So, I've decided to do a periodic blog post called "Friday Favorites" that presents a prominent eventer with a brief questionnaire and they provide their answers in less than 5 minutes. Kind of like a variation on the good old Proust questionnaire. These questions do not have anything really to do with eventing, so in reading their answers, we get to see a tiny peek into a professional eventer's personality in a more fun, impromptu way than would be in a more formal interview.

I will now get to our inaugural Friday Favorites that profiles Megan Moore. Megan is a top-level eventer who teaches and trains out of Team CEO Eventing in Georgetown, KY. She frequently competes at River Glen here in Knoxville and she is always a friendly face who has nice horses, nice students, her students have nice get the picture. It comes as no surprise to me, then, that she won the Sportsmanship Award at last year's Fair Hill CCI**! Since this weekend is River Glen weekend, I emailed Megan to see if she would like to be my first-ever "Friday Favorite" for today, and with typical politeness and good cheer she heartily agreed!

So, without further delay, here is this week's Friday Favorites:

1. Favorite name for a horse:  Dizzy
2. Favorite drink:  coffee, coffee, coffee
3. Favorite vacation destination:  I haven't taken a vacation in 6 years!  No idea! :)
4. Favorite book:  All I Really Need to Know I Learned in Kindergarten (A credo on how to have a positive outlook on life; it's not about kindergarten, I promise!)
5. Favorite reality t.v. show:  Wipeout
6. Favorite pair of shoes:   Waldies
7. Favorite high school subject:  Calculus
8. Favorite pizza topping:  pepperoni
9. Favorite city that you've never lived in:  St. Louis
10. Favorite motto:  "Half the world is fighting over a bowl of rice today mate..."   (Scotty Keach, to Boyd Martin, via Boyd Martin's blog, via Eventing Nation)
