Mine was just bad luck. It was the last class of the day, a HUGE wind came out of nowhere, blowing grass clipping into the air, and everything was flying around. Then the food tent broke free and came right at the ponies waiting to show, the tarp flew right over our heads. Trash cans were rolling into the ponies, and trash, papers, fly sheets, coats, everything was everywhere. It was ridiculous! Even dead broke school ponies were flipping out, and a bunch of kids got thrown and loose ponies were galloping about. It was crazy!
And then there's Holiday. He lifted his head after a nearby pony practically ran him down. He looked around, shook his head, and went back to sleep. We went on to win the class after the wind died down. Go holiday
