1. dish face or roman nose? why?
Somewhere in the middle. Roman noses are too blocky for my tastes, but dished faces make the horse look like a fish with buldging eyes.
2. mares or geldings? why?
Mares. I like how attitudinal they are..xD They remind me of me..xD
3. Do you think warmbloods are over-rated?
NO! I love warmbloods. The heavier the build, the better.
4. Describe your dream horse.
Andalusian X Friesian cross stallion, 17.2 hh, left facing cresent moon star, feathered legs. YUMMY!
5. What kind of bit do you use and why?
Curb or plain snaffle. Though, if I'm being honest, I usually just ride in a halter with a leadrope..xD
6. Stock horses or sport horses?
Stock horses! I love them. The bigger, the better. Though, since I love show jumping, I'm also fond of the Sports.
7. Favorite horse coloru?
Dappled palomino varnish roan

Hmmm, probably plain chestnut or perlino. Plain chestnuts are just too common, and perlinos..Their eyes give me the creeps.
9. Dressage or Jumping?
10. Favorite stock horse breed?
Quarter Horse....Unless we're counting like the big drafts. Then I would have to go with Shires.
11. Favorite Hot-blooded breed?
Arabians. Hands down.
12. Favorite cold-blooded breed?
13. Dapple grey or Fleabitten grey?
Dappled. I will always vote dappled. Anything with dapples, it doesn't have to be a grey....
14. Most expensive piece of tack you own?
My saddle. Very old, but in ok condition..and by a GREAT brand name..
15. When did you start riding?
I was on a horse before I could walk...so, almost 17 years.
16. Leather or Nylon halters?
Nylon. Soo much easier to keep clean and such. And more variety in the colors.
17. Apples or Carrots?
Carrots. You can break 'em up and put 'em in your pocket, without worrying about the icky stickiness..
18. Chestnut or bay?
Bay. I just can't STAND chestnut. Unless it's a black chestnut. Those beaties are just AMAZING
19. Palomino or Buckskin?
Palomino, because I used to own one. But if I hadn't owned Lady, I would go buckskin all the way.
20. Lazy horse or Hot horse?
Hot horse! I can't stand those horses that you have to kick and nudge and tap for HOURS before they FINALLY get a move on. And then they only go for like...3 feet.
21. Have you ever been trail riding?
All the time! I love it!
22. Have you ever had to put down a horse that you loved?
Well, yes and no. I wasn't there when he was put down, but when i found out I was extremely sad. R.I.P Lorado.

Two. One western, one english.
24. How many bridles do you have?
One. O.o I don't really ride in a bridle much.
25. Favorite saddle brand?
Errrm....any good quality, all purpose, english saddle. So long as it's good quality, will last a long time, and fits my horse.
26. Beige or White Breeches?
White. They look really good. But if we're talking about being reasonable, then beige. I mean, SERIOUSLY. NO ONE can keep white breeches clean. I mean, suuure, if they're no where NEAR the barn.
27. Least favorite discipline?
Oh dear. I don't think I even have one.. O.o I know my least favorite to watch is probably dressage, but I love everything as far as riding. Maybe endurance? I've never tried it, but I don't think I'd do very well. But still, it would be fun. I'm honestly not sure on this one.
28. Do you own a horse?
I moved in with my dad three years ago, and so I can't have them where I live now. We bought acreage though, so hopefully soon.
29. Do you collect breyer horses?
No. I want to, I have alot of model horses, but I don't have the shelf-space for them and I wouldn't feel right just leaving them in boxes packed away somewhere.
30. Favorite color of saddle pad?
Blue, white, grey, and black. aka my western saddle pad. It belonged to Lady.
31.Private barn or Boarding stable?
Private barn. As in, my own property. No boarding fees, and I can ride whenever i want.

Can't stand them. They suck at riding, they expect everyone to do everything for them, and they never SHUT UP about themselves.

Tovero. I love the designs. Soo unique, every time.
36. Favorite face markings(s)?
Star, or bald face.
37. Why you started riding?
I love horses, and I love being able to have someone to talk to about anything and know they'll be there for me. I love the bond of trust and friendship and love that you can only get from being that close to a horse. I love the feeling I get when a horse trusts me enough to let me on his back, even though he's a pray animal, and I'm a preditor. I love how it feels to be having the worst day EVER, and just run out to the barn and sit with my horse and just cry and blabber, and have my horse's face in mine, letting me know it's all going to work out. That everything WILL be ok. No matter how bad things get, a horse will ALWAYS be there for you. Even if no one else is.
38. Does anyone in your family ride?
Not really. They used to though.
39. Have you ever owned a horse?
Yes. I used to own 4 horses and a pony. Lady, Cupid, Prancer, Sage, and Peanut. QH, QH x Azteca, Azteca, Paint(TB based), and Faeroes Pony. Mare, colt, stallion, mare, stallion turned gelding.

Body position and 'sighting'. To make my jumping better.

Slouching, looking down, keeping my reins too tight or too loose. Letting my feet slack.

She has a really bad up-in-your-face sort of thing going on. And she thinks humans, if they're on the ground, are MADE to be scratching posts. What else could we possibly be used for?? lol
43. How high have you jumped?
I'm honestly not sure. Most of my jumping has been without a proper jump and without a trainer. I'd say probably about 3'4 ft?
44. Have you ever had a dressage lesson?
Not really. I did western pleasure for awhile though. I got bored.

Dark bay! Or else a high-contrast light bay.
