December's 10 Questions & Happy New Year!


Bohemian & I wish you a happy and safe New Year's celebration!


And because there's no minute like the last minute, 

1. What size horse do you prefer to ride? I love them all shapes and sizes. I guess I prefer the ones that are naturally couch-like, for obvious reasons.

2. Do you school in tall boots or half chaps and paddock boots? Tall boots.

3. What do you do with your ribbons after shows? Most go into a plastic tupperware box in the garage. The ones that have special meaning to me get hung up in my horsey storage area. I also have some in a tall vase as decoration in the house. 

4. Do you ride/board at a large show barn or a small private barn?  Its a large barn, but not a show barn. Multiple trainers are based out of the facility, and some of them regularly show while many don't. The facility does not host shows or other events.

5. Have you ever seen a horse give birth? Not in real life. But I've seen foals that are just a few hours old. Pretty special.

6. What is your favorite breed? Saddlebreds and Thoroughbreds. Maybe I'll buy or breed an ASBxTB cross one day. Thoughts? Not sure if it would be hot enough...  ;]

7. Favorite tack brand? I'm not enough of a tack ho to really differentiate based on personal experience, but I'll go with Stubben since I love my saddle by them, like their fancy bits, and have heard excellent things about their other tack.

8. Would you ever buy used tack? Yes, 99% of everything I have is used.

9. Ever been on a carriage ride? Yes! Lots of fun!

10. How often do you go to the tack store? A few times a year. Luckily my friend and barn-mate works there, so she kindly brings me my purchases so I rarely have to drive there.

  1. happy new year!! somehow i'm kinda shocked your barn doesn't host any shows -- since i'm always so jealous of the awesome facilities! (don't you have a water obstacle in one of your rings???)
