Kind of. When I get really peeved at my gelding I get off and round pen him, so that I can cool off and he doesn't get out of working. It sorts HIM out pretty quick but I always make him keep going until I'm calm... then I get back on and try again.

Trails or jumping?

I ride using a bit of both [western when on trails, English when I'm schooling or at shows] but if I had to choose, English, because jumping is too much fun. I'm sort of tempted to get a QH or Paint for barrels and cutting and that sort of thing though... just to shake things up a little. My tack is all English.

Gag or curb?

I don't use either:) Mostly a bosal and sometimes a snaffle.

Have you ever done something illegal with your horse?

Sort of. I snuck into the local Pony Club grounds through the back entrance not many people know about and fewer people can get through [it's kind of tricky to get to with a horse] and went around jumping every safe XC fence on course. Some branches were down on fences from a storm so we didn't jump those ones of course. I was with a friend so I was safe, and I am covered by PCA insurance even though I'm not currently a member of that club. My friend is a member of Equestian Australia which covers her no matter where or when she's riding! But we still would have copped it if we'd been caught. The risk was all part of the fun!

Do you board, or keep your horse/s where you live?

keep the horse at my place!

Do you feed your horse human food?( ice cream for example)

I may seem small, but if you mess with my horse, I will break out a level of crazy that will make your nightmares seem like a happy place.

On occasion he steals it off me :P I might share what I'm eating voluntarily if he's REALLY lucky.

Ever looked at your horse, thought, CRAP HE'S LOSING WEIGHT, then 6 hours later looked at your horse again and he's obese?

Depends on the horse - I do it regularly on my gelding, but it's really uncomfortable [his spine sticks up a little bit - no matter what I do, that's just his shape. He is rather fat at the moment and his spine is STILL sticking up] so I can't do it too often or I get a rub sore in my butt crack. Was that TMI? hahaha

...on a pony I used to have I rode bareback ALL the time even though he was a right brat and bucked me off on a regular basis, because he was just so comfy.

Are you ever blown away by the difference a bit of spit and polish can make? [I just saddle soaped up my new saddle and OMG haha]

Only on boots and shoes! Tack gets cleaned regularly.

Has forgotten to feed their animals one day!
