How old is the youngest/greenest horse you’ve ridden? 4-5 year old sale gelding back in the high school days.
How old is the oldest horse you’ve ridden? Is dinosaur a term? We had this ANCIENT school horse who had to be pushing 27+ when I first started riding.
Were you scared of horses when you first started riding? Nope, it was sheer joy.
Would you say you’re a more nervous rider or a confident rider? Most days I’m pretty confident. I will say that I am very self-preservation based though. Do not like getting hurt.
Biggest pet peeve about non-horse people around horses? Hmmm good question. Maybe when they talk about the time they rode and the horse acted up and it was “so bad”. Whatever peeps.
A time you’ve been scared for your life? I recently rode a friends horse who kind of lost her mind with me and was WILD. I very rarely feel as scared as I was on her. It was not okay, and I was afraid both of us were going to get hurt.
Have you ever fallen off at show? What happened? I like to fall off in schooling, so usually the night before. When I was 11 I was doing a little bareback class and the old man Morgan horse I was riding bounced me right off at the trot. I guess that counts too?
What’s a breed of horse you’ve never ridden but would like to ride? Bring me all the pony breeds. But it would need to be a large, because I’m 5’10”. I never got to suffer the wrath of the tiny ponies, and miss it!
Describe the worst behaved horse you’ve ridden? Sadly I would say that when we were still asking O to jump around, and she was blatantly not interested she could become pretty nasty.
The most frustrating ride you’ve ever had? Ugh, hands down. This day.
