1. How old were you when you first started riding?
Um, I have been on horses nearly since the day I was born, but I started riding on my own at about 2 1/2 or 3.

2. First horse ridden?
My first real horse was a 16 hand buckskin QH named Buck. The first animal that I rode by myself was a 34" tall mini-burro named Olen.

3. First horse cantered on?
Buck.

4. Have you ever ridden a pony?
Nope, closest I've come is my Miniature Burro, Olen.

5. First Horse fallen off of?
Olen, little stinker bucked me off in the middle of the road.

6. Most recent horse fallen off of?
Hmm, that would be a big sorrel gelding named Diamond. He was one that a customer sent to me that turned out to be an unstoppable bucker. That was last fall.

7. First horse you trotted over poles with?
Never really trotted over poles with any of my horses. Closest is going through deadfall on the trails.

8. First horse jumped with?
My bay QH named Denny.

9. First horse who ran away with you?
Whew, I honestly don't remember. It was a sorrel horse I rode when I was about 12 or 13. He was a greenie that I was riding.

Hm, I don't really know. I can't recall ever really being scared by a horse.

Buck.

18. First Horse to place at a show with?
Never shown.

19. Ever been to horse camp?
No, I don't even think we have those around here. We used to go camping with our horses though, does that count? LOL.

20. Ever been to a riding clinic?
No, but have been asked to put one on for some 4H kids this spring.

21. What is your favorite discipline?
Ranch work, but that is basically a combination of trail riding, cutting, roping, and endurance.

22. First horse leased/partboard?
Always owned my own.

I only own one horse that I've mentioned: Abby. The others are owned by the summer camp I work at.

1. How old were you when you first started riding? Erm..I rode my friend's horse when I was 5, then was a horsemaster at the camp I work at now when I was 10. On a regular basis though? Like 2 years ago.

2. First horse ridden? Bah! I have no idea what its name was. Just that my friend's horse was Katman.

3. First horse cantered on? Hm.. Poseidon? I've never thought about it.

4. Have you ever ridden a pony? Nope.

5. First Horse fallen off of? Poseidon. The only time I've ever fallen.

6. Most recent horse fallen off of? Po. It was in August 2009.

7. First horse you trotted over poles with? I trotted Abby over poles while being lunged on Tuesday, but I've never done it in a saddle.

8. First horse jumped with? Shasta. In a western saddle and I have no idea how to actually jump. I just loped her into the poles for jumping.

9. First horse who ran away with you? Abby. In the dark. I had a helmet on too and the visor fell. She was very herdbound then and didn't want to leave her friends. I was very embarrassed with the whole thing.

10. First horse that scared the crap out of you? I wasn't scared, but Ringo didn't make me feel very safe after she tried to kick another wrangler in the head. (she threw up her hand fast enough that she only suffered a broken hand and a minor concussion)

11. First horse shown? Never shown

12. First horse to win a class with? Haven't shown

13. Do you/have you taken lessons? Nope. Just what I've learned from others by asking or watching.

14. First horse you ever rode bareback? Shasta? Maybe. The only time I've ridden her bareback. She was sold anyway. Ugh.

15. First horse trail ridden with? Abbie. Different than my Abby. She was my horse when I was a horsemaster at camp.

16. Do you give your horse mash ever? Nope.

17. Do you ride English or western? Strictly western.

18. First Horse to place at a show with? Don't show

19. Ever been to horse camp? Sort of? I work at a summer camp that HAS horses and horse camps there. I was a horsemaster one of the times I was a camper.

20. Ever been to a riding clinic? Nope

21. What is your favorite discipline? Barrel racing. Maybe reining too.

22. First horse leased/partboard? Never had one. I own my mare.

23. What is your favorite color horse? Hmm. Blue roan probably, but I do love my buckskin and I love bays.

24. Highest ribbon in a show? Don't show

32. Ever cantered bareback? Yep. Ended up underneath Po. I have a scar from it. I'm upset it didn't stay a hoofprint, just the two ends

33. Have you ever done dressage? Nope. Can't see myself ever doing dressage.

34. Have you ever evented? Nope

35. Have you ever mucked a stall? This morning. It pays my board. However, my horse is all by her lonesome outside as she has no stall and the other outside horses are gone as of last week.

36. Ever been bucked off? Actually no. I've been bucked, but I've never come off.

37. Ever been on a horse that reared? Nope.

38. Horses or Ponies? Horses. Ponies are little jerks.

41. Have you ever ridden at night? Yes.

42. Do you watch horsey television shows? No

43. Have you ever been seriously hurt/injured from a fall? Nope, just from keeping my butt in the saddle, actually. Hitting your saddle wrong when stopping quickly is terrible for your spine and will jack up your vertebrae.

44. Have you ever ridden without anything (tack)? Nope

45. Do you ride in an arena or ring? Only because it's too cold to go outside. It's warming up now though. Yay!

46. Have you ever been trampled by a horse? Yep! The time I fell, I fell in front of Po and was loped over. I would consider that trampled.

47. Have you ever been bitten? I think so. If I have it was by Zippo because he bites.

48. What is your favorite breed of horse? Stock breeds like Quarter Horses and Paints.

49. Do you clean your tack regularly? I just cleaned my saddle last week. My pad is microsuede, so I'm always brushing dirt off of it to keep it clean

50. Ever played ride-a-buck? I have no idea what this is..?
