Blog Hop: 7 Deadly Sins

In honor of Fat Tuesday and because I am so incredibly ill, I couldn't go out to see the girls..


Seven great things/strengths in your riding life
  1. Sticky seat
  2. Ridden many different breeds, types, and gaits of horses
  3. Willing to give most things a go
  4. Supportive husband--despite his griping, he helps out at the barn and will be there to help with the horses
  5. Some incredibly awesome horse friends
  6. Ability to make horses materialize for people...looking for a horse, I can probably find one
  7. Spotting lameness. 


Seven things you lack or covet for you or your horse
  1. Pretty bling bling dressage browband
  2. Farm to keep the semi ferals on
  3. Money to show more regularly
  4. New truck & trailer
  5. Shorter workday to get out and do things with other horse people during normal hours
  6. More Back on Track equipment for myself and the ponies!
  7. A body that doesn't hurt all the time

This would work.  Yes, please.


Seven things that make you angry
  1. When people are obnoxious to the barn staff
  2. Hot horses being put away wet in the winter
  3. Sore/lame horses that people think are being "naughty"
  4. My ability to be a crooked rider
  5. Horse trainers taking short cuts
  6. The "look" of many Arabian halter horses
  7. People showing so many horses behind the vertical
Seven things you neglect to do or cut corners on

  1. Saying thank you more often to those that help me
  2. Organizing my tack locker.  What a war zone.
  3. Figuring out how to get videos/pictures of myself riding.  I have very few.
  4. Cleaning/oiling tack
  5. Washing saddle pads more frequently
  6. Updating my blog more frequently
  7. Taking more lessons.  But that is kind of tied to money.

See I do ride.  I may have lost my bridle or marbles however.

Seven most expensive things you own for your horse

  1. Saddles:  I have a few.  County close contact, Circle Y Equitation, Arabian Saddle Company dressage saddle
  2. Arabian show halters
  3. Winter turnout blankets.  I have many.
  4. Tall boots.  Which I now need to have stretched because my calf is a little too fat.
  5. Horse board
  6. Show fees
  7. Truck & trailer, even though they are quite a bit older
Seven guilty pleasures

  1. Buying the cool molasses horse treats
  2. Looking at saddles for sale.  Seriously.  What is it with saddles?
  3. Same with bits...I'd love to buy more bits
  4. Purple horse items.  Hoof picks, brushes, bags, saddle covers, etc.
  5. Having two horses.
  6. Having the money to keep accumulating more horse "stuffs"
  7. Winning ribbons
Two horses=so many more bills


Seven things you love about horses and riding
  1. So much to learn.  So complex.
  2. Competition aspects
  3. Bloodlines & pedigrees.  So fun to delve into genetics.
  4. Camaraderie
