A few of my old instructors that I unfortunately don't work with anymore.

12. Who have you learned the most from in your horse life?

1. How old were you when you first rode a horse? Unsure. Under the age of ten.

2. What was your first horse? I'd say the first horse I really bonded with was the little chestnut QH I rode for a while when I first started taking lessons. He spooked at some tarps outside and flipped in the stall my first lesson with him. While I happened to be in said stall. But once we was warmed up for the day he was really a pleasant guy. Name was Chalk.

3. What is your favorite breed? Don't have one; like 'em all. I do have a soft spot for drafts and mustangs, however.

4. What is your favorite discipline to ride? English.

5. What is your favorite horse color and gender? I am partial to any of the roans or solid black horses. I also love blood bays, and chestnuts with flaxen manes and tails paired with sharp white markings. :) Oh and I musn't forget greys...or duns!! With the stripes on the legs especially. All the mares I have ever been around were waspy so at this point in the game I have to say I prefer geldings.

6. Who is your favorite horse of all time?
Not owned by you: Glimmer & Seabiscuit

7. What traits do you look for most in a horse? Intelligence, a kind and gentle heart toward humans at least and a will to work. I say "at least" because I seem to keep on getting introduced to these weirdos who can't stand other horses at all. :p They've always been perfectly pleasant otherwise. lol

8. What trait in a horse do you most despise? A mean spirit, even though this generally means they've been mishandled at some point and it's not really their fault.

9. What do you like about the horse world? The horses of course.

10. What upsets you about the horse world? The multitudes of snobs that come along with it. As well as the ****** who are abusive or heavy handed with their horses, or think them nothing more than things and moneymakers.

11. If you could spend the day with any horse person, who would it be? I have no idea!

12. Who have you learned the most from in your horse life? My mother and my very first instructor, Jason Fish.

13. What type of rig do you haul? A suburban and whatever misc. trailer the rescue asks we haul that day.

14. What is your favorite breed of dog? Don't have just one. :p I like corgis, mastiffs, mutts and borzois. Mutts are the best. I could just be biased though.

15. What type of music do you play in your barn/truck? In the car -- anything really. Metal, industrial, classical (romantic and baroque periods generally), dark ambient, and some hot blues/jazz are more common these days.

16. What trainer/horse person inspires you? Any of the true horse whisperers.

17. What is your favorite horse book? Don't have one, but I was HUGE into the Pony Pals series when I was little. Like, freakishly so.

18. What is your favorite horse magazine? Horse Illustrated I suppose.

19. What is your favorite horse movie? Black Beauty. 20 and it makes me cry every time.

20. What horse websites to you frequent most? The Horse Forum, dreamchaserpmu.org

21. What is your motto for dealing with horses? Respect and confidence are the mutual building blocks for a healthy horse/rider relationship. I believe in always using a kind hand and doing your absolute best to understand your equine partner mentally to ensure you are each operating on the same wavelength.

22. If you could have one ride on any horse in history, who would it be? Gosh once again I have no idea. Don't think I could handle any of those spirited TBs I admire so much...most likely the Headless Horseman's horse, do you think he'd let me? :lol:

23. What is your ideal horse day? A long, leisurely trailride with family and/or friends in the mountains.

24. What is your favorite horse chore? Grooming. Mucking is a form of meditation.

25. What is your least favorite horse chore? Dont have one. Handling hay is a bit of pain as I'm severely allergic to it, but that's nothing that can't be remedied with a good pair of gloves and long sleeves.

26. What horses do you own now? None at present...but hopefully not for long!

27. If you didn't have a horse, what would you be doing? The same thing I've been doing for the past twenty horseless years of my life -- dreaming big and helping out at stables and other centres so I'm not entirely without. :)

13. What type of rig do you haul? No rigs being hauled, one day though! One day!

1. How old were you when you first rode a horse? 3 days. I'm told that when I was three days old, and I visited my uncle, he was out riding his old gelding, Scooter, and he picked me up and held me in the saddle in front of him and we walked around the round pen. (My uncle is probably the number one reason I'm so into horses!)

2. What was your first horse? A mixed breed old grey mare, Frosty, that my dad got in a trade with his dad for a pool table; she wasn't broke, but was gentle enough I could sit on her back and be led around. Dad just kept her around to keep the weeds down. We also had a shetland pony named Shilo taht dad got when he bought a truck from a farmer... he went to pick it up, and Shilo was tied to the bumper; the man said he wouldn't sell the truck unless the pony went with it. Shilo was saddle broke, but we never had a saddle.

3. What is your favorite breed? Quarter Horses!

4. What is your favorite discipline to ride? Western, of course.

5. What is your favorite horse color and gender? Maybe roan (red, blue, bay, any of them), or buckskin. Favorite gender is mare!

6. Who is your favorite horse of all time?
Owned by you: In temperment, Bandit and 2-Pak; for riding, Tanner and Magic
Not owned by you: Umm... maybe my friend's horse, Bailey. I keep threatening to steal him. Or my uncle's old horses, Sunny and Scooter.

7. What traits do you look for most in a horse? Even tempered. I can deal with anything the horse throws at me, so long as they aren't hot headed, stubborn, and spoiled!

8. What trait in a horse do you most despise? Hot headed horses that are just all out wound up! A friend of mine has a barrel horse that if you let the reins loose, she'll bolt off like mad, and she's always dancing and prancing around. Damned good barrel horse, pretty, has a good head on it, it's just so worked up, it'd drive me up a wall!

9. What do you like about the horse world? It's so varied! People can be from opposite ends of the Earth, and ride totally different styles, on different breeds of horses, but can still bond over the same love for horses!

10. What upsets you about the horse world? People who only have eyes for the blue ribbon, and don't care what they have to do to get it. People who are stuck up, and have a holier-than-thou attitude about their horses.

11. If you could spend the day with any horse person, who would it be? I don't really follow any trainers... maybe Dale and Mark? Or Katie... I dunno. Just some of my horse-people friends from around here, the people that I admire -- I've always had a hard time admiring some guy in TV with a high-dollar horse; I'd much rather learn from the people who will plop down in the parking lot of the local show and answer my questions, critique my rides, and just be my buddy, maybe in exchange for an occasional soda or something.

12. Who have you learned the most from in your horse life? My horses! They've taught me much more than any one person has!

13. What type of rig do you haul? A red 2000 Dodge 2500 with a 5.9L Cummins engine and a three-horse-slant Sundowner trailer with a tack room (slant dividers removed and the whole trailer rigged with interior and exterior lighting; Also, there's 110v electricity wired into the tack room, with flourescent lighting.)
