10 Questions of October

I am actually doing these questions in the correct month! Yay! Another ten questions created by Viva Carlos.

Let's all take a moment to appreciate my horse's trot 💁 And not acknowledge that I have instagrammed three times today🙈

  1. How many pairs of breeches/jods do you own? 
    • Too many, and not enough. I mostly rotate through the same four or five of my favorite pairs during the week and use the others as backups.
  2. How many horses have you ridden?
    • This may be the hardest question so far. Between a ton of different barns, IEA, IHSA, and riding friend’s horses, I am not sure I could actually remember how many horses I have ridden, let alone COUNT them all! In short, upwards of 80.
  3. How many trainers have you had?
    • Another complicated one since I have taken lessons and clinics with TONS of different people. But as far as people that I consider my “trainer”, 4.
  4. How many barns have you ridden at?
    • Ridden at? Many, many, many because of shows and such. Boarded at? 8, which seems like a lot, but I rotate through the same three barns depending on whether Ax and I are at home, at school, or on the Island.
  5. What is the name of the horse you consider yourself to have the greatest bond with?
    • Angel. Ax is on his way there, though.
  6. What is your favorite show name you’ve ever encountered?
    • I am not sure I have one. I usually don’t may too much attention to horse names at shows.
  7. What do you consider your greatest weakness or flaw in riding?
    • My fear of certain fences and fence height. I think that I am hindering myself because I can’t get out of my own head.
  8. What do you consider to be your greatest strength?
    • My flat work. I spent so much of my riding life doing dressage and flat work, that it is absolutely my greatest strength.
  9. Have you ever leased a horse?
    • Yes, quite a few.
  10. What is the name of the first horse you rode?
    • Aside from carnival pony rides? JB.
