Calling All People Who Have Had An Embarrassing Moment....

Hey ya'll,

I need to do a "How Embarrassing" column in my magazine, so to all those people who have had an embarrassing moment, PLEASE post below, it doesn't have to do with horses, but I would prefer it, but if not that's fine. Please, I need all the help I can get.

when i first started showing, i got called in to do a workout. as i was doing one of the circles shad decided he wanted to go back to the line up with the other horses. i remember thinking ''mell..outside leg, MORE OUTSIDE LEG!!!!'' it didn't work and as a result i almost ran over the judge!!!

First off, when my saddle slid under my horse when I was nine. It was our first 4-H meeting. I cried. :roll: you try hanging on upside down while your stuck and your horse is running!

I was riding my gelding 5 years ago when he was a young, and disobedient little thing. He was bareback, and in a hackamore. I started cantering down the airstrip near our house, and when I decided to stop, he didn't agree. I had no leverage from a saddle, and not bit, so despite my tries, I was along for the ride. He was running full out pretty soon, rounded along the airstrip road back the other way and started through a field.

At the end of the field, was a patch of woods, through which was the short, paved road back to the house. He was headed that way, and I didn't want to get taken off in the trees, so I decided to jump for it. I finally got the guts to make the jump, and tumbled over myself a few times, landing in the only rocky patch in a grass field.

My wind was knocked out of me, and I was on the ground on all fours trying to breath when my husband and his 12 year old sister caught up to me on the six wheeler (we had been out riding together until my little adventure). My mouth had also been packed with dirt from the fall, and my face was covered in dirt. My little sister in law told me that I looked like a hillbilly. I would have laughed if I could have breathed.

I came out of it with a road rash on my arm and sore ribs. Surprisingly that was my worst horse incident so far (fingers crossed it stays that way).

Needless to say, I do not ride my youngsters with the bareback/hack-amore combo out on the trail anymore - at least until I know their character, behavior patterns and training really well first. For example, my stallion, being SO different than my lovely gelding, would never do that - he is more of an eating opportunist. :)

i have been riding for 7 years and i was riding a horse to see if i would lease, i was NOT thinking at all and was completely zoning out and i tried to mount on the right side. when the owner said "wrong side". that was awful.
kinda funny, but a tad imbarrassing. i was in a show and then tightened the girth, on one side, like i always do. and when i was going over the last jump in the course the saddle started to slip and i went with it. i landed well (suprisingly) on my feet and not too ungracefully but the judges didn't really know what to think.
