It's that time of week again! Dreaming's Hobby Horse Blog Hop! I'll put the linky thing at the bottom so you can join along. It's been quite a bit of fun, even if I did miss last week. Let's hope that my answers this week make up for my absence from last week.
- Have you ever been a victim of the weather when you were riding, or participating in some other sport? You can't ride where we do and not get caught in weather. I've got a couple of blog posts on some of the more hair-raising rides from when I was working as a wrangler: Racing The Storm and Lightning in the Yard. It's bad enough to be caught in weather by yourself or with a friend, but to be out there with inexperienced riders looking to you for direction? Well, that just gives a whole new meaning to the phrase, "Cowgirl Up".
- If you could take a lesson with anyone in the world, who would that be? I work as a crew member for Julie Goodnight's TV show, Horse Master with Julie Goodnight, and I always learn a ton. But I'm learning it from the ground. I love her teaching style, so that puts her at the top of my list. But...I want to take lessons bareback. I've been riding bareback for about six years now and I want to be able to do everything that people in a saddle can do.
- Which season is your favorite? Springsummerfall. Riding in the snow can be pretty. Once. Okay, maybe twice. But then I'm over it. I'd much rather ride in the spring, when things are greening up and blooming.

Ok, now my question to add...how old were you when you first rode by yourself? (Riding behind an adult or in a snuggli doesn't count.)
