Hotel del Coronado on Coronado Island in San Diego

I am a San Diego native and live only about 30 mins from Coronado and I have NEVER been to the Hotel Del!! Seriously, I know I could go and just walk around but I never have...I need to be a tourist in my own city, I think!

Oh wow you HAVE to check it out and tell me what you think. It's my favorite place. I've been all over the US and keep coming back there.

What would be your dream horse?
Friesian! They're very sweet, an easy seat, and always black- I am a sucker for black horses. Black horses and black cats always follow me around like happy little puppies for some reason. Never fails. I'll be volunteering at the animal shelter and every black cat there will be climbing on me. Now that I've made myself sound like a total freak, on to the next question...
Do you ride western or english?
Western... English saddle freaks me out; I feel like I'm going to fall off.

Picking a horse to match your hair is very important... :-P So you jump? I jump primarily "accidentally" (lots of birds and snakes out here... Being suddenly galloping then airborne is not uncommon). lol

I definitely pefer western also, but grew up riding both.
Here's a question: how many times have you eaten dirt because of your horse? You had mentioned in your in-laws post that you live in the desert. Are you in So. Cal?

I actually have never eaten dirt because of my horse. Came VERY close several times, but when things go wrong I tend to cling like a spider monkey because I'm terrified of falling.
I'm in Arizona... AKA dirt pit. Hoping to move to Oklahoma before year-end.
Your turn to answer the dream horse question! :)
