I am still embarrassed by this...
I rode western for years...and then switched to english. I had been taking lessons here and there for a few months so my trainer decided to enter me in a schooling show. I only did walk/trot classes because the last time I had cantered the horse bucked and on the 7th buck I went over and ended up fracturing my hand, so I had no confidence, and I was the only teenager in my class, the rest were anywhere from 5-7 yrs old. Well I got so nervous in the show ring I forgot everything...I wasn't new to showing, I had shown WP for years winning buckles, halters, and even getting circuit champion, and I ended up getting beat by little girls on fat ponys,a 16 yr old on a 16.3 tb got her butt handed to her by 5-7 yr olds on ponies...that was embarrassing.

Hahahaha ok ok - but guys bear in mind this is NO indication of my riding ability! He was a hard horse to ride AND I was bareback AND it was more than a year ago. I need to get some more recent videos.


This was October 2010 :/ my confidence took a lot of ups and downs with this horse, he was very very green when I got him and so was I so we ended up with everything from bucking to bolting and he even reared on me a few times. We rode bareback, A LOT, because he was a hard horse to fit a saddle to.

I miss him. A lot. I wish I'd got my job earlier and then I'd have been able to keep him in happy retirement rather than... what ended up happening...

Too many to list them all...but, some of my personal fave's would be ....

1) While riding bare back down a hill Romeo decides that he wants grass right then and there. He proceeds to put his head down and graze while I continue right over his head and onto my butt.

2) In the winter I decide I am going to ride Casper bare back. I jump up on him and right off the other side.

3) The worst would be when I was riding Romeo in a bottom pasture and a nice sudden summer rain came up. I slowly start walking Romeo towards the barn. While going around a corner Romeo slipped. This threw my up on his neck. He popped his head up to catch himself and cracked me right in the jaw. After making sure he was all set at the barn I go inside to call the dentist. Come to find out, Romeo cracked my tooth all the way down the middle and the dentist could not save it. Now every time I am at a dentist office, orthodontist, ect they are amazed by it. Lucky for me it was a back molar and not a front one. Lol.

Green Broke
I was managing a small TB farm and training the younsters. The owner decided to offer a few of the horses through a syndicate. I brought the first one out to work, in front of an audience of a few dozen out-of-state potential investors, and she sneezed. I was so tense that I fell off over her shoulder.

You can imagine the laughing. A few of the people sent me "Sneezy" (from Snow White) gifts. A sweatshirt, figurine, and a poster.

My most recent incidents were last year when I was first breaking my mare. One day we were just riding along through a field. Well, she has an....issue with white flowers. She's convinced they are out to destroy her. So she was having a 'stand off' with such a flower, and as I finally convinced her to keep going past it she farted. She spooked at her own fart and took off at warp-speed across the field.

Then one day we were riding along and came across a little creek -one she could easily step across or through- well, she decided that she'd much rather show me her grand prix jumper impersonation. Launched herself straight up in the air and over it as high as possible, caught my bra on the horn.

Before that was possibly the worst embarrassing incident, I'd just gotten an old freebie appaloosa mare, and my friend who delivered her said "Hey, why don't you come with me to the arena to work cows and try her out?" Yes, I was such a genius and agreed to take a horse I'd never ridden before to a busy arena to work cattle.

The other thing was, I'd never worked cattle before. Nobody bothered to explain to me how the team-sorting thing was supposed to work either. I'm not sure if that's really what it was called, but you had a team of 3, two people waited behind the line to block wrong numbered cows and the third person went into the herd, cut out the right cow and drove it to the line, then the next and so on.

Well, while we were waiting along the side of the arena for our turn, April (the mare) goes about grabbing the person next to me by the leg and dragging them off their horse. I got her away from the others and then, when our turn came, of course I was picked to be the person to go down to the herd and cut the cows.

My fat little old mare had other plans. She stopped, wouldn't move. Right in front of the herd. After almost running out of time she finally super slowly moves through the herd, we get the cow, and at this point she finally decides to be 'cowy'. As the cow tried to turn back to the herd she whipped around so fast I flew half on her. She calmly walked back to the front of the arena with me hanging off her side with my arms around my neck hanging for dear life.

After we were done working cows I decided to get on her bareback, only she was so round that as I jumped up I slid right over her other side and landed on the ground right in front of everyone. (I have yet to live any of those down xD)

This wasn't me but: I was riding in a lesson with my friend, and we were jumping. She was riding a horse that is known to be really slow, and he was as usual. We were warming up over small crossrails, and doing fine, until her horse, stopped, with one foot over the jump, and pooped. My trainer was cracking up, and I almost fell off my horse laughing. They then proceeded to walk over the jump like nothing happened.

Also, my mare LOVES to eat, and has tried to eat about everything, including a barrel, mounting blocks, jumps, etc. She's a bit crazy, but I love her anyway.

There are lots!
My favorite was when I was riding with some new people, we were down by a creek that was surrounded by lots of trees and right as I was talking a bird pooped and it landed right on my upper lip and I ended up throwing up over the side of my horse... Everyone was laughing but I was bright red.

Another time I was Explaining a lesson to a group of some my younger students Well as I had just went over checking your cinch before mounting I went over and jumped on Grady... But of course I forgot to check it, the saddle slipped and I landed in the dirt on my butt. Everyone was busting up with laughter I too laughed but was very embarrested.

New one!!

I got offered a lift home from a lessons, as it was snowing, and I knew my horse hadn't been in the trailer for 3yrs+ so I said I don't think he'll go in easily. So the people giving me a lift loaded their horse...with great difficulty- took half an hour. When they did I loaded my horse in. He went straight in without batting an eyelid

Their horse hadn't been in the trailer for 1hr
