November's 10 Questions

Have you ever owned a horse?
I currently own Max and he is my first horse.

What is your favorite aspect of your discipline?
Building that subtle communication and connection with my horse. I feel it is gentle on the horse when done well correctly.

What pet peeves do you have concerning your discipline?

That black and white are the only acceptable colors. Also, no shiny sparkly stuff. Colors and sparkles don't affect technique and skill, so I don't see why there can't be more freedom with that.

Do you do barn chores?

Sometimes but not often. I try help out when I have time to.

What is your least favorite barn chore?

Pushing a huge wheelbarrow full of poop and dumping it in the manure pile.

What do you consider the worst vice in a horse?

Biting (hard) and rearing.

What saddle brand is your favorite?

I don't know :(

Do you ride with a quarter sheet in winter?

No, but it does sound comfy. I might this winter!

Does your horse wear boots? What kind?

Max wears black Centaur double Velcro boots in medium in his fronts and he has them on 24/7. He also has a pair of sparkly turquoise Professional's Choice Ballistic No-Turn in large for the days when he feels a little more showy ;)

Full seat or knee patch breeches?

For comfort I like the knee patch. But for maximum stickiness I like the full seat.
