Sunshine Award

I just got the sunshine award from Paola's Horse Blog, once again thank you, I really really appreciate it! 

The sunshine award is for people who 'positively and creatively inspire others in the blogoshpere'. The nominee of the award must do the following, thank the person who nominated them, nominate ten bloggers of her own, answer the ten questions given to her and post them and add the Sunshine Award Button to her blog. 

Here are the questions and my answers. 

  1. Mares or Gelding? Personally I'm a geldings fan every time that I have rode a mare something goes wrong, so I'm going to stick with my geldings! 
  2. English or Western? English for me! I've always wanted to try riding western but I have never done it, maybe one day I will but I do love Dressage! 
  3. Do you prefer younger or older horses? Erm... I don't have a preference as long as I get on well with the horse and know that I can trust them that's all that matters. I ride Vettie who is 20+, Gatsby who is 14 and I have rode other horses that are in between or younger than this. 
  4. Have you trained a horse from ground zero? No but I would love to try it.
  5. Do you prefer riding or ground work? I love both, I think ground work can really build up the trust level between the horse and owner. I also love the time that you can just spend grooming. I do love riding, I love the fact that Gatsby helps me become more confident in riding but also other aspects of my life. 
  6. Do you board your horse or keep him at home? I don't have my own horse but one day I will do. 
  7. Do you use all natural things or just commercial stuff (the products you use)? When I get my horse I'd want to use more natural things just because I don't like a lot of chemicals. 
  8. All tacked up or bareback? I've never rode bareback but would love to try it. I like riding without stirrups so will have to wait and see what the future holds. 
  9. Equestrian role model? Good one, but without a doubt Carl Hester! This rider is so inspiring, his whole career and life story makes me want to try more. I think he's a very talented rider and would love to be able to ride like that. But also Fiona, my riding teacher, she's really helped to build my confidence and make me a better rider and if I can do that for somebody else it would be amazing. 
  10. What's your one main while being in the horse world? To have my own horse and have a strong bond with them. Being able to compete would be great but for me it's all about finding that one horse. The horse that I feel like I can do anything with. 
I'm not sure whether I'm supposed to ask new questions or just stick with these ones? So I'll stick with these ones!
