I like listening to music while riding, but I like metal and screamo, and when my horse hears it be thinks he's being yelled at.

I've been known to drain my car's batteries by opening the doors and my hatchback and blasting my radio so I can listen and ride. I won't notice exactly when the music stops, but all of a sudden I think...."Ahhh dang it." I'll have to get a jump start. xP

But I stopped doing this when my car died and no one was at the stables and it was night....I had to call a friend to drive out and give me a jump. From then on, I use head phones and my Ipod. If I'm on trail I'll only have one in, in the arena I plug both in and I can't hear anything....I love it.

Still trying to find a good, loud portable radio I can use and plug in without draining my car...or spending $500 --->That money is going to a new saddle before a radio.

EDIT : I forgot half the question D= I listen to almost everything, Rap, county, Show Tunes, Rock....Pop...you name it, I'll listen to it.

I listen to country really only when I am driving other than that I don't really listen to music.

I have found it really hard to listen to music while I am riding and at my barn we have a lot of kids and people who are really rude so I feel if I was riding I would be really unsafe to listen to music. Well at least listening to music with my head phone in. Our arenas are usually really crowded also.

I think if I was going to listen to music it would probably be something like Adele or Mumford&Sons because they are super calming and I can get really nervous while riding my horse especially with jumping.

I always listen to music while I ride. I generally have it on the country or classic rock stations. I'm working on my hubby to build me some type of plexiglass box to put my ipod dock in on the arena wall to keep the dust out and hard wire it into the pa speakers. Then it would be a mish mash of everything from Alabama to Metallica.

I'd have to clean up some of the stuff on it too, pretty sure my neighbors wouldn't appreciate Tool or Rage Against the Machine.......

I wish I listened to music while riding. But there is no radio at the barn and I was told the owner doesn't like head phones, so in the quiet it is. I'd range from country to rock if I could listen though.

When I was still at my parent's I would have the radio playing while riding my last horse. She would always drift towards the radio and stop whenever Red Hot Chili Peppers came on.

My cat has a preference too... if I have to take her anywhere she freaks out in the car, unless I'm playing Dierks Bentley. Then she falls right asleep.

And Allison, when I was younger, like way younger, and still ran around the yard pretending to be a horse, I would jump a random yard junk course whenever that song came on in my dad's shop. I always wanted to jump a horse to it, but alas, I went the western route.

I loveeee riding while listening to my ipod. :) as another poster said, it really helps you "ride" if you tend to overthink things like crazy. I won't listen to music if there are other people hacking or lessoning though, too much distraction for me haha.

Definitely dubstep/rock is what I listen too. Gets me pumped up and determined to ride out/fix any problems I have during my hack. Robbie loves dubstep, he bobs his head to the beat haha. And he stomps really hard at the trot to keep up with the rythym of the song. :)

I occasionally listen to music when I ride. Pretty much anything that is on my iPod... which is pretty much everything...

I always ride with the music quiet enough for me to hear everything around me in case of an emergency, but loud enough for me to still hear it.

LOL! I agree, David Lee Roth gives me the creeps...

How about this for a jumping song?
