This is just a poll, Im curious on other riders and what they do in their riding :)

Well, you found the right lady because I just love polls!

What type of riding do you do? English, Western, Dressage, Eventing, etc:

Western, but with an ever so slight edge of English and I think for me that's a good thing - a lot of the basics are practiced (like posting.) (UGH) but it's all for the good. I love my school.

What breed of horse do you own/lease/ride:

I use the lesson horses and lately, I'm back on the Morgan I started riding on, a big old boy, but lazy as hell. Now it's driving me nuts. But he's rock solid.

My favorite horse is on maternity leave. She's a QH and I love her and her peppy step and intuition. Miss her awfully.

What is your horse's favorite food:

Hahahahah

Anything. He will eat **** near anything. And the thing is, he has to be monitored because he's diabetic. So I can't slip him a mint when he's particularly energetic for me.

Do you have any barn drama?:

People or horse?
Whereever living things congregate, there is drama up the wazoo.

Whats the cutest thing you've done with your horse:


A seminar where he refused to do much of anything without being cued six million different ways. He's so cute -being he's a good looking horse with a wild lock of hair that covers his face that's his signature but he is a lazy butt - so the audience was literally in stitches. We practically got to take a bow.

Whats your best achievement you and your horse have done:

Yesterday we loped. And as usual he didn't sustain it but I'm slowly learning some of it is me but a lot of it is him. So my best acheivement is to come - this horse will only give what you ask for PERFECTLY, which is how he gets out of doing a lot. So I'll have to either learn to ask perfectly or be content with one run down a straightaway at a lope. But our trot is gorgeous. So I think it's actually for the good. But can be frustrating I have to admit, especially when you have a class that's loping around happily.

Thanks

You're welcome. :)

-Cynthia

I guess I'll have to answer your thread, but I can safely say no. Riders love riders. Remember that. It's like a club. Yesterday after my lesson I had to get some groceries and don't you know, some kid working there saw my breeches and said "I JUST BOUGHT A PAIR LIKE THAT!". And then you talk horse....

Yeah, there is snark, but what gender you are isn't what its about. Snark is just nasty people being nasty.

1. I've ridden western pleasure, hunt seat, saddleseat, western trail (packing/endurance), dressage and we're working on eventing/jumping

2. I have a Tennessee Walking Horse and a Belgain/Paint cross. My Walker is my all-around show, trail, pleasure, endurance, best horse ever horse. The new guy is my green bean that I'm training in dressage and hopefully eventing

3. They like pretty much anything you put in front of them :P

4. No barn drama, they're at my house :)

5. I can tickle the side of my Walker's face and make him bring his lip way over to the side.. I think it's cute anyways :3

6. Our biggest accomplishment is simply our relationship. We've been through a heck of a lot together and it is a constant reward to get on a horse and have him just read my mind.
