This didn't happen to me, but everyone was embarrassed for the girl. It was a local barrel race, there is NO dress code. A big busty girl was running barrels in a tube top...you can already see where this is going. The horse jumped hard after the last barrel and the tube top rolled down, she could get her horse or her top under control until after she got him stopped at the end of the arena. Of course all the guys were yelling for a re-ride!!!

While trail riding, we were going down a rough declining path and there was some brush in the way. I decided to let the horse, Banjo, pick his own way since I figured he would know best. Apparently he didn't. He tried to go right through it and when he tripped a bit, I lost my own balance and fell off the left side of him. I did manage to land on my feet. My friend who was leading us looked at me and said, "Did you just fall?" When I said yeah, he said, "Well, I figured that was either the ugliest dismount or the most graceful fall I'd ever seen." lol

On the same horse, different day. Some friends and I were getting ready to go galloping up a trail. We were waiting patiently for some of our calmer friends to get to the top. I was sitting with my feet out of the stirrups since I would sometimes ride without them. Something I should mention is that I was so in-tune with this horse and the slightest pressure or lack thereof got him to do what I wanted. When I saw our other friends were at the top of the hill I turned to ask if everyone was ready. When I turned, I apparently pushed my hand forward slightly because Banjo shot off like a rocket. Being completely unprepared, I flipped backwards over his left hindquarters. Being the good horse he was, he stopped as soon as he felt me fall because I didn't have the thinking capacity to let go of the reins. I opened my eyes to see his front hooves and scrambled to my feet quickly. Everyone was asking if I was okay, but I couldn't help but laugh. I loved that horse.

I have had many of these, or well they would be embarrassing for most people but I am not like most people so I do not get embarrassed as easily, but I have to say one of my tops was one morning before a horse show when all my non horses family and some close family friends decided they would come over and follow us to the show to watch/support me.

Anyways, my friend and I led them all over to the horses so they could meet them all before we loaded up to leave, while we were over there my friend decided we would go ahead and grab ours and ride them bare back over to the trailer....not something out of the ordinary for us to do.
So I grabbed my mount and walker her over to the mini hitching post so I could get on (i have yet to learn the skill of mounting a 16 hand horse from flat ground...I am a little too fluffy for that) anyways my friend was already on her horse and I was trying to hurry/show off so I stood on the post went to plop on belly first when I over plopped and ended up landing on the ground on the other side of my horse, face first I may add.
I jumped up, brushed myself off, and acted as if nothing happened but I was red from head to toe and made sure she was standing directly beside the post so I could just throw my leg over her the 2nd time.....I can laugh about it now....it was years ago....I think that was the first and last time I ever got so embarrassed I had to actually swallow my pride and blink away a tear.

I have too many to retell all of them, but here's a good one...

I was at a show, having a really good day. Dallas was being incredible. I get to my last over fences class and I am 100% sure I know my course. So I start riding to the first fence, Dallas flies over it, we're doing awesome. The rest of the course is super smooth and one of my best jumping classes ever. I finish and people clap, yay. Then the judge comes up to me and says, "Best ride all day, but you did the course backwards." I just starting laughing, I started with the last jump and ended with the first. I was told by several people that my horse was the best jumper there, too bad I didn't remember my course. It was super embarrassing, and my trainer was ready to strangle me. XD My friends still don't let me forget that class.

<3 Dallas, Dakota, and Shaymus <3

I think I have everybody beat, I was going into a lesson and I came straight from work so was changing in to my breeches and stuff and realized that the underwear I was wearing left horrible panty lines so .. me being smart I took them off. Halfway through the lesson I took a nasty fall and went headfirst into the rail. The paramedics were called and I discovered the hard way that if you can't feel your toes the paramedics WILL cut your pants and boots off.. They generally leave your underwear on ..if you are wearing some.
