Happy thanksgiving!

I saw this survey on a couple different blogs, starting with Viva Carlos and thought it looked fun - everybody's doing it :) 

Splurge or save: 
1. saddle save-ish - it's used and nice, not super fancy but it works!
2. board save as much as I can w/o compromising care, I really lucked out at finding an amazing, cheap place!
3. halter well, Jetta has three halters - two cheap ones and one fancy one for shows, so in between
4. bit  save, try to buy used ones
5. bridle save - most of my bridles are used, I actually only have one I bought new and it was on sale
6. saddle pad  save
7. trailer well, it was expensive, but when compared to other trailers, it was a save :)

First thing that comes to mind: 
1. Haflinger Cute!
2. Quarter Horse Jazz and Grady, my two most amazing horses
3. Thoroughbred Jetta
4. Warmblood Someday...
5. Welsh Cob So freaking adorable! And talented. I'd love a North Forks Cardi baby someday :)

This or That:
1. English or Western - I do both but have started to prefer english
2. tall or short - tall horses are my favorite :)
3. trail ride or beach ride - love both, but beach rides are so much fun
4. long mane or short mane - easier to maintain
5. hunters or jumpers
6. XC or barrel racing
7. outdoor arena or indoor arena - at least when it's nice out!
8. trot or canter 
9. canter or gallop - the faster the better
10. paddock boots, tall boots, or cowboy boots
11. horse shoes or barefoot - barefoot all the way!
12saddle or bareback - all my horses except Tux have super bony backs - no thank you!
