Favorite horses on ask? ;)
Zuri ;). I'll probably end up leaving someone's horse out and then they'll end up getting butt hurt, so I'm not going to answer lol
That will be funnnn! Derby Mania is my favorite show of the year and the most expensive hahaha🙃 hopefully the horse this week is really good and if he is I'll do children's I'm not sure if I can move down to pre children's but I may be able to since I've never shown him before!Arden P
I'm really excited for it! My parents are probably going to have a heart attack when my trainer tells them how much it's going to cost 😂. I hope he's really good for you, but either way the show will still be so much fun!!!
How high is 12-14 eq
2'6. Although I think it varies by show
Yesss😂 are you gonna do children's or pre children's? Idek what in doing yet I'll probably do jr metal classes tooArden P
Probably pre children's since it's my first show on Zuri and I haven't shown in ages lol. That'll be fun! I would love to do a medal class, but I think my trainer's sister is riding Zuri in the higher classes, so I can only do so many classes before Zuri gets too tired, sadly.
favorite outfit to school in before a show and favorite outfit to show in at a show (horse and rider)
If I'm schooling the day before, I'll usually wear a v-neck t-shirt and either navy Ariats or tan TS. If I'm schooling the morning of the show I'll just wear my show clothes (without my show coat) and usually a vest over my show shirt unless it's too hot. For showing, I wear my R.J. Classics show jacket, my Ariat show shirt, tan TS, and my SSG show gloves. For every outfit I always wear my One K helmet, my Ralph Lauren black belt, Zocks, and my Ariat tall boots. If I'm just schooling I use a run-down pair of my SSG gloves.
Last time you rode? What did you do?
This morning!! I'm kinda just trying to perfect my distances and my flatting form. Although Zuri did decide to be a derp and not go over a jump that she's gone over at least a hundred times haha
What do you think you'll show in? I wish the classes weren't so big ahah there's always at least 24 in my classes if not 35 😑😂 they should spilt them ahhaArden P
Well there's going to be one extra person in your classes this year 😉😂. I'm doing the 12-14 eq, too! I wish they would lol
Ponytail or hairnet? (Left photo is not mine)
How often do the horses at your barn get turned out? If they go out, how many horses are in each paddock?
They're in during the day and out at night in the summer, and they're in at night and out during the day in the winter. They each have their own paddocks, except for the minis
What did you do today?
I was at a church softball tournament from 10:00-4:00. It was so incredibly hot, but it was so much fun!! (We won!!!)
When you and your friends go to shows out of the state, do you usually go with your trainer and share rooms with him or not ?
I don't really go to shows out of state because Tryon is just down the road, but if we do stay in a hotel my parents usually get a room and I'll either stay with them or stay in a room with my trainer
Have you ever been called to school principal’s office? If yes, for what?
Yes, but only to clear things up or to tell the truths from the lies. I was a teacher's kid, so pretty much all of the teachers trusted me haha
I'll be able to school the day before :)) are you doing all three days?Arden P
That'll be good! I don't know if I'm going :(. My trainer hasn't said any more about it, but it is still a month away, so maybe she'll bring it up when it's closer to the show
Yeah same with the job. All these people are like it's better to have fun, but i'm like I need money to have fun lol
I know, and you also have to think about retirement. I'd rather work to make money and have a large sum in retirement than have no money in retirement and be constantly stressed
Oh and I'm officially leasing a horse for the show so that will be interesting!! My trainer is currently searching for one! It will be so much fun riding a nice horse even though it's not the same as riding your own :((Arden P
Well, at least it wasn't anything too serious! That'll be fun! Will you get to practice on it beforehand or just for warmup at the show?
Would you rather choose a high paid office job or a low paid adventurous job?
High paid office job. Money=horses. Horses=happiness
A compliment, I suppose.
Yea ahha! Although I would love to lease her out (I still want to try) in order to get a new horse we need money to help with it, and if the lease failed she would have no where to go! If I do sell her she will be sold with a buy back policy so if they sell her I get asked first! But idek😂Arden P
That's so difficult! I see what you mean with the leasing situation. If you do sell her, I would do a major background check 😂😂.
bliss is not lame but when we right lead canter she kicks out her right back leg trying to cross canter. She's not lame tho while cantering or trotting it's something with the sand and that leg because she doesn't do it at home! Idk hah but I get to miss some school tomorrow to ride her for the vetArden P
At least you get to miss school😉😂
The weekend to show! And then possibly selling bliss for something new idk it's so hard 😩🙃
You sound so busy 😂. Maybe Ruby will be good by the time the show rolls around; it would be cool to lease for the show, though!! Oh, no! I thought you were going to lease her out?
