I don't know, sounds stupid to me. =P
I managed to throw my surcingle over one of the crossties attached to my filly and tightened it up. Luckily, she only thrashed around enough to break my glasses and give me a black eye before I released her.
When I was young and dumb, I would jump Ricci over large logs and whatnot on the trail. She was never hurt, thank god, but jumping my 16 year old [who's never jumped before, I might add] over such large and unyielding objects was completely stupid. I am so lucky my sweet Ricci is worth her weight in gold and cleared every jump without issue.
The next stupidest thing I've done was overlook letting a friend I was giving lessons to do up the bucking strap before the cinch. When I went to finish tightening her up, she decided to be cinch-y and turned around with intent to nip at me. I slapped her muzzle, got her moving in a circle around me. The saddle started to slip and with the bucking strap nice and snug, it got caught under her belly and she went into a bucking frenzy until she snapped the strap.
With age comes wisdom though, and I've been damn lucky so far. No one has been injured [but me, haha] from my stupid stunts, lol. Posted via Mobile Device
