i always ride with my phone in my pocket and crank up the tunes (: i enjoy the ride more... and listen to up beat fast songs when im doing mounted games, and something a little more classic when im doing dressage (:

I found also that i don't get distracted as often when im competing cause im used to heaps of noise (the music)

I ride with my ipod. I have a holder that fits my arm.I do ride with only one ear thing in though so I can hear whats going on around me. lol I even have a special playlist for when I ride..I love it. Might sound crazy but whatever, I sing along with whats playing sometimes and I think Nikki likes it. she will calm down some especially slow work. it's like she relaxes to the constant sound of my voice. You might think I'm crazy but I'm serious!

I usually am not a very motivated (shy) rider so I Liston to music to get pumped up, because my barrel horse is pretty lazy, and I sometimes have to ride by my self and it can get kind of boring even though I have my horse. Plus, I like to sing to so I love to have the radio on :)

^^Amen to that! I love to be goofy and start singing with my ipod while I ride, epsecially when people go by because they look at me funny until they see my earbuds...cracks me up. I usually like to have a radio going when I ride- it helps me get in the mood for what i want to do. Sadly, i haven't re-hooked up my radio, so I've been doing exercises without it....I seem to do shorter sessions without music as well. It keeps you going, that's for sure!

^^I noticed that to... i don't ride as long when i don't have music :( and the horse I mainly ride is at there is a indoor so whenever I sing it echoes. Hahahaha! I like turning on the country station on, sometimes the country oldies.
Now that I think of it my grandma has this pasofino that gets nervous and I've have sang to her sometimes to give her something else to think about then everything else going on. I'm surprised she doesn't dumped me because of my vocals instead. haha!

And honestly, that's how country music got started...the cowboys used to sing out of boredom, and to keep the cattle and horses calm.
