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 horse does this EVERY TIME we get into water above her knees, everyone riding with us thinks its really funny....

Was riding bareback around our front yard on my gelding, who is a nice wide bodied QH, turning, going up and down our small hill in the yard, and when we were done I stopped to let him munch on the grass. Down went his head and before I could loose the reins he snatched them out of my hand, I lost my balance, slid down his neck and landed face first in front of him. When I turned over, face very red, he was looking at me like "What did you just do that for?"
