21. Favorite classes to watch
I love watching big jumper classes. Jumpers is one of the few disciplines where I can sit back and just enjoy watching instead of getting a little twitchy to get on my horse and try to emulate what I've just seen. Five and six foot jumps are never in my future, nor is memorizing more than one jump course in a day.
|although let's be honest. we'd be puh-retty fucking good at it!|
22. What's in your cooler at horse shows?
Oh my god, candy. So. Much. Candy. I pack sandwiches, fruit, chips, granola bars, and gobs of water and Gatorade, but it's all overshadowed by the amount of chocolate I pack. I have hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), and while that means I
Okay. Yes I am.
|ironically i was super sick this day and clearly gasping for air.|
which still doesn't excuse the above jumping picture, but LOLZ.
23. One thing about showing (or riding in general) you wish you could change?
The cost. You don't really need to get paid to put on a show, do you Organizer? Free entries for all!
|free ribbons for all!|
(i am such an albino.)
24. Your ringside crew
Only Hubby comes to shows with me. Poor Hubby. No one else at my barn events, I'm never going to pay to bring a trainer along with me, and my family is split between Illinois and California. So Hubby gets to tag along with a rub rag, bottle of water, and the camera while simultaneously controlling two dogs (who are fortunately very good show dogs) and dealing with my neuroses. Poor, poor Hubby.
|he amuses himself by making the dogs jump the xcountry jumps.|
25. Best prizes
What isn't a good prize?! I want ribbons, neck sashes, coolers, saddle pads, money, and even fucking picture frames. Fuck yeah, prizes!
|first year as an event pony.|
must win more swag!
