Who listens to there music while riding? What kind of music when you do?
 
Just curious to know what people's thoughts are of listening to music while you ride, a lot of people listen to teherre IPod while riding or crank a stereo in the arena.

I find it helps me relax, and not over think while riding. Also aware it might not be so safe all the time. I usually end up with a better ride when I listen to music.

I listen to country or pop/rap depending on the mood I am in.

Do you do this too? If so what do you listen to and what are thoughts on how it may help or not help your riding.

Indie and I clash on that... I prefer metal, but she seems intent on dance/pop music (she always perks her ears and listens to it LOL).

I really want to listen to music when I ride, but I haven't been able to locate my MP3 player. It's in my truck...somewhere. lol I am very music-oriented (was a music major my first time around in college, have played piano for going on 21 years, got my full-tuition scholarship to a music-heavy college playing bass trombone [would have had a full-ride scholarship to a major state university and a guaranteed spot in their top jazz ensemble if they hadn't lost all their scholarship money due to grade-fixing for the football team], sing in the church choir...that sort of thing), so music definitely helps me relax.

In my truck, I listen to country only. Sometimes the one CD that will work on my stereo will randomly pop on and it's got an eclectic mix on it (Super Massive Black Hole by Muse, some random a capella groups, The Devil Went Down to Georgia by The Charlie Daniel's Band, that sort of thing). On my MP3 player, it's even more random: Lady Gaga, Will Smith, various country artists, Muse, Indie-pop music (like from India), the list goes on. lol I really need to go out and find my MP3 player. Now that's bugging me!

I have a feeling the Super Mario Song would be amazing for jumping too :rofl:

No, no, no, Tianimalz! You have to jump to the techno version!


I actually had a dream the other night that I was doing dressage on Aires to Muse's Super Massive Black Hole, then we were doing a massive XC course while the same song blasted over the loudspeakers. It was actually pretty epic. lol

LOLLLL!!! Oh jeez, I want to see you jump to that now. You gotta promise if you ever do a jumping montage to Mario music to let me know :rofl:

I listen to mine when I'm not in a crowded place. Like, if its just me, or just me and a couple other people I'll use it and at my trainers the indoor arena always has music and the same with the stalls. At home if I'm in the yard I open up my truck door and crank up the radio.

But alas, if there is too many people I won't because I have to be able to hear everything around me...So unless there is an open stereo and everyone can hear it, I don't.

It won't be for a few years since Aires is only two. :-P

I love listening to music on my ponies~ I'll either have the radio cranked if I'm riding in small part of the field (what we use for a riding ring) or if we go to the bigger field or down the road I'll always have music going on my phone. <3 We listen to pretty much anything~ Happy hardcore, trance, some dubstep, Nevershoutnever, Tm. Revolution, The Drednoughts and so on. Though Shnookie seems to prefer Lady Gaga. xD I have my roomate to thank for that rofl. Now everytime he hears a lady gaga song he remembers perks his ears and starts stepping to the music.

One time while out on the road I didn't have enough battery in my phone to play music, and on the way back someone had lady gaga playing in their driveway, Shnook perked his ears and picked his butt and tried to rush over to the music. He ended up sidestepping into the guys driveway and started trotting on the spot to the beat. Not what I would call a perfect piaffe but me and the guy were too busy laughing, so he just put the music up a little louder and we let him do his little shnookie thing then went on our way. xD <3

For me when I am on Tequila it is my time to enjoy being outside and close to nature so no I do not listen to music as I would rather listen to the birds and stuff. Now when I am in my truck or cleaning house heck yeah I listen to music and it all depends on the mood I am in it could be anywhere from Spainsh music, country music, gospel music, pop rock or classical I like it all except heavy metal were it sounds like they are screaming, and rap where every other word is a cuss word. ; )
