My horse's name spelled backwards: rotciV cissalC
I have made a bracelet out of my horse's mane or tail hairs: Not yet...
I have ridden side-saddle on my horse: False
In the summer I like to do this with my horse: Jump, go for trail rides, spoil him rotten.
At a show my horse would do this: Act like an angel one moment and become a total maniac the next. Or surprise me and behave beautifully the whole time.
When I am riding my horse I feel: Completely happy and carefree.
My favorite horse movie would be: Black Beauty
My favorite horse book or series of books are: Black Beauty again. :)
I have made horse cookies by scratch: False, but I make them hot bran mash in the winter.
If my horse were to pull up lame, I would: Check him over a thousand times, tell my trainer, and call the vet/farrier if it was serious.
If my horse did something to anger me, I would: Yell at him, or swat him with a crop if it was something like biting or kicking.
My horse has a habit of: Nuzzling the barn cats and rolling right after I groom/bathe him.
My horse would do this if a stranger hopped on his/her back: He might be good, and he might unload them. You never know. He'd be a good boy if I was right there, though.
My horse would behave like this if I saddled him/her with the opposite tack: Probably just be annoyed and confused.
If I don't feed my horse treats, he/she: Pouts, gives me the silent treatment, and refuses to be nice until he gets his cookies.
My horse's favorite person, other than me, is: My mom.
If someone was unkind to my horse, he/she would: Kick that person into next week.
When I gallop my horse I feel like: We're totally unstoppable.
When I spoil my horse in the barn I: Hand graze him, take him for a roll in the arena, groom him, stuff him full of treats, and give him extra grain.
