before I had a horse, I thought of my lab as a horse. I made saddles out of paper and tied them around her with string. I made a halter with reins out of string. She also had a stall, which was the part of my desk where the chair would go. Dixie has a cross country course behind my house. She knows what the works walk, trot and canter mean. She also knows how to jump and to do lead changes. She can do a collected trot or an extended one.
The list goes on, but i'm getting kind of embarrassed
That was also years ago when Dixie was like 2 or something. She's now 12, and I was around 9 or so.
Wash and clean your horse better than yourself.hehe..i spend hours grooming
Leave dinner early to check your horse. yes...sometimes I skip it
Skip dessert ""yeah..i don't skip it I just share my ice cream!
Gone through more pairs or jods, boots and chaps that normal regular clothes. yeah..i only get 1 pair of sneakers throughout a year and a half...i probably get 2 pairs of boots per year! :)
Wait, what normal clothes. everyone says I need a makeover with my clothes..they don't like my breeches
Smell like a barn. yeah..my mom likes to complain! :)
Insist on running the house like the barn. yes..my room is just as neat as the tack shed!! :)
Teach your pets to jump things. ooh yeah..this one especially.my dog knows how to jump sticks.and I stride them so he does it correctly.lmao iim weird.gives me something to do while not at the barn right??
