1. Pros of your horse or the horse you ride most.
Well I ride all of my trainer’s horses pretty consistently so I’ll just do a little for all three of them.
Jay - he’s literally the most willing horse and he tries so hard even if he doesn’t understand and he will save your ass if you take him to a shitty distance. It won’t be pretty, but it’ll be enough to get you out of there.
Minnie - This horse is like a sports car. She’s small and compact but she has an engine and she could jump the moon if you asked her to so she’s great for jump work.
Flash - He has a background in English and Western so he’s perfect for training people on anything up to like, first level dressage and stuff. He also puts up with a lot of shit.
2. Cons of your horse or the horse you ride most.
Jay - long long long and weak in the back. Fortunately this is something that will be semi-corrected once he’s had some consistent work for a while.
Minnie - short neck, short-strided, can get a bit of an attitude.
Flash - lazy, lazy, lazy, and long. Sometimes he’s an ass and just refuses to pick up the correct lead at the canter.
35. Does your horse love to play?
I don’t have one but Jay is a people horse so I’m sure he’s going to prove to be the playful sort at least where we’re concerned.
94. Does your horse have any weird quirks?
Minnie loves birthday cake Oreos and graham crackers.
why horse things cost many dollars
Warm up jumps always seem to look bigger
My horse? A ham? Nahhhh
this horse is so gorgeous unf
