Riding Questionairre:

1. How old are you? Nineteen

2. How old were you when you started riding? About nine

3. How long have you been riding? Seriously riding for about 7 years, riding daily or as much as possible for about 9 and riding whenever there was a horse within my reach for about 10 or 11 years.

4. Did you get taught to ride at a riding school, or have parents teach you? I've had five instructors over the years as well as trial and error on my part.

5. How many horses have you had? One, he's twenty-two now

6. Whats the worst injury you have had falling off a horse? When I was young, I fell over the horses shoulder and my hand landed beneath his hoof as his leg was coming down. Off the horse, I have been kicked as well as slammed against a wall. I have had my heels and toes stepped on countless times. I haven't had serious injuries, I've been lucky.

7. Are your horses shod or unshod? Until two years ago, shod on all fours. Two years ago, no shoes, currently shoes on the front two.

8. Clipped or Unclipped? Unclipped! I don't like horses being clipped. I've seen few body clips I like.

9. Whats your favourite riding event? Dressage, use to be showjumping, some cross country

10. Whats your most embarrassing riding moment? I've had plenty. The first one that comes to mind is going into the dressage arena while a girl was in midtest thinking there was a warm up area I could use until they blew the whistle. It wouldn't have mattered so much if my arch enemy wasn't watching and smirking. We did terrible on our test, my horse broke into the wrong transitions with head straight in the air, body SO tense and ignoring the fact I was on his back. When we were finished, the judges yelled at me loud enough to the point I thought everyone could hear. They yelled things I knew, making me feel as if they REALLY thought I was clueless about everything that just happened. My arch enemy was very satisfied.

10. Whats your most embarrassing riding moment?
Haven't really had any embarrasing moments, but I had a real good "cowboy" moment. We were all out riding and I had to get down and tighten a saddle. I was getting back on my horse and she started following the other horses as I was getting on and something spooked her and she took off at a hard gallop down the road. Problem became, I barely had one foot in a stirrup and only had ahold of the saddle horn. She threw her head down like she was going to buck but I managed to get a good handful of mane and yanked her head back bringing her up. I got settled back in the saddle and rode her home.

Re: Whats your riding history?

Riding Questionairre:

1. How old are you? 30. 31 next month....Man I'm old. Crap.

2. How old were you when you started riding? 8

3. How long have you been riding? 22+ years, minus a seven year hiatus while I was in the miltary.

4. Did you get taught to ride at a riding school, or have parents teach you? Neither. I cowboyed with the neighbors, then I cowboyed professionally (not rodeo!) after I left the service. I have also worked with and for trainer in the english and western disciplines that I have managed to pick things up from.

5. How many horses have you had? 7 or 8.....I can count seven off the top of my head. And I know there are one or two I am forgetting.

6. Whats the worst injury you have had falling off a horse? One of my favorite horses happened to go through a barbed wire fence at a high lope, while we were trying to get around some cows. He went to bucking and I got loosened. Not only came up, but ended up with my mecate halfhitched around my leg, so I was hanging upside down, under the horse. I quit counting how many times I got kicked in the head after the sixth. When I did finally manage to cut my way free, and tracked mmy horse down afoot, I made it to the hospital four hours later. I had a concussion, a fractured jaw, a broken arm, and eight broken ribs. Oh, and a torn ligament in my left leg. (The leg that got tied up.). It was quite the exciting little wreck.
