Offal... Liver and bacon, kidneys, heart and I quite like tripe and onions but haven't had it for years.

A bit, or even a lot, of bling, but only on western tack. English tack makers are crap at it!

Anchovies.

Synthetic saddles (but must have a leather one for posh!)

Agreed on prawn cocktail crisps, but especially Skips. I work, indirectly, for the company that makes them so they're always available to snack on in the office. It's terrible.

Brass clencher browbands. All the ponies had them when I was a kid but they seem completely out of fashion now. Blue has got one waiting to be worn on our first dressage outing!

Hi-viz. Some people have a matchy-matchy problem. I have a clashy-clashy problem. If we aren't wearing at least three different colours to hack, I feel invisible.

Mares, especially chestnut ones
Bling - when I was younger I only liked plain tack, now I like shiney things
Coloured tack, I have got a purple bridle with a sparkly brow band, I don't care how chavy it looks
Wintec saddles, I ride in a wintec stock saddle & love it
matchy mathy - I don't have any but think it looks nice

Pulling blanket weed out of water troughs - In the summer I like to stick my arms in every water trough on the farm and pull out all the blanket weed. It is so satisfying. Or am I weird?

Coffee, marmite, liquorice, Aldi liquorice and peppermint tea.
On the subject of crisps Aldi had some strange root vegetable crisps that had very odd taste, everyone I offered one to pulled a face. I managed to finish the multipack

Slightly unripe pears with crunchy peanut butter. Apparently this is weird.
As long as they're Conference pears you're ok! They're also great with almond butter if you're feeling fancy.

I may moan about him, but I secretly love getting the grey one scrubbed up. I also love watching him get down for a good roll after a competition though - the more he wallows the better!

I love strawberry and orange creams in a box of chocolates, prawn or chicken crisps.
I love the smell of just cut grass, and the sound of happy, munching horses.

None horsey-
Tattoos, I’ve got 7 and I have plans for more.
Milk. I love a glass of milk. So many of my friends are appalled at this!

Prawn cocktail crisps are simply the best, it is a shame they are hard to find in a big family size bag (to be eaten in one sitting by me :p)

Winter beard on above mentioned hairy

Riding in heavy rain - he seems to like it and we get some really good work done.

Salt liquorice - it's a Scandinavian thing and a somewhat acquired taste. I've yet to meet a Brit that likes it.

Pickles/gherkins - yummy!

Hacking on my own - so much more pleasant than having to go with someone else (Apologies, I'm aware I am antisocial!)
