August's 10 Questions

I've been meaning to do this ever since Viva Carlos put it up, but here it finally is, in September, but oh well!

 1.  Is your horse spooky or bombproof?  Kind of in the middle. Lady isn't spooky the way a lot of horses are and most things don't bother her, but she kind of loses her brain sometimes and we all know what happens then.  So not bombproof.

2.  Does your horse have a long or short stride?   Umm, its hard to say since I haven't ridden any other horses in a while, but compared to most horses around here (Quarter Horses and/or short) Lady has a longer stride. She has a very nice reach and covers ground very well.

3.  Describe your current barn in 3 words.  Home, Convenient, Grassy.

4.  If you could switch barns, would you?  Hard question. I love the fact that my horses are at home and I don't have to drive anywhere to ride. But I lack a good trainer, which is something I really crave and need. So yes, if I could (aka. afford it) then I would.

5.  Favorite brand of breeches.  Don't own any, although I would like to.  I wear jeans all the time for riding.

6.  How many blue ribbons do you have?  Don't have any, but I have a lovely red and black one that I got from the Parelli Celebration in 2009. Love that one.  :)

7.  How many saddle pads do you own?  Currently 1 English one and 1 Western Navajo pad. I used to have 2 other ones and then the rats got to them.  :(

8.  Is your horse your phone background/lock screen?  When I had a phone she was.

9.  Do you go trail riding often (weather permitting)?  We don't have actual trails around here, but I do ride around outside of the arena much of the time.

10.  Favorite horsey movie?  Hidalgo, or Seabiscuit.
