show grounds and horse parks--think of the lovely, lovely courses you could build!!! :D
Parks in general would be loaded with bridle paths!
Oh, I want it now! I want to be able to ride my horse to the mall! :) :) :) ;)
