ABOUT YOUR HORSE
I don't own a horse for real, but in my head....
Show Name:
Barn Name:
Age:
Gender: gelding
Color: Chestnut
Breed: Thoroughbred
Height: 16+ hh
Years Owned: For as long as I can remember

OTHER QUESTIONS

Have you ever fallen off? Yes plenty of times
Have you ever been bit by a horse? Yes, one bit my thumb so hard I almost passed out, that's what I get for playing with his mouthy lips though And one also attacked my boob..that wasn't fun.
Have you ever been kicked by a horse? Yes, in the chest. Long story short, it was when I was younger and didn't know better/wasn't thinking at the time. My mom was holding a hind foot for me because I wasn't feeling very good so I crouched down behind the hoof and started picking Then BAM! Right in the chest, thankfully I was close to the horse and only got the wind knocked out of me a bit.
Have you ever been seriously injured by a horse? No, I have a scar from the bite on my thumb. Actually that's possibly a lie, I have back issues, arthritis in my lower spine due to an injury but my doctors and myself don't know exactly what it's from. I refuse to blame horses! Although I know it is very possible that's where the injury is from...I also took a few hard falls skiing which I blame as the culprit since riding actually helps my back.
What is the highest you have jumped on a horse? Sadly about 2ft...I really feel like I'm capable of more but when I took lessons the instructors were trying to preserve the lesson horses and not have them jumping high. Then when I started riding horses for other people they always seem to be out of shape and lack proper training for controlled correct jumping. So I haven't gotten to jump very high yet.

Show or Pleasure Can't choose

ABOUT YOUR HORSE Don't own one. Never have.


OTHER QUESTIONS

Have you ever fallen off? Yes, as a child when a pony I was renting suddenly reared up. Also another pony knocked me off by going under a low tree branch.
Have you ever been bit by a horse? No, but one snapped at me, annoyed because I was brushing him (I know- what's up with that???).
Have you ever been kicked by a horse? Nope, but I was kicked by a pet rat I owned many years ago! Not quite the same.
Have you ever been seriously injured by a horse? Nuh-uh. Haven't been around them that much.
What is the highest you have jumped on a horse? Hahaha, none.

Rinding Indoors or Out - I don't know what 'rinding' is, but I prefer to RIDE outdoors.

Mare or Gelding - Don't really have a preference, but probably gelding. No, wait- A Wild Black Stallion Running With His Mane Flying In The Wind....
