November Questions

Thanks L!

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.

Always smiles!

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?

Didn’t fall off it this show-shocking.

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!

Comparing leg lengths to Deedees.


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.
