You Might Be A Horse Person If...
You get frequent flyer miles without ever being on a plane
Hay twine is your solution to EVERYTHING
The only hats you own are a cowboy hat and a helmet
Your horse’s family tree is more complete than your own
You are the one stealing all the socks for tail bags
You cluck to people and other animals to make them move
Your dad is concerned about you checking out the body of and flirting with a horse instead of a guy
You have favourite wheelbarrows, shovels and pitchforks
Your nice clothes are the ones without horse hair on them
You are more interested in the trailer than the cute guy standing next to it
Your horse’s stall is cleaner than your room
You plan your entire social life around horse shows and practice
The centrefold of your magazine is a horse…. And there is NO swimsuit edition
You say whoa to the dog
You’d pay £100 + for a show shirt but refuse to pay more than £10 for jeans
Your horse has more shoes than you do
Your boots and hat are not a fashion statement
You spend hundreds of pounds on a show for a 95 pence rosette
horses legs are shaved better than your own
