1. How many minutes do you spend riding a horse in a month?

Two hours a day, seven days a week = 14 hours a week.
About four weeks in a month, so 4 x 14 =56 hours a month.
60 minutes in an hour x 56 = 3360 minutes a month.

2. On average, how much money do you spend on your horse a month?

250 (board) + 50 (various tack) + 70 (shoes are every two months, so that's half cost) = very roughly 370. Sometimes it's significantly more. I have the vet coming Monday, so I'll have to see how that turns out...



3. What is the breed of your horse?

Spotted saddle horse. (Basicly a gaited mutt with spots.)


4. How old is your horse?

Five.


5. How long have you been riding for?

Two years.


6. Why do you ride? (Fun, work, competition, etc.) Explain.

Competition and work. I compete on my mare and a little "lease" horse. I'm also an exercise rider.


7. In your last competition, where did you place?


Didn't place. I took my mare out after the first day due to a tendon injury.

8. How satisfied with your performance are you with your last competition?
_____ very satisfied
_____ satisfied
__*__ unsatisfied
_____ strongly unsatisfied


9. What do you use to groom your horse? Check all that apply.
___ rubber currycomb ___ bot knife
___ shedding blade ___ grooming mitt
__*__ hoof pick ___ grooming sponge

10. Rank the following reasons for spending money on a horse in order from 1-5 (1 being the main reason)

Again, depends on the month.
