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

 

Your

horses legs are shaved better than your own
