I do the same thing! I put Pandora on on my phone and it let play while I'm riding!

We have been listening to our country music while we're riding, its fun to see which songs affect their movements :) especially when lounging, when a song with a higher tempo/beat comes on those horses move out so fast! We're also planning a musical ride :)

the hardest part of riding is the ground... yup sounds about right

I always find the various marches that Handel wrote (for Water Music and Music for the Royal Fireworks esp) are really good for trot work. 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.

I read an article on Freestyle (dressage to music) the other day and it told you how to find music that was the right tempo for your horse :)

Stick a bandage on one of your horses front legs to make it easier to see the start of each new stride and film your horse in their 3 paces (or try and get someone to do it for you!) count every stride for a minute from the video and that is your beats per min you need for the music :)

I would really love to have a go at this too...

I do dressage to music with my horse, and we do drill riding to music too with some of my friends. It's really fun, and we pick songs that not only match strides in trot, walk and canter, but to match the movements and to mix together well.

We also like to play music from speakers while we school, which is mostly background music, and then when we do SJ we always have really upbeat pop playing, to psych us up ;)

Fitzroy's current faves are Call Me Maybe, Primadonna Girl, 212, Come Fly With Me, Remember the Name and Feel the Love.

Call Me Maybe is great for extended trot / trot half-pass. Just has that cheesy grin factor (:

I sing when I ride + nobody is around xD It relaxes me, and in turn relaxes the horse. Though I feel really bad for anyone that might overhear me. Their poor ears must be tainted something awful now ...
