    Horse who you rides name?
    Zeus

    Their breed, age and height?
    Quarter Horse, 12yo, 16hh

    Best memory with them?
    Hmm... Probably when I took him to the fair for 4H. Tons of fun. It's sad I'm too old now There needs to be 4H horse club for adults!

    Worst memory with them?
    I went trail riding last year on my birthday. It was hot and we were just finishing up a longer trail, when we came across a sandy spot. Zeus DROPPED to try to roll and freaked me out! He got right back up, but it was scary. It's sad that that's my "worst" memory

    Best horse related memory?
    My aunt came out for a show day and helped me get Zeus groomed up and ready. She was a great barrel racer, and she came out for my plunky pleasure show to help.

    Worst horse related memory?
    Ugh.. Probably watching the coach for my equestrian team pull a poor horse's snaffle up to his eyeballs and kick him in the shoulder to collect him. Terrible.

    Earliest horse related memory?
    I really didn't like horses for a very long time so I probably repressed them all

    Discipline you ride?
    Is relaxing trail rides a discipline? Western pleasure. Trying to get into reining and maybe hunters.

    Your worst vice? (doesnt have to be horse related)
    Procrastination

    Pets?
    A cat that has no name. She's adorable but never settled on a name so it's usually just "kitty".

    Zeus!

    Out of all the horses you have ridden who is your least favourite to ride and why?

    Chromebook laptop

    How long have you been riding?
    Not terribly long

    What made you love horses?
    Actually bought horses for my sister, who wanted to barrel race. (And my dad, who used to break and train auction horses) I ended up taking care of them most of the time, and now it's a full-time job, as well as keeping my bank account dry.

    Only have seen about two horse movies.

    Favourite non horse movie?
    I'm going to say Fight Club.

    Favourite part of the horse?
    Tail. I love grooming and braiding. Or their muzzle for horsey kisses.

    Least favourite piece of tack to put on?
    I'm not a fan of cinching up. Always afraid it's too tight/loose.

    I keep a crop because Zeus sometimes gets into lazy moods. Spurs on Zeus for refinement. Whip for groundwork.

    What kind of saddle do you ride in? A collegiate all purpose.
    What kind of bridle do you use? No idea. It was the cheapest oversize bridle I could find on the internet at the time.
    How many horseshoes do you own? (not including the ones on your horses feet) None, surprisingly. Though my husband has a few mishapen wannabe hoof picks that he tried to make out of horse shoes. Our farrier taught him how to use his forge and my husband was playing with it.
    Favourite part of the horse? Their neck. Great for hugging!
    Least favourite piece of tack to put on? The saddle. Mainly because my horse is tall and I am lazy.

    Your current dream? (or goal) To figure out what's wrong with Ursula. She's been having unexplained behavioral changes. I have a vet coming to look at her in two weeks that should hopefully be able to help us.
    Easiest part of riding? Nothing really. I used to think everything was easy until I started my dressage lessons, now I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed!
    Hardest part of riding? Mounting. I've never been graceful with mounting.
    Favourite food? Peanut butter.
    Favourite drink? Water.
    Favourite horse breed? Shire.
    Favourite horse colour? Buckskin.
    Something that makes you happy? A complement on my horse.
