multiples of 5

I thought this was a weird maths question for a start!

5: Riding related pet peeve? 

- I think my biggest pet peeve is people who don’t tie their hair back when riding and it falls in front of the helmet strap in their face. looks so messy!

- Also don’t like coloured stirrups.

- Not booting/bandaging horse for travel. And/or daily riding really - but I know i’m a little OCD about boots.
