Ah, where to start. Probably the worst was when I spent the weekend at my cousins riding their percherons. I was bored with the slow plod down the trail, riding the lead horse, so I started flipping around on the mare I was on, joking that I could do yoga on her, she was so wide. The next day I was out at the horses riding my arab pretzl, who I joke is like riding a noodle(in flexibility and width). I was on bareback and went riding out of the barn, just as my BO was showing a prospective boarder the facilities. I went to ask the BO a question, and truned to hear her answer, only to find that my arab is NOT as wide as a percheron. I fell off my broke saddle horse, at a walk. That's talent.
Another one is a friend of mine(who wouldn't mind me sharing). We were getting our horses out of a 70 acre pasture. Her horse was a arabx that was 'cowboyed' off of, and was very sensitive to having his sides touched, and extremely sensitive bare back. We hopped on our horses to ride back, and as she slid from the fence onto his back he stepped forward. The unexpected weight of her sitting on his butt caused him to leap forward, summersaulting her off him, onto a newly laid pile of steaming horse poop. The stains never came out of her pants, and she spent the rest of the day looking(and smelling) like she pooped herself.
