For lack of any interesting content… here is a fun little 10Q blog hop!
What is your earliest, clearest horse memory?
I can’t remember the exact one, but I have many wonderful ones of riding my pony, who I got when I was 6. Trail rides, playdays, pretending to run-away together… the whole gambit!
Describe the perfect summer day.
A summer horse show where the weather is not unbearable (aka maybe 80’s) with a cool breeze, good rounds, and great friends!
Are you reading anything right now? Tell me about it.
I basically read constantly. Currently reading book 2 of the Black Prism series (AMAZING btw!)
Do you follow a celebrity (horsey or non) that you’re embarrassed to say fascinates you?
Nope, not really into anything celebrity.
What is your single most biggest horsey dream or goal?
Realistically, I want to one day have an an AO hunter that I can do 3’6 on and consistently ribbon at rated shows. Unrealistically- show at indoors on said hunter. (Are your ears burning Rio?!)
If you were at Starbucks right now, what would you order?
My go to since I was like 13 would be a sugar free soy vanilla latte. In the summer I go for an inced coffee with 2 pumps of classic syrup (1/2 the regular amount).
What is your biggest equine pet peeve?
People who blame their horses, or act like horses have a vendetta, such as “he is just a jerk”. No he is not, he is either, confused, scared, hurting, etc.
With everything going on politically and in the media, tell me, do you follow it religiously? Tune it out? Or something in between?
Not religiously, but I listen to NPR every morning on the way to work, and frequently read news articles. I can name most of the top people in D.C. and leaders of foreign countries.
If you had to show your horse to a song, what would you choose?
Cliche, but classical. Hunter ring playing classical in the background=perfection. Vivaldi is one of my faves.
What are you most looking forward to this summer?
Moving to the new facility with Trainer at the end of June (3 arena!!!) and getting Rio all healed and legged up for the fall shows.
