What do you answer when there’s no right answer?
In case you’re not familiar with the hypothetical-situation game ‘Would You Rather,’ here’s a quick rundown of the rules: everyone takes turns posing a question to the group with two options, and everyone else needs to choose one or the other. Example: would you rather give up cheese, or chocolate, for the rest of your life?
Gather up your barn buddies and get ready for a round of Would You Rather, equestrian-style.
Would you rather …
… have only a heated indoor arena or only a world-class outdoor arena?
… run out of vet wrap or toilet paper?
… have a horse that never loses its shoes but is terrible for the farrier, or a horse that constantly loses its shoes but is excellent for the farrier?
… lose a boot in the mud, or trip and fall in the manure pile?
… get free lessons from a local trainer for life, or get one free lesson from George Morris?
… eat your horse’s grain or eat a sandwich that you dropped in the barn aisle?
… smell thrush or a dirty sheath, if you were stuck smelling one thing for an entire day?
… go fox hunting without stirrups, or jump a hunter round without a bridle?
… get bitten or get kicked?
… fall off in front of everyone at the barn or have an epic save with no one around to witness it?
