What Makes You, You? A Blog Hop.
Saddle Seat Wednesday
Thoughtful Equestrian posed the question What makes someone at the barn (or your trainer) think of you immediately? Since I have no one to ask around here, I turned to Coach Courtney at SSF.
“Whenever I see blue duct tape, I think of you.”
I bring my own halter, brushes, etc. Every item is marked.
(The stool is for bodywork and to keep my brush box above the reach of marking dogs. I decorated it with names of the SSF horses I have ridden.)
“Whenever I open my email, I think of you.”
I send her a lot of email. Sadly, this does not even include the ones I write and delete.

“When ever we win cool stuff, I think of you.”
I love me some useful loot.

I tell you, saddle seat is awesome about awards!
I would have expected:
Noise. Even Saddlebred people think I am loud. However, Reagan [Barnshine] says she can hear me when she’s in the ring. That’s good enough for me. People can turn around and stare at me all they want. I’ll keep cheering for my team.
A Pony-Club level of obsession with stable management.
So, what makes you, you?
