As someone who grew up around ponies and never had an iota of fear we, the children who rode at the riding school got up to all sorts of very ridiculous things and this was on very well trained ponies.
It is really not worth it, I busted my arm more than once trying things I had seen in a film or a circus.
I did a TV series as a stunt rider for a children's programme this did not involve anything like falling off just galloping around mostly down steep hills.

If it was idiotic then possibly the answer would be "no!"

As I have repeatedly said I received a lot of injuries and can honestly say that most of them came when I was attempting something I shouldn't have been doing.
The first time I broke my arm was when taking the ponies out to the fields bareback. I was riding one and leading another and we cantered along the field from the stables to the road and I cup decided to stand up on the ponies backs. I did it stayed there fine, I always had a good sense of balance, but when they stopped at the gate, the ponies went in different directions! I went straight. It was obvious I had busted both bones so we rode back to the stables and I then walked down to the Cottage Hospital and was tKen to the main ER by ambulance. I was about 10 years old.

I feel like a thread like this could be fun if the dares were restricted to things that are not reckless.

For example: I dare you to try to braid your horse's mane like this (no matter how short the mane is)!

Or, I dare you to try a counter canter for half a lap of your arena or riding space.

Or, I dare you to attempt to lead your horse without a halter (in a safe enclosed area).

Etc. etc.

It may also be fun to have everyone give a truth or dare option, so if someone is not ready to try the dare they can share a horse-related truth instead.

Maybe when the weather gets a little better, I will start a thread like this.

I think that is a good idea.

My idea of dares would make most people's toes curl!

On second thought, perhaps I will start that thread today and whatever any snow-bound people can't participate in, they can just choose truths or wait until a later date to participate. :)

^I'd be totally down to join that thread.

As far as this one... "Horse dares" aren't something that I have ever heard of. Is this... a thing? XD

Judging by all the people standing on their horses or crawling between their horse's legs in photographs, I think it might be. Either that or these people just have a death wish! I wouldn't think of doing dares that are that dangerous or stupid, though I know when I was a kid we used to dare each other to do certain things on horseback, like jump a creek, enter a class at a show that we'd never done before, or play games like follow the leader. Follow the leader could become quite a challenge when the most advanced rider took the lead!

Anyone who's interested in a good game of horse-related truth or dare, proceed to the games section. I have started a thread there!

I'll admit. I've done them crazy things before....but never alone, always had somebody spotting and tried to mitigate as much risk as possible lol.

Crazy...maybe. Suicidal....nope
