Well mine were not so embarrassing since no one was there to see, but the first time I ever fell was because of chickens crossing* a mother hen and her 12 chicks*...the path while we were at a full gallop. All I remember was screaming to Hidalgo. " THE CHICKENS!" and he ended up tap dancing and jumping. It was utter panic for all of us.. I couldn't keep up. None of us were hurt...physically anyway haha.

I had a horse that I swear was part lab..he adored water. We were riding an outdoor trail class, utilizing components from a cross country jumping course..one of which was a water element. The task was simple...walk in, walk out, except, my darling boy stopped dead in the middle and started pawing like mad splashing water everywhere. It took me forever to get him out of the thing. People watching that particular element had tears rolling down their faces they were laughing so hard.

When I finally got him out, he finished the rest of the elements beautifully; we still placed second as the judge indicated on the write-up that the horse obviously wasn't afraid of the water but that he had to ping me for not being able to get him to obey the command to move forward :)

^^^ my mom has a horse that is even worse in the water! If you let her paw, you are in trouble. She will and has on several occasions laid down in the water (pawing is her precursor to this action)! Once she even rolled when my mom had rode her bareback into a pond, my mom just stood there in waist deep in water still holding the reins to her submerged horse. So whenever we come to water, we have to force the horse to keep moving! LOL

When I was younger, my sister and I were riding bareback down by a local river when we happened by a group of camping shirtless cute guys. We were cantering, and in my mind some kind of dramatic music was playing as we showed off our great skillz and ran slow motion through the deep white sand- the whole group was watching. It was awesome until both of the horses spooked and we fell off (in my heart I knew it was intentional... Rotten horses). Then they all laughed -a lot-
It was pretty embarrassing.

Ok, I just need to vent right now. I just had the worst horse show of my life. It started out great, the I fell off in the warm up ring. My horse went right, and I went left. Then she bolted out of the show ring, twice! Getting us disqualified both times, and bout times while riding AGAINST MY TRAINER! Then she went bucking out of the warm up ring, out of control. I was going to scratch my last flat class, but then another trainer at my barn tricked me into thinking I was going in for a victory lap, since I had had one really good round. I did it, placed sixth of six, but hey, at least everyone saw that I was tough enough to come back from everything. Am I ever going to be sore tomorrow though! Lol.

My most embarassing moment on horseback came when I went to a new place to take lessons.. I had thrown on my riding jeans which were starting to get thin in a certain area.. so I decided after this ride they were done... get there and I tack up the horse mount... and rippppp.. I rip the entire crotch out of my pants.. I didnt say anything and when the ride was over.. I dismounted and the rip got so big that my underwear was hanging out.. plus Im a guy and the underwear I was wearing were boxers with red hearts all over them that my wife gave me.. so everyone saw my boxers.. no one said anything but I know they were all laughing behine my back.. never went back there for lessons

Well done indeed, and a nice hot bath is in order :)

I most definitely agree! It was mostly because my trainer was mad last night, and wound up riding the horse WAY too hard, then making me ride her hard too. She was so good for our first couple classes. :) I am by no means mad at the horse, it really wasn't her fault. She was just really tired and sore. We just did a walk /trot class in the morning, took a break, then went back and did crossrails. She was good for the walk /trot classes. :)
