Note, need to take more conformation shots!
11. Critique your horse’s conformation.
I don't know enough about conformation to give a good critique. Overall I think my horse is fairly well proportioned with good muscling and fine angles, given that our goals are lower-level eventing. I don't think he has any obvious defects.
Interesting and tough question. For jumping, I'd say its when we are asked to remove a stride from a line so that I ask him to open up his stride. For dressage, right now it's definitely stretchy trot.
13. Favorite spa day products.
First is Healthy Hair Care Hair Moisturizer. I use this every day, not just spa day. It does a great job as a mane and tail detangler, and as an overall coat conditioner. Helps prevent winter mud crusties!
Next is Cowboy Magic Detangler & Shine. The trick is to put it on tails when they're damp after a bath, and then let the tail dry naturally before you brush it out. The tail wont get greasy, and it prevents breakage. I also use this product to seriously grease up Hemie's tail and rump before trailer rides to prevent rub issues - works better than a tail guard in my opinion.
14. Three best things about your horse.
1. His snuggly personality.
2. His great work ethic.
3. His enjoyment of shows and other outings.
