Lauren is Crazy You Might Be a Horse Person
In a crowded airport, you try to pass left shoulder to left shoulder. It’s just as frustrating as the warmup ring at a horse show – ask me how I know.
Sometimes you start driving your car and have a moment of panic because you forgot to put your helmet on.
You may or may not tell your grocery cart (or lawn mover) to “Whoa” when you are ready to stop.
You choose lifelong jewelry pieces (like a wedding band) based on whether it’s safe to wear at the barn or not.
$50 is the upper end of your budget for a “nice” pair of work pants. $200 is about average for your budget of a pair of show breeches.

When it’s time to plan your yearly vacation, you suggest staying at La Quinta instead of a nice hotel or resort. You tell your husband it’s so you can spend more money on activities, but really you want reward points for free nights at your favorite hotels by the horse show.
Over half of your immediate family can’t figure out how to unsubscribe from the Dover Email list from the gift certificate they bought you last year.
So those are some of my signs… what would you add to this list?
