My husband, Todd, is a huge supporter of me being a horse nerd. He has his own hobbies that he does too, so he isn't physically at the barn very often but he will always help me if I need it.
He had pretty much zero horse knowledge when we started dating but has picked up a lot of things along the way. He sometimes drops these random thoughts about horse-related things that are usually spot-on or hilarious.
On the Eventing 101 clinic:
"Everyone else looked like they were having fun. You looked like you were having a root canal."
Yeah OK, I take things a bit seriously.
"Mystic doesn't seem like the right kind of horse for this. Henry seems more athletic and open to doing weird things. Why don't you make him do this instead?"
"I started to run over to you after you got bucked off, but your mom told me not you. She said you might yell at me."
On Apollo's trail ride last year (after trailer loading issues previously):
"It's good you broke his spirit first by making him ride in that tiny trailer."
Because Apollo was humiliated to ride in a tiny trailer for some reason.
"Apollo was good. That other horse was afraid of nothing, for no reason. What a douche bag."
On riding in general:
"Seems easy enough, you just stay on. I don't really get why people take lessons."
"You should give other people riding lessons. You seem to know how to stay on."
Once Apollo is going a bit better Todd will be riding more, I'm looking forward to a few more quotable moments!
