Tell us about your horse!

Nikki Davies EquestrianNikki Davis Equestrian

I have an 18hh Dutch Warmbloods called sisco who is 8yo, now ....he is pretty impressive!! And I now have the a  coloured  pony Troika I'm showing who is 11yo and has the most amazing paces. 

Tell us a horse joke!

What did the horse say when he fell down? I've fallen and I can't giddyup!
What do you do when you aren’t with your horse?
I spend my spare time with my two weimaraners and going on walks. 
What do you love about the horsey community?

Horse community is totally awesome when something happens, everyone rallies around to help you out and I love that, my yard is amazing. 

What do you dislike about the horsey community?

The showing world can be cruel sometimes. It's not as easy as a clear show jumping and time faults cross country. It's one person opinion and sometimes people get unhappy about that. 

Do your family share your passion of horses?

My family are totally non horsey, they love to hear about my day or when I've been to a show but my mum is actually terrified of them. One day I took a new horse home that I bought ( didn't tell my mother) and she thought it was the one I already had! Winner. 😊 

Tell us your funniest horse related story!

I went on a fun ride with my friend on my two horses, now... she was nervous and her horses was playing up something terrible, my horses was like a dobbin so we swapped!!
You wouldn't believe that when we swapped horses the one she was on calmed down and then my horse started to play up! Hot bottom or just feeding off of her pure nervousness, I will never know but once the ride was finished we laughed so much about it.

How many times have you fallen off?

Too many!!! Broken collar bone, broken knee, broken fibula and tib, fractured ribs! That's enough!!! 

What horsey product can’t you live without?

Brighter than white and supreme sparkle- every girl needs a bit of sparkle in her life. 😉 

Tell us an interesting fact about yourself!

I have my hair cut once a year, I hate going to the hairdressers and would rather spend the money on the horses than me.
