I look back and laugh now, at the time I didn't want to set foot back in that barn. I did and nobody mentioned a thing but some of the guys there gave me some odd looks every once in a while.

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.

That made me cry I was laughing so hard =) I feel so bad for you.

Haven't had many but I do have one about my sister. One summer at camp the teacher put my sister on a high spirited stallion with a bareback pad. Sewers in the pasture and were sup posted warm up by walking, trotting, etc. Around the tree but the stallion decided that he'd take all of his energy out an a beginner rider(my sis)so while he was galloping off the pad slipped so there was my sis side ways on a galloping horse with five counslers chasing the horse. Eventually when the horse turned one of the counselors was waiting there and my sister was told to let go that she would catch her but when my sis did she landed flat on her butt witch caused someone else's horse th rear up!

I thought I was the only one with the "bra" accident. I had a horse that was cinchy, and I got on without lunging. He started crow hopping and then bucking. I slid down the saddle, and my shirt and bra came off, and the horse took off - with my shirt and bra still attached to the horn! Of course the only people in the arena were my trainer and his assistant - both men. Ugh...

LadyNeigh, that almost made me switch! I pretty much always tuck my shirts in now. To make it worse, my trainer ran after my horse, got my "stuff," and promised me he wouldn't tell anyone. Well, the next day I was still in a lot of pain, but I swore I was getting back on, after lunging of course, and I rode for a while, but then as people started coming out into the arena, it was obvious he told everyone. Good thing we were all good friends!

I think too that I was so mortified that I did not realize that I was really hurt. About three days later I was moving a table with my boyfriend, and I couldn't breathe. Turns out I had broken three ribs too! Doctor asked me how I did it, and I got to relive it again - I was just thrilled!

Well I was riding bareback and bridle-less and my mom and sister were sitting watching me. I swing up onto the short gelding and my jump was to short and I grabbed a chunk of hair on his side and dangled there for half the arena while he was trotting. I almost bounced right off with 1 leg halfway over his back and the other leg trying to use the ground to push my self up. I twisted my ankle and was somehow able to get up on his back. I was laughing so hard I fell off the other side on my face!

When I was taking out a trail at my barn. My horse isn't western, but I figured I'd ride her western that day. So la di da di da, we're out on the trail, almost to the woods, when the little boy behind me says; "hey there's something dragging under your horse!"
so I leaned to the left a little and I see the girth. Well, then I saw the ground. Haha! I was using my instructor reallllyyy old saddle and the leather ties just snapped. So my weight shifting made the whole thing fall off. My horse was kinda standing there looking at me like I'm crazy. Luckily I did lots of "emergency dismounts" with her, so she didn't spook!
I then proceeded to walk up the hill to a giant mound of dirt, remounted and took the trail our bareback.
ON the way back, I stopped, picked up the saddle and carried it home.

We had gone camping at the ocean and were riding down the driveway to the property owner's house to pay. Riding bareback, as I usually did at that time. Lots of people were camped along the driveway and my horse was getting really nervous.... The orange 5 gallon bucket sitting next to the driveway was the final straw and she spooked and tried to bolt. I turned her (of course) and got her stopped, but now we're facing a travel trailer with umbrellas and awnings flapping in the wind, and about 15 people sitting there laughing and visiting. My mare started backing up, she couldn't see the (at least) 6 foot deep ditch behind us because it was covered in sticker bushes, but I knew it was there. I'm desperately trying to urge her forward away from it, but to no avail. She started to slide down into it and when she realized she was going to fall, she turned and jumped straight down in. We landed at the bottom ok, except since I wasn't prepared for the jump, my upper body came down on her withers when we landed, fracturing two ribs. Took a moment to compose myself, grabbed a fistful of mane, wrapped my legs around her and pointed her back at the driveway (which I couldn't see anymore) and asked her to jump straight back up, which she did. We made it in one MASSIVE jump and as soon as all four hooves were back on the gravel I jumped off and hid behind her because everyone had come running and I was so humiliated, in pain, and couldn't breathe. Everyone was really freaked out, they said one moment we were there and the next, we were just gone. They couldn't see us at all..... I'm not quite sure why I was so embarrassed, but it was totally humiliating!
