Looks fun!

My addiction, horses in general. Burying your face to warm up in one's neck in their winter fuzzies, nothing better. I just love to ride in general. I've shown in a bit of everything over the years, wp, reining, cutting, penning, hunt seat, jumping, speed events (love love love pole bending), but my favorite classes to show in are showmanship & trail.

Most of my time is spent training. I really enjoy helping them progress into solid riding horses.

OMG I'M from T-town (Tulsa OK) we road that 100 mile trail ride there at robbers route about 30 years ago. do you remember a very young short blond girl that won the open class on a little red Arabian Mare? she won a whole bunch of tack ribbons and a trophies?? that was my baby sister!! we were just dum kids that LOVED to ride. i remember that big ass hill and the judges were standing right at the top around the corner. and the RAIN on man it rained all day and night for one or two of the days ewe were there.... oh yes those were some of my BEST memories of my life :)

my horsey addictions are...

Dressage lately
I've done jumping, trails, working cattle, showing hunters over flats and jumps, loads of pleasure western. I'm really intrigued by dressage and the idea that "dressage IS for EVERY horse"

I'd LOVE to find a good dressage trainer in my area that was big girl friendly :)
I live in deep southern Mississippi. if anyone knows any GOOD instructors let me know plz

Don't know where you are currently living, but there are frequent CTR's at Prague Lake here in Central Oklahoma. I'd love to do it. On my somewhat ill fated trail ride (Dancer's first time out) we crossed some of the permanant obstacles there. Dancer never even batted an eye. Other than a serious lack of speed, she'd be pretty good at it.

I wish to be a competitive dressage/showing junkie... however my green mare, and my constant in/out of the saddle this year hasn't gotten us far. Summer is around the corner here in NZ though, so I'm hoping to make the most of it and get us back on track ^_^

I have no show experience, so no addiction there, but I just cant be without a horse now. I need to see them, smell them, feel them, ride them. Someone on horseforum said it best..If I were to do showing I would need the money and the drive/effort to do it right...and I dont have the money, so it would not be right. not an exact quote
(But in my dreams I am addicted to cutting and traveling to trail ride)
