More Tracy 5 day challenge fun!
11. Critique your horse’s conformation
This one is hard, because I am not a conformation expert.
I think he’s pretty well put together? He definitely has a high/long wither and a long, flat back. Hind end is on the weak side. His shoulder angle could probably be a little bit better? Honestly I don’t know. I’d love for any of you conformation buffs to offer your feedback in the comments!
12. Horse’s favorite riding exercise
Simon loves to jump. Loves it. Beyond that, we both enjoy exercises where there are lots of tight turns and rollbacks. Favorite jumping exercises include jumps on a circle and doing a rollback to another rollback. The more technical it is, the happier we are.
13. Favorite spa day products
I like Sore No More Gelotion as well as Absorbine liniment. For a hot summer day, I love a Vetrolin liniment bath.
14. Three best things about your horse
He is relatively spook free (as soon as this is published, he’ll spook and dump me off). He loves to jump and I know that if I line him up he will go over the fence or me. He is a trier, and will go and go and go and rack his little brain to figure out what it is that I want. Genuinely, he wants to be a good horse and do what we ask of him. I couldn’t ask for a better work ethic!
15. Favorite picture of your horse
For some reason I really like this one. I have no idea why though!
