Your Horse..’s Name:
Tries to unbalance you when you ride him.
A crooked stripe. Black dots in his two back socks.
Hoofer Riding Club
Only once, and he was probably trying to tell me that I was doing something wrong :). He's incredibly safety-oriented.
I've never loaded him- I lease him at his home barn
Greenie or Push Button?:
Neither- he's in the middle. He knows basic W/T/C, leg-yield, etc. but doesn't really understand some things... and he is difficult to ride, so not push button
Even Seriously Injured/Sick?:
He was impaled by a fence post once- it narrowly missed his heart and he spent a year in the vet hospital. He also got the tip of his ear bitten off by another horse.
Like Human Food?:
No- the only human food he likes are wheat crackers.
A horrid A/P with NO knee blocks...
Navy blue with neon green piping
White- boring, I know.
Not really- it's a work in progress.
Done Something Other Than Regular Discipline?:
Have Good Manners?:
Ground manners? YES. He is the quietest horse EVER!
Good With Children?:
Yes- he also loves dogs and any animals smaller than him.
Good With Strangers?:
I guess- he doesn't really socialize with people he doesn't know well :)
YES!!!!!!!!!!!! All the time :)
Love What He Does?:
I hope ;)
He has some trust issues, but once you develop a bond with him, he will try his heart out for you. He is incredibly sweet with people, but is always picking fights in the pastures.
Love His Home?:
Neighbors, yes. (Taj and Devlin). Buddies? No.
Friends At Home?:
He is incredibly unpopular with the herd. I'm actually not sure that he even has one equine friend...
Not sure... he was owned by a girl who went away to college.
Jumpers Have You Ever?
Yes. Never off of Tumpity Wumpity, though
Picked a Hoof?:
Put a Bridle Back Together?:
Checked for Lameness?:
Kissed a Nose?:
Yes- all the time :)

Gotten Seriously Injured Because of Horses?:
Once I was bucked off and my parents had to resort to carrying me up the stairs to my bed the first night, but it wasn't a long-lasting pain.
Fallen Off and Gotten Right Back On?:
Every time I've fallen off.
Ridden With No Tack?:
Not yet :(
Ridden Without Stirrups?:
Yes- it's good for your equitation
Yes- so much fun, even though it was nothing over 2-foot lol
Cried Because of Your Horse?:
Spent More Than $2,000 On One Trip To the Tack Store?:
Thankfully, no. Thankfully because I only lease right now, and if I owned Thumper, I would probably have bankrupted my parents a long time ago... O.O
Fed Your Own Horse?:
Ridden Next to a Road?:
Bought Special Hay Just for Your Horse?:
Taught a Lesson?:
Trained a Horse?:
Kind of... I helped my instructor :)

What kind of saddle do you own?:
I don't own my own saddle yet. I wish I did!

Plan on owning your horse your talking about during this survey?:
I hope, but probably not seeing as my parents are dead-set about me owning a horse before I graduate from college :(
Ever hold the lead shank, while the vet puts him to sleep?:
If needed, I'd want to be the one. I'd rather not think about that though.
