1. I own
2. A few times a week
3. Close to eleven years
4. A multitude. Dressage, Hunter/Jumper, Western Pleasure, Barrel Racing
5. 17
6. I'm just getting back into it as of this year
7. My very first horse is a short and fat Friesian x Standardbred, he's black with a star and one half pastern, he's my trail buddy. My second horse is a 15.3 OTSB, it took us a long time, but we have a really close bond. She doesn't trust easily. She learns quickly, and hold grudges. This will be her first time competing under saddle this year. My third horse is my moms. She's a possible QH cross, she's old and grouchy and the two of us don't see eye to eye.
8. Not every time, but occasionally
9. Hmm, I have a lot, so I'll only list a few. Sticks and Stones by Jonsi, Home by Philip Philips, I'm Coming After You, By Owl City, I'm Bleeding Out, By Imagine Dragons ...
10. Show my mare at her first Dressage test without anything bad happening. I don't care if we don't place, I just want it to be positive for her.
11. Last fall while trail riding with my mare, she reared up because I wouldn't let catch up to the other horses, and thus began a very dangerous habit that we have successfully overcome.

Thank you for feeding us years of lies. Thank you for the wars you left us to fight. Thank you for the world you ruined overnight. But we'll be fine, yeah we'll be fine.

Oops, 10 & 11!
10. My next goal is to win a gold medal at BC Heritage Championship finals, just 1! It is coming up in less than 2 weeks, everyone wish me luck, please!!
11. Last fall was 4 years ago. A friend of mine, an older lady with very bad knees asked me to give unridden 3 year old his first ride in her roundpen. She said he had all his groundwork done & she had grounddriven him everywhere with a saddle. I longed him in the roundpen first with my English saddle, he bucked like a bronc. She figured it was my saddle so ^^^^^We (stupid iPod always does that to the word w e, can't stop it) to her stock saddle, horse was good. After more longeing, I mounted him several times, both sides, sat on him, flexed him a little. I was going to call it a day & return the next day but she wanted to lead me around on him, all was going well until another horse who was watching us outside the roundpen reached over & took a nip at his butt as ^^^^^We passed by. All Hell broke loose and he started to buck so I bailed and landed on my side, thought I cracked my pelvis! I had her shoo away the other horses (no place to contain them) & got back on him & let him walk around with me on his back for a few minutes, he was fine. I told her I wouldn't ride him again until she could keep the other horses away. She wanted to send him to me for a month but I declined, I don't train horses any longer, I was just doing her a favor. She sent him to a friend of mine who rode him for a month but the owner has never ridden him, he is a pasture ornament, too green for her to be safe.
