Type of riding: Up until a year ago, I rode English. Primarily jumpers. I now ride dressage.

Horses: I owned a Thoroughbred who passes away a few weeks ago. I ride my trainers horses now. They are mainly Holsteiners, I believe.

Favorite treat: My horse used to love Twizzlers. One of my trainer's horses loves his Probios. She gives it to him in the syringe and he absolutely loves it. It's pretty funny.

Barn drama: I used to have a ton of barn drama at the place I had been at two years ago. I couldn't stand all the pettiness so I moved.

Cutest thing: Nothing really. The only thing I can think of is that any time my horse was sick/hurt/needed help, he'd always nickered at me and expected me to make every thing better. For example, he over reached and bashed his heel pretty badly once. He just nickered to me, held the injured foot up, and wanted to be snuggled with the whole time I was fixing him up. Lol

Biggest achievement: Jumping an entire course at 4'9 with the final boxer set at 5'3.

Heck no, they may pick on him a bit but they will be thinking differently.
I tell my male friends who are looking for a lady friend to take riding lessons- works every time.

What type of riding do you do? English, Western, Dressage, Eventing, etc: I do a little bit of everything! Western pleasure, Hunter pleasure, Dressage, trails, the occasional gymkhana too.

What breed of horse do you own/lease/ride: I own a beautiful arabian gelding who is my absolute pride and joy!

What is your horse's favorite food: Carrots, carrots, carrots. Stereotypical but he goes crazy when I run into the barn and open the fridge!

Do you have any barn drama?: Not so much. I'm not in love with how tiny my boarding barn is (residential property, wish the footing was better but I'm too close with the boarders/BM to leave! Gah!), but it's a good situation otherwise!

Whats the cutest thing you've done with your horse: Jax learned how to follow a carrot tied to the string of a lunge whip while I was on his back. A friend and I navigated a little barrel pattern that way, no reins! It was too cute.

Whats your best achievement you and your horse have done: Going from a front-to-back trained arab WP horse (when purchased) to a happier, healthier all-around with lots of buttons and excellent movement!

What type of riding do you do? English, Western, Dressage, Eventing, etc:
Eventer over here!

What breed of horse do you own/lease/ride:
I call him a 'Heinz 57 Horse' because he's a rescue and I don't have any backgound info on him. Our best guess right now is throughbred with some morgan and quarter horse thrown in.

What is your horse's favorite food:
Soft peppermints!

Do you have any barn drama?:
Nope! I'm the only younger (under 18) person at my barn so theres no like 'teen drama'

Whats the cutest thing you've done with your horse:
umm...he comes when I call him?

Whats your best achievement you and your horse have done:
I just had my first cross country lesson with him and he was an angel! He didn't even blink at any of the jumps!

Western, roping, ranch work, drill team( I don't, but my daughter uses my head horse in one of the patterns for her drill team), and the occasional play day...

All quarter horses, stocky, cowy, smart(sometimes too smart for their own good-and mine), and athletic

Sweet tea and beer

Don't do much cute -- but, my daughter did put a bunch of pink ribbons in their hair on tough enough to wear pink night at the San Angelo rodeo for the drill team's performance ... so, I guess that counts!

Won $$ roping, survive the 8 rodeo performances in San Angelo...(well, that was more for us humans than the horses...)

In my area, any time we females catch wind of a guy riding a horse english style, we all just hope he's single! I wouldn't worry about that.

I'm dating myself but back in the stone age I went to summer riding camp with Tad Coffin of saddle making fame. He was older. All us little girls twittered and mooned over him. He barely knew we were alive.

As for the questions...
I ride a TWH but also own an app and a curly.
I ride mostly western but it can depend on how the wind is blowing that day.
Barn drama, nope I live alone and my horses live with me.

Cute? Had an entire girl scout troop over for their horsemans badge once. Put silly colored ribbons in their hair more than a few times. Painted a few smiley faces on hooves.

Achievement? Depends on what you mean. I don't show. Don't care to show. Survived 25 yrs with a large bi-polar QH, didn't die when another horse flipped over on me. Didn't break anything when kicked through a wall. The list of those sorts of achievements goes on. At this point in my life each day started and completed is an achievement.

My horses favorite food...I don't feed much for treats but probably carrots. The pony will taste test anything she sees a person eating. The other two didn't know what treat was when I got them.
