1.) What is your favor color coat?
I’ll be honest I’m a sucker for a nice black! I like palominos too, but really I think any colour coat with a nice shine is gorgeous! AND DAPPLES!
2.) Favorite breed?
I don’t have one! I love many different breeds for different reasons but don’t have an exact favourite. I guess I could say a warmblood/QH cross because that’s what Lucas is :P Other wise I like warmbloods, TBs, Arabs, Andalusians, and Oldenburgs!
3.) Favorite discipline?
I’ve been having tones of fun with dressage but I really like to go fast, I’ve never done cross country or barrel racing but want to try both! but atm dressage and hunter/jumper are my favourite!
4.) Who do you ride with the most? (If you ride with friends, etc.)
I’m not going to put their names on the internet but I ride with J and B the most, both are boarders and we all seem to end up at the barn at the same time. J has a GORGEOUS percheron cross I’ve got to show you a picture of!
5.) Have you ever ridden an OTTB?
Yes! not right off the track though. I’d love to help retrain one but all the ones I’ve ridden hadn’t raced in years.
6.) How often do you get to ride?
In the summer 4-6 times a week depending on how hot it is! during the school year it was 3-4 times a week.
7.) Favorite snack food?
I LOVE coffee crisps and gummy worms!
8.) Favorite book(s)?
If you haven’t already read the scorpio races it was good! atm I’m reading a book called the raven boys and it is good as well! but my all time favourite book is summer in the city!
9.) What breed(s) of horse(s) do you ride/own at the moment?
I own a warmblood/QH, and also ride an Arab and a TB!
10.) Secret talent?
Hmm… I could whip out a few wicked biology facts for you :P I’ve always loved biology (its what I’m going to school for) and have a nack for remembering the most random facts and telling people who really couldn’t care less!

When I first got Lucas I was told that he would be too much for me to handle. I said that’s fine, I love him the way he is. The next summer we were jumping courses. Then I was told he would be too spooky to ever be ridden off property. I said that’s fine, I love him the way he is. The next summer we began showing the local dressage circuit at the walk-trot level. Then I was told that I had maxed out his potential. I said that’s fine, I love him the way he is. This summer we showed training level and raised out scores by nearly 10% from the last season. Now one of the girls at my barn is telling me to sell Lucas. She says that I’ve got potential and told me that Lucas will never have the movements of a high level horse. I say that’s fine, I don’t care what you think, I love him the way he is. In my lesson yesterday my trainer (the one person who has never told what can’t do) told me to register for the first level classes at the next show. Lucas the too hard to handle, too spooky, maxed out, doesn’t have the movements pony is doing first level dressage. Do not tell me what I can can cannot do with my horse. We have crashed through every boundary set for us and will not stop improving. If you tell me I can’t do something my response will always be the same. That’s fine with me, I don’t need success to be proud of him, I love Lucas the way he is. He’s already won my heart, now he’s just showing off.
