Crazy things you want to do at a show!

Ok, if it isn't against the rules, I want to go ride an event dressage test BAREBACK! Haha so what crazy things do you want to do?

I want to go to a hunter show on a horse and just look like total idiots.
(Like wearing socks over my boots, wearing like neon riding pants, a tiedyed shirt under a coat that looks nothing like a show coat, etc.) And then go into the class and kick everyone's butts... And be like, so... you paid how much for your show clothes/horse?

I would love to see some bareback classes in shows because there is no way to fake your horsemanship then. I have never really shown but a long time ago I had a horse that would walk over the top of anything you pointed him at; fences, pickups, cattle, other horses, people, etc. He had excellent manners and was a wonderful kid and roping horse but he had no fear of anything. He was just a different kind of horse. I wanted to enter him in the junior hunting one time just to see the look on the judges face when he loped around the arena crashing through every fence and not even trying to jump. LOL

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Dude, we should mix your idea with my idea! Now THAT would be a sight worth seeing! And that would be funny to see what the judge thought of a horse going THROUGH insted of over!

We should! Go to a show bareback looking like idiots! Like as you're on the rail, walk past the judge, stop, and look at her and be like "Sorry. I forgot my tack and clothes... Hope you don't mind"

Are you implying that you'd like to go show naked?

I am sure that would have quite a crowd to watch!

You know how to make a miniature horse even smaller? Leave them in the dryer a little longer!

I've always wanted to do stadium show jumping with Athena w/o a saddle or bridle.

Unfortunately, even though I think I could handle the need for immense leg power to stay on, Athena is er... um... really short.

My wife and I have friends that do Cowboy Mounted Shooting. Pat the husband is in the CMS hall of fame, his wife Debbie is nationally ranked and rides and shoots BAREBACK.. It is truly amazing to watch. Riding full goose bozo, drawing 45 colt pistols, shooting at balloons, while darting in and out of pylons, BAREBACK.. She recently won the national Peruvian Paso trail compatition Bareback also.. One day while trailriding with them we watched Debbie pick up Maureens hat which the wind blew off, from horseback bareback... amazing. Debbie, is Maureen and My age about 50ish.
