Greed: most expensive piece of tack you own?
I don’t have a horse so I don’t own any tack but the most expensive horse riding item I own is actually my Dublin raincoat ($150ish), I’m a student so I don’t have huge amounts of money and what extra I do have I much rather spend on riding lessons so I get most of my stuff on sale or find the best price online.
Wrath: what exercise/lesson do you have a love/hate relationship with?
Jumping grids, if you mess up the first jump at least in my case I tend while trying to correct myself forget about the next jump coming. 😕 They are however really good for your position and technique.
Gluttony: what is your favourite thing you own/wear?
Probably my helmet, I think I’ve prattled on enough in past posts about how much I love it!
Sloth: what do you always forget/neglect riding/at the barn?
I can’t say there’s anything at the barn I neglect but when I’m riding I have a bad habit of forgetting my hand/arm position and dropping my hands and straitening my elbows.
Pride: what is your best strength?
My love for horses, I once got told that Patrick always gives his best when I’m riding him and that they thought that was because of how much I care! I was a bit chuffed with that.
Lust: what is your ideal colouring on a horse?
Grey, either dappled or flea bitten. Palominos are also beautiful.
Envy: what is one thing you wish you could learn/improve on?
Jumping, having more confidence and being better at judging distances or getting better flection and movement in dressage.
