5-Day Challenge

Lauren at She Moved to Texas is having a 5-Day Challenge and it looks fun, so here we go.

1. Most Influential Person on Your Riding

Overall, probably my friend/former employer, Dorrie. She's a tremendous amateur rider with a whole bunch of beautiful horses and I was lucky enough to ride tons of them growing up. Right now, it's definitely Chris Hickey, jumper trainer extraordinaire.

2. Piece of Tack You'd Love to Splurge On

I wouldn't turn down an Antares saddle, of course.

But realistically speaking, I'd love some Cambridge Jumping Boots from Dream Horse Studios.

3. Top 5 Riding Playlist

Eh, I don't really listen to music while I ride. I can't take my mind off what I'm doing for one second most of the time. It's a good thing I don't do musical freestyle, I guess!

4. Most Important Aspect of Your Barn

My horse is there! It's safe, too, which is key.

5. Three Winter Riding Goals

- Get Lex started over jumps for real.
- Solidify her transitions between all three gaits.
- Ride as many good horses as possible.


  1. LOVE those boots from Dream Horse Studios -- I am coveting a pair as well!!

  2. Looooooooove those boots! They're my favorite Dream Horse product.
