BUFFFF... old timesss lol, it was 2004 I was like 15, I has been riding english well show jumping for not so long, my dady had bought me a huge TB/ Hanoverian mix that was a pain in... (inser inagination here lol) he was very spooky, and I certainly hated him, he always ruined all the competitions an di was a bigginer so I could handle him. But I still loved show jumping.
That morning we had an accident the trailer qith the horse inside went loose from the truck and ensed up in a bridge, I took out the horse in the middle of free way with police and tv lol a mess, and a friend trailer stoped by and took my horse, somehow I arrived to the competition, teh vet said the horse was perfectly fine and he could show with no prob.
So I went into the paddock and he did ok... then we went into the show jumping course and we came out 2ndddd!!!! Never ever again that horse jumped with noone else lol, he was sold to be a trailk horse lol, cos 1 yr latter he almost broke my neck lol. So everybody still calls that ribbon the good luck accident ribbon, what makes it soi special. Well...
It was my 1st big even ribbon, the only ribbon in the horse carrer and my dadys face when we did the winners lap he was standing so proud, it still makes me get gosebumps.
