When I was about to enter the arena for my first show,(dressage) I think my nerves got the better of me and I peed my pants! It was not enough to make more than a pea sized spot,(I did not know how small the spot was untill after dismounting) but the woman I look up to most was holding my horse as I dismounted! I was so sure she was going to see! (she did not, although I think I am going to tell her what happened that day) I was so embarrassed, to this day(it was April of 2011) I have only told a few of my closest friends what happened.
I finally told the woman(we`ll call her XX) what happened that day. She took it really well, and even told me some of her embarrassing show moments(she used to be a very good show jumper/hunter jumper). I was really worried at first because XX is very close friends with my instructor, and I really don`t want her to find out yet, but XX said that we can keep it between us. I am so glad that I finally got up the courage to tell her.
