I sing more quiet folk ballads for the walk, Enya's Epona or Waltz of the Flowers (Nutcracker) for a nice canter, and the "gallopy" bit of Breath of Life (Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers) for galloping lol.
I must look like a crazy person...
I do too! My horse seems to like it. Not because of my terrible singing voice, but probably because it's calming to him and me.
If the radio is on (even loud) I can't seem to hear the music when I ride because my thoughts while riding drown out the music.
