    1. Do you own/lease/ride? I own

    2. How often do you ride? It depends on the week, but normally 5-7 days a week and I'll ride between 1 and 3 horses each time

    3. How long have you been riding for? For 17 years

    4. What discipline do you do? Western. Getting more involved in roping and barrel racing and a lot of trail riding

    5. How old are you? 26

    6. Do you compete? A little. Hoping to do it a little more often as the summer continues.

    7. Describe your horse/horses?
    Trudi: I've had her the longest. She is incredibly important to me. She is 17 this year and I have owned her for 12 years. She has a huge attitude on her and is quite opinionated. When we are on the same page, we are unstoppable. She is on track to be an amazing breakaway, heading, and possibly calf roper
    Maj: I've had her for a few years, but have known her forever. She is half belgian draft, half thoroughbred and is quite a big girl. She was a dressage horse in her riding career, but developed navicular and ring bone. Her only job now is to make me happy and occasionally take me on short bareback rides around the property, which she does a great job
    Twister: She is my newest girl. A chestnut 4 year old quarter horse mare. She has the stereotypical chestnut mare. She isn't afraid to tell me she dislikes something. She is very athletic and a joy to ride. Hoping for her to become my barrel horse, although she seems to have a talent for cow work

    8. Do you listen to music when you ride? Sometimes. I'll occasionally bring the radio out to the outdoor ring when I ride or turn on my cell phone music. Not always though

    9. What is your favorite song/s? Love country, so I've been listening to a lot of that lately. I prefer the band that aren't played on the radio, such as Act of Congress or Eastbound Jesus. Also love classic rock, such as the Beatles (Blackbird is my favourite song).

    10. What is your next equestrian related goal? Get my training horse undersaddle. She has been better then I expected, but we still have awhile to go before I get on her. For my own horses, I need to work with the cows with Trudi (we just got the shoot, so we need to get her trained on that). And I need to work on barrels more with Twist (we've taken a bit of a break the past few months, time to get back into it

    11. When was your last fall? What happened? It was about 3 years ago. In the indoor ring, sitting on Trudi bareback without anything on her face. She scared herself on some fake plants that were decorating the jumps and scooted out from underneath me. I landed on the ground, with a chunk of her mane in my hand lol I've been a lot smarter since then.

    11. When was your last fall? What happened? a few months ago. We went about 4 miles at a trot/ canter with my friend. We turned to go home and she said "im going home with or without you guys" and took off (bad thing for me was I was in an english saddle). I tried the one-rein-stop and only managed to lose my stirrup. Tried to turn her the other way and came off (she was still mostly at full speed) and fell into a ditch. Tore something in my lag and had to walk 3 miles back. My friend finally got her 2 miles down the trail and brought her back to me and we walked about 3 miles back. Darn horse had NO sweat under the saddle and was not even tired. I could not walk without crutches for a week.

    1. Do you own/lease/ride?

    I own!

    2. How often do you ride?

    As often as I can, usually four to six times a week. But I got my license two days ago, so now I can come more often.

    3. How long have you been riding for?

    Since I was nine.

    4. What dicipline do you do?

    English. Specifically hunter/jumper. We like jumper!

    5. How old are you?

    I just turned seventeen.

    6. Do you compete?

    Heck yes!

    7. Describe your horse/horses?

    8. Do you listen to music when you ride?

    I do rarely. The headphones get annoying and sometimes the music distracts me from listening to my horse. I like to listen to the rhythm of his hoofbeats when I ride. It's soothing and helps me concentrate on his cadence.

    9. What is your favorite song/s?

    *brain implodes* Far too many! But I like Levitate, by Hollywood Undead.

    10. What is your next equestrian related goal?

    Well, my main one is the Olympics!

    11. When was your last fall? What happened?

    I don't quite remember. But the last time I fell off at the farm, unmounted, was when I was climbing over the fence to get my boy. XD I had red dirt down my pants. Not fun.

    1. Do you own/lease/ride? Own and ride
    2. How often do you ride? Not as often as I'd like - right now it is one Wednesdays and Sundays and the other 4h horse meetings we have about once a week.

    8. Do you listen to music when you ride? Not unless it is like live music or someone left their truck music on.
    9. What is your favorite song/s? I have much too many to count. But my favorite genre is Country and if I had to choose I think I would go with.... George Strait. June 1st was his final tour!!
    10. What is your next equestrian related goal? This is for next summer: Hopefully I can get a way to get the word out that I will be giving horse lessons next summer. Maybe just charge 5 bucks a person. :)
    11. When was your last fall? What happened? Last time I remember falling was when I was about 6 or 7. An amazing horse person - who is our friend - was helping me and giving me first-time-riding tips for staying balanced on my first pony, Cody! She told me to slowly put my arms out like an airplane. As soon as my arms were up, next thing I had remembered was that I was on the ground and Cody was running away. Well, Cody thought I had a club ros oemthing and was going to smack him. So he took off, and I didn't.
