I get too lazy to put boots on sometimes so I end up riding in sneakers and shorts/sweatpants. I also occationally ride without a helment ( I know, big bad)
And one more thing- I let my horse graze loose on the property sometimes, which I know is not really a good idea. That's about it lol

I am extemely annal too. Everything has to be just right and my equipment is in spotless condition and even after 20 plus years my headstall looks new.
I have no patience for people who really know nothing about horses and the experts in any barn that don't ride themselves and just talk about their past.
I have no patience for the kids on the forum who come across as experts and have no experience of their own.

I do not have a temper working with horses or any animal.

Green Broke
- impatience/giving up
- riding barefoot
- smacking horse (a branch is even better)
- chair seat
- Piano hands (I think that's what it's called)

I sometimes hand feed a horse a treat or two. It's forbidden at the barn haha.

I've ridden in sneakers and without a helmet too, and lost my temper too with a young horse. I'm better about patience now though and am getting a happier horse.

I don't ride enough as I should.....I know, bad. :(

I am so absent minded - I would forget my saddle if it wasn't obvious. Luckily my horses are just used to my forgetfulness, they stand like angels as I rush back to the tack room for my gloves, my helmet, my whip, etc. They know I am crazy and are so patient with me, I think they feel sorry for me:)

If you are an endurance rider you should be spending as much time as possible on the ground and that means jogging. I always wore sneakers in a race and while training. I bail off every few miles and run beside the horse and only get back on when I am too tired to maintain pace.
