  1. Have you ever owned a horse?
    • Yup, two so far.
  2. What is your favorite aspect of your discipline?
    • I love how it all flows and how the rider can adjust the course to be technical or simple.
  3. What pet peeves do you have concerning your discipline?
    • The amount of drugging and artificial methods of making your horse “look right”.
  4. Do you do barn chores?
    • Yup. I work at a barn so it is my job, but I always clean up after myself when I am finished.
  5. What is your least favorite barn chore?
    • I am going with L on this one and say cleaning up after other people.
  6. What do you consider the worst vice in a horse?
    • A bad attitude towards work.
  7. What saddle brand is your favorite?
    • PJ or Bruno Delgrange saddles.
  8. Do you ride with a quarter sheet in the winter?
    • Always, though I usually only warm up with it. I feel like Ax’s little bum would be freezing without it and I wouldn’t want to exercise cold muscles. I have the Rambo Newmarket quartersheet in the brown stripes and I am obsessed with it, the only way it could be better is if it was monogrammed, obviously.
  9. Does your horse wear boots? What kind?
    • Ax wears Eskardon AiR open front boots or my open front Equi-fit T-Boots on his front legs and the matching Eskadron hinds.
  10. Full seat or knee patch breeches?
    • Knee patch. I never liked the feeling of being “stuck” to the saddle in fullseats.
