Lol I didn't get too badly injured with this one, I was going to work this colt for my boss's mum, I go to mount up, the saddle slips sideways, he bucks, my bra got hooked in the horn of the saddle, thus tearing a hole through my shirt and sweater and leaving me without clothing for my upper half...also landing on the block and bruising my hips. Very embarrassing lol

At my last show, my horse was being super stubborn and giving me a lot of attitude. We were jogging along in the western pleasure class, when he pops up a huge unexpected buck right in front of the judge. I wasn't expecting it and my tailbone was sore for days after that.

Another embarrassing one is when I was at a local gymkhana. I'd warmed up with my friend, and she went to ride back to her trailer while I moved my horse over to wait for my go. My helmet at the time was a big bulky Troxel that I hated so I took it off and hung it off my horn, as well as dropped my stirrups. My horse spins and tries to go off with my friends horse. I get him calm and standing still and he shoots straight up into the sky and I just slide right off his side. He then decided to go walk over to my friend and leave me lying there totally embarrassed that like 100 people just saw me fall off from the lamest attempt at a buck ever.

Getting off my horse at the mounting block so that a girl I was riding with could hop on and see what she's like to ride... and the mounting block fell out from underneath me.


Note to self, either dismount and then lead pony to mounting block, or make totally sure mounting block is on level ground when you go to step down onto it.

Also got another good 'getting off' one.

I was sharing my horse with a friend, and I wasn't used to the saddle and how high its cantle was. So as I was getting off to let my friend ride, I got my foot caught on the cantle and fell. I wasn't hurt but I could have been if the horse had moved a muscle because I ended up underneath her! [no longer have that horse as she had to retire... she'll be 22 now if her arthritis hasn't gotten the better of her, we have sadly lost contact with the lady who took her on as a weekend trail horse]

I had an incident with the cantle too. Was mounting from a block to the 16.3hh lesson horse I ride, on about my third lesson. Didnt swing my right leg high enough over the saddle and somehow caught the material at the crotch of my breeches on the cantle and ended up stuck! I was laughing so hard and so was my instructor, that it took me ages to right myself.

Another one is I dismounted out of my English saddle, and while sliding down, the iron twisted... Hopefully you can imagine from there.. Guys ARE NOT the only ones with pain!

As a guy, I can tell you that riding really doesn't hurt the male anatomy as much as you would think. Unless you're sitting on the saddle in a really odd way. Even when posting, because the male anatomy isn't on the butt.

I think OP needs to get over his "embarrassing" experience he had a week ago and move on with his riding ;)

After a long bareback trail ride, after dismounting, I discovered my white horse & I must have gotten attacked by a mountain lion without us knowing! My mixed gender friends had a different idea though & would not stop laughing.

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.
