10 Questions

So from L. Williams to 'Fraidy Cat Eventing to me...

I guess I'll give this a go because it's pouring at and I'm not ready to run out and clean my stall and I have writing on the brain...



1. What is your biggest source of caffeine that gets you through the day?
Well, obviously I love my coffee but it doesn't do much for me these days so if I need a boost.
Isagenix has a thing called an E+ Shot... Looks like a 5 Hour Energy but not filled with sh*t.
I already run pretty high through out the day so if I'm feeling a bit behind, this gives me exactly what I need.
Do not take with alcohol... Ever.



2. Do you honestly think your trainer is the best trainer for you?
So unfortunately I don't really have a trainer per say right now.
And if you want to count K (which is coming up below), I absolutely think she's a great match for us right now.
And if you want to talk about the two amazing trainers I just worked with?
Sinead Halpin and Eric Horgan?
Yes, yes, YES!


3. One token of advice a fellow rider/trainer/horse person told you that you still remember to this day.
"Be as hard as you have to be, but soft as you can be."
"We pat our men and our dogs, we rub our women in our horses."
and of course... my favorite



4. If riding meant costing your family so much money that they'd basically be on the poverty line, or making your family terribly unhappy, would you still do it?
Luckily... That's not something I have to worry about right now.
So it'll be something that I'll worry about later... If needed.

5. Would you ride while pregnant?
Probably...
The question is, will Brantley be more reliable by then?


6. How do you tell when a horse likes someone/has bonded with you or someone else?
I feel like you just... Know.
You can just see there's a level of trust and threshold of bullshit they'll deal with from a person.
I know for a fact I can tell when Brantley doesn't appreciate someone... Especially guys.
He'll have no problem parking himself in between me and a suitor (who doesn't usually last long).

I'm not going to post a picture because I am thoroughly disturbed right now.
On my Google search for a picture of a horse standing between a girl and a guy...
I found a picture of a naked girl... Inside of a dead horse...
IINNNSSSIIIDDDEEE

I cannot unsee this and I may run and vomit before I continue...



7. Are horses capable of loving, in your opinion?
Absolutely... There's no question and no explanation needed.
But then there's this... Which goes between horse and rider as well as person to person.


8. If you could have one horse from your past come back for 5 minutes, who would it be, why, and what would you do with them in those 5 minutes?
One last chance to sit on LB and just wrap my arms his neck just to say thank you for saving me.
Thank you for giving me the chance to love another horse as much as I love you.


9. Should a trainer also be a friend, or should it be a student/teacher relationship?
I definitely think it's possible to have a trainer be a friend.
A trainer is someone that you look up to and learn from right?
But this is also coming from someone who doesn't have a lot of trainer experience.


10. One piece of advice/training you were given by a trainer or mentor that you look back on now and view it as incorrect?
Honestly, this is the hardest question yet.
Maybe it's because I still have remnants of a naked chic laying inside of a horse like Luke Skywalker...
I feel like maybe the only thing I didn't take something from was when I saw a "trainer" punch a horse...
In the face...
Because he wouldn't back up.
But I feel like that's just wrong on so many levels.
Other than that I think things work for different horses and different people.
Everyone is entitled to their opinion and style of riding and if it works for you (abuse aside) then have at it.
But if it doesn't, give something else a try before your horse breaks you... Because it will happen.

Well that was fun!
Definitely more than I expected to get through.
Please do not Google "When your horse doesn't like your boyfriend" ... ever
But the Blog was also called, "How Not to Be a Crazy Bitch" ... Still fucked up.
