30 things...

1: If your horse could talk what would they say? What would they be like?
I think Henry would be a jock but also really sweet at times. He has become really affectionate over the couple years that I have had him :)

2: If you were a horse, what would you look like (color, markings, etc), what discipline would you do, and what would you be like to ride?

I would be a beautiful gray, who is a kick ass hunter/derby horse who wins everything! :)

3: How many barns have you ridden at?
As a child, 2
As an adult, 3

4: What kind of bay do you prefer? (bright bay, blood bay, etc)
Dapple and lots of chrome!

5: Can you braid a horse's mane? Tail?
I wish!

6: Do you believe that you have to fall off in order to be a good rider?
I believe that a good rider is made over years of hard work.. and over those years, if you are being pushed and challenged you will probably fall off.

7: What do you think is more important: eq or effective riding?
I think the go hand in hand... some of the Eq has gone towards "looking pretty" or conforming to what is popular- that isn't the Eq I am referring to :)
8: Are there any "horse couples" at your barn?

Farrier and his wife both ride.. my hubby is horse savvy but doesn't ride, does that count?

9: Favorite treat to feed your horse?
I love any of the softer molasses ones!

10: Silly quirks your horse has. 

He can undo his stall door, does that count?

11: Strangest thing you've fed your horse.

I don't normally feed him different things.. he normally spits out anything different that I try to feed him that I am eating so I don't waist the bite on him lol!
12: Have you ever made any horse friends through the internet?

Yep, that is how I found my trainer- through L via the internet.

13: Would you buy horse furniture?

Probably with-in moderation :)

14: Funniest horsey moment


Hmm idk

15: Post a picture of your horse (or any horse) making a silly face that you got on camera!

16: What's a moment with horses that you wished you caught on camera?

I've got some great moments on camera (thanks Kat and Andy) but I wish that I had more moments when I was younger and riding/showing.

17: How old was the youngest horse you've met?

When I was growing up, there were babies born at the barn that I rode at and the youngest I met was less then a day old.

18: How old was the oldest horse you've met?

In it's 30's
19: Opinion on colorful tack? (like red or blue)

No thank you

20: Have you ever tried horse treats? Hay? 

Yes, I didn't like either

21: Have you ever felt like giving up on a horse? 

I am sure I have but having that love/horse gene engrained in you, it's hard to walk away.

22: Tell the story about the horse that you first felt "click" immediately with you (and if you can't remember, most recent)

I was in love with Adam. He was a 17h retired Grand Prix horse. Sweetest most adorable and run horse to ride. I did my first show on him and learned a lot on him. I have tried to find the trainer that I rode with that owned him but haven't had any luck :(

23: Ever ridden side-saddle? How was it?

24: Most interesting place you've ridden at.

On the beach?

25: What kind of horse do you like? (sport, stock, endurance, etc)

 Fancy hunters :)

26: Do you feel like you have more patience with horses than people?

Def horses!

27: Is the horse you ride very vocal?

Henry used to be very vocal, thankfully his ear piercing screaming is something he has grown out of :)

28: Ever ridden in the sunset? 

Our old arena had no rails so in our evening lessons, it felt like we were riding into the sunset!

29: How do you like a horse's mane? (roached, pulled, long, etc)

Short and tidy :)
30: What is your dream name for a horse?
