TTH: So Jen, how long have you been a member of Top Trail Horse?
JJ: I joined top trail in…. late 2014? I think? Maybe early 2015? I can’t quite remember. It’s been a while!
TTH: Well, that’s all good. It’s been a while 😀 Next question: How many horses do you own? What are their names?
JJ: I have 3 horses now. I have Kiche, my paint mare, who is 13. I got her in 2012. I also have Kricket, my mini mare, who is 7. I got her in 2016. And then I have Killian Jones, my arabian gelding, who is 3. I just got him a few weeks ago.
“My favorite horse movie? THAT’S TOUGH! Does Racing Stripes count?”Jen Joins
TTH: Your horses are just adorable! Back to the interview. Do you prefer breeches or jeans?
JJ: breeches or jeans? NEITHER! I ride in Under Armour heat gear leggings because southern CA is sooooo hot! I’ll have to switch up my gear here soon though, as we’re moving to PA in early June and heat gear leggings won’t do me much good in the snow 😂
TTH: No, leggings are pretty useless in snow 😀 So, tell me Jen, what is your favorite horse movie?
JJ: favorite horse movie is SO TOUGH! Does Racing Stripes count? It’s a zebra… It makes me laugh!
TTH: Who was the first horse you rode, and how old were you?
JJ: the first horse I ever rode was Comanche (not counting a couple of pony rides here and there). Comanche was a 30+ year old Appaloosa gelding when I took my very first riding lesson on him when I was 9 years old. My parents leased him for me that summer for $25/month. He didn’t have any teeth so I would bring him applesauce. We would wander around the bridle path at the barn under my mom’s watchful eye. He was such a good boy .
I certainly enjoyed creating this Member Spotlight. Jen’s choice of horse movie was fabulous😀.
Thank you, Jen, for taking a moment to answer my questions. And don’t forget to Ride On!
