The Plaid Horse Questionnaire With: Alex Anseth

Status: Head Trainer, Augusta Pines Farm • Hometown: Magnolia, TX

As a horsewoman, I am most proud of my determination. 

As a horsewoman, I would most like to improve on my patience. 

I’d be lost without boot polish in my tack trunk and Band-Aids in my ring bag. 

My favorite horse book is Black Beauty. 

My favorite non-horse book is A Man Called Ove. 

I’m a sucker for a good canter. 

On Mondays, you’ll find me walking my dogs. 

I sometimes wish I had the time to learn other languages. 

I’m afraid of the deep deep sea. 

Something I say ten times a day is “in review.”

One of my greatest show ring victories was the regional derby championship win in 2021 with MTM Hay Day. 

My absolute favorite show is Capital Challenge because the time of year and the atmosphere and the first Indoors show is pretty exciting. 

One of the best horse names I’ve ever heard is Flying Pancake. 

My motto is: Get up early

My best piece of advice for young riders is: persevere
