    Most suited to middle-distance swimming (swam year-round as a kid, not too surprising), triathlons (yes to swimming and running, I don't care for cycling), and middle-distance cycling (um, no).

    You know you're a horseperson when you file your fingernails with a farrier rasp. And make sure to sit very lightly when you get on the ATV, and cringe when you see someone sitting down hard on...

    Right now it's usually 8:30/9 am and pm. Winter I feed dinner earlier, about 6ish. I don't have a barn so I'm dependent on daylight/flashlights. On really busy days they might get fed as early as...

    My dark bay TB bleaches pretty badly. The sun here in SD is quite strong and he lives out. I noticed the sunbleaching in mid-May, which means I only had about 3 weeks of pretty black shiny horse. ...

    Hmmm......sometime last summer. I used to ride bareback all the time at my old barn, but now that I ride in some remote areas alone I don't do it often. I actually did my horse's first little four...

    I say chaps, my grandma says shaps (she's lived in SD all her life, I'm an east coast girl).

    Baby wipes, or if they make your skin too dry, simply splashing your face with water to get the worst of the gunk off. Also check your sunscreen--I use oil-free sport sunscreen for my face and neck.
