1. How old were you when you first rode a horse? 24 and yes, I am still 24

2. What was your first horse? Never had one, but Flicka is basically my horse without all the fun horsey expenses.

3. What is your favorite breed? From a visual perspective I love Clydesdales and Oldenburgs, but it's really all about personality.

4. What is your favorite discipline to ride? Learning with a western saddle and direct reining, but I guess it would be considered western based on the saddle. I think Bareback is wonderful though, shows me how much work I need on my seat.

7. What traits do you look for most in a horse? Calm and curious

8. What trait in a horse do you most despise? In all animals actually, aggressiveness and a lack of interest in humans, both of which are likely attributed to idiotic humans rather than the horse, but there are always the exceptions. Aggressive animals are so frustrating.

9. What do you like about the horse world? Everyone seems to be so willing to help out and answer questions.

10. What upsets you about the horse world? Abuse

11. If you could spend the day with any horse person, who would it be? Based on my limited knowledge of the horse world, I would have to say Stacey Westfall, just from what I've seen on TV.

12. Who have you learned the most from in your horse life? My current trainer, she's so much more knowledgeable than others that have helped before, plus she just downright loves horses.

13. What type of rig do you haul? No rigs being hauled, one day though! One day!

14. What is your favorite breed of dog? Can't disagree with the mutts and pound puppies! If I had to name a breed it would be either Pit Bull or Great Dane.

15. What type of music do you play in your barn/truck? Rock/Alternative

16. What trainer/horse person inspires you? Stacey Westfall, for the obvious bareback and bridleless connection she's developed with her horse(s).

22. If you could have one ride on any horse in history, who would it be?
Mammoth - the largest recorded horse in history. 21.25 hh and 3300 pounds. Imagine what it would feel like to be on top of something like that.


23. What is your ideal horse day? Putting a chair in the middle of the pasture and just sitting. Peaceful and makes me feel good when they come to rub on me!

24. What is your favorite horse chore? Grooming of course.

25. What is your least favorite horse chore? Picking her feet due to my old man back.

26. What horses do you own now? None

1. How old were you when you first rode a horse? 3 days. I'm told that when I was three days old, and I visited my uncle, he was out riding his old gelding, Scooter, and he picked me up and held me in the saddle in front of him and we walked around the round pen. (My uncle is probably the number one reason I'm so into horses!)

2. What was your first horse? A mixed breed old grey mare, Frosty, that my dad got in a trade with his dad for a pool table; she wasn't broke, but was gentle enough I could sit on her back and be led around. Dad just kept her around to keep the weeds down. We also had a shetland pony named Shilo taht dad got when he bought a truck from a farmer... he went to pick it up, and Shilo was tied to the bumper; the man said he wouldn't sell the truck unless the pony went with it. Shilo was saddle broke, but we never had a saddle.

3. What is your favorite breed? Quarter Horses!

4. What is your favorite discipline to ride? Western, of course.

5. What is your favorite horse color and gender? Maybe roan (red, blue, bay, any of them), or buckskin. Favorite gender is mare!

6. Who is your favorite horse of all time?
Owned by you: In temperment, Bandit and 2-Pak; for riding, Tanner and Magic
Not owned by you: Umm... maybe my friend's horse, Bailey. I keep threatening to steal him. Or my uncle's old horses, Sunny and Scooter.

7. What traits do you look for most in a horse? Even tempered. I can deal with anything the horse throws at me, so long as they aren't hot headed, stubborn, and spoiled!

8. What trait in a horse do you most despise? Hot headed horses that are just all out wound up! A friend of mine has a barrel horse that if you let the reins loose, she'll bolt off like mad, and she's always dancing and prancing around. ****ed good barrel horse, pretty, has a good head on it, it's just so worked up, it'd drive me up a wall!

9. What do you like about the horse world? It's so varied! People can be from opposite ends of the Earth, and ride totally different styles, on different breeds of horses, but can still bond over the same love for horses!

10. What upsets you about the horse world? People who only have eyes for the blue ribbon, and don't care what they have to do to get it. People who are stuck up, and have a holier-than-thou attitude about their horses.

11. If you could spend the day with any horse person, who would it be? I don't really follow any trainers... maybe Dale and Mark? Or Katie... I dunno. Just some of my horse-people friends from around here, the people that I admire -- I've always had a hard time admiring some guy in TV with a high-dollar horse; I'd much rather learn from the people who will plop down in the parking lot of the local show and answer my questions, critique my rides, and just be my buddy, maybe in exchange for an occasional soda or something.

12. Who have you learned the most from in your horse life? My horses! They've taught me much more than any one person has!

13. What type of rig do you haul? A red 2000 Dodge 2500 with a 5.9L Cummins engine and a three-horse-slant Sundowner trailer with a tack room (slant dividers removed and the whole trailer rigged with interior and exterior lighting; Also, there's 110v electricity wired into the tack room, with flourescent lighting.)
