|Girly colors! Only color they had but its actually super cute|
6. Favorite equestrian book/movie
I am not a big book person but some of my favorite movies are The Long Shot (oldie but goodie and also how I named Tolo!), Seabiscuit, Dreamer, and National Velvet. I could go on!
7. Most common riding misconception
That riding is easy! I just laugh at people that say it is easy but I know that they obviously have never done it before. Now, for me, it is very easy to get on my horse and just walk/trot/canter around but it is NOT easy to actually work on our dressage! Talk about muscles!
8. 2 riding strengths and 1 weakness
-I would say that although I do not drill in the arena 6 days a week I am generally good at working on and improving on things I learn in my lessons. Because I cannot afford to take them as often as I would like I feel like I really need to take advantage of the ones I get
-Also I think I have pretty steady and quiet hands which for obvious reasons horses like!
-A weakness I have (or 2 that go hand in hand) is that I am kind of standoffish about working on brand new movements outside of my lessons because I don't feel like I know what they are supposed to feel like and am worried that I am teaching them the wrong way and then I get frustrated!
9. Least favorite thing about riding horses
How freaking expensive it is! I always feel like if I had the opportunities that some young kids have had, thanks to their rich parents, I could be so much further in my riding. Im not going to lie, I get jealous seeing all these people riding in every event of the season, lessoning weekly, going to clinics, etc.
10. What does my horse eat
I definitely fall into the bad horse parent in this category but I do know the basics.
-Daily turnout in pasture
-AM/PM small scoop of some low fat grain (this is where the bad mom part comes in) w/1 scoop Horseguard at night
-1 flake grass hay at night when in stall
