Subbing, this thread is really interesting.

The most crazy thing I've seen is girls kicking the crap out of their horses sides. Like....this horse had to have bruises. I watched her for the rest of the day and somehow every horse she got on turned "crazy"...gee I wonder why....
Her horse got revenge by throwing some huge bronco bucks though.
And I was cheering for him from the sidelines, mwahahaha :)

Not sure how "crazy" this is, but it's more inappropriate/rude.

I was at my local 4H show, down in the warm up ring before my class. This adult man come in riding in his Harris show saddle, on a 2 year old. He arrived to the show at start time (9:00) and came only to show in the two open WP classes that didin't run until FIVE O'CLOCK!

Anyhow, he comes into warm up ring (full of 4H kids) SMOKING A CIG as he is riding!! Are you kidding me?!

First of all, the smoking is just wrong, and two, this is a show for 4H kids. We do not need adults coming in just to take the money in the open classes, and you definately do not need to bring your Harris saddle. Thanks. Ugh, it just irked me!

Well, about last year, in the middle of a Hunter/Jumper course, there was a rider doing their course, and the horse started bucking. She got bucked off, the ran out of the ring, it was running around for about 5 minutes since nobody could catch it. When it was finally got, one woman walked behind it, it kicked her in shoulder and she got knocked out unconcious. Apparently she broke her shoulder and had to be driven away in an ambulance.

Hehe. I've seen a couple trainers with draw reins on their curb bits loping around while yaking on their cell phones. I think it's pretty funny to watch.

I was at an exhibition and a team of Percherons were hitched to a dragging thing (looked like a pallet with a piece of plywood, and the driver was walking them up and down the aisles between the barns (there was rows of barns). When the horses broke lose and bolted down the agriculture areas into exhibits, than the mid way before any one could catch them. The team was easily one of the largest teams there, huge. I think a little girl was hurt (I don't no if it was directly related to the horses, or if it was something that happened when people were trying to get away from the horses).

Not the craziest, but it was cool....

I went to a APHA show last month, I was watching the steer stopping. This guy came out of the box on a younger horse and this colt busts in two bucking...this guy manages to throw his rope and catch his steer while this horse is hogging around.
He catches, dallies, stops and faces his steer....pretty handy in my book!

-At a Regional chicken show, when the judges were coming to one of the cages, the owner walked up, grabbed his bird out of the cage and licked it ALL OVER until it was soaking wet.
-A woman screaming at her daughter (She was only 7 or 8) at a 4H Sheep Show because she put the hose back the wrong way.
-Kids always seem to enjoy kicking the turkey cages. Sigh.
-I cant remember any more of them :/

I have seen lots of accidents at shows, nothing too serious fortunately, also parents yelling at their kids for not winning, & on you go with stuff like that, not really crazy, but not good behaviour in public either. Craziest thing? Hmmm, I will never forget this & still laugh about it, was 20 years ago, an open show, but a very large one, must've been over a 100 entries. There was a green or maiden horse western pleasure class, can't remember but there was about 25 or so in the ring. I was competing but not that class, so I actually got to watch it. There was this young lady with a fairly nice horse, but the way she was dressed!!!! She had on a bikini top kinda looking shirt, no hat, skintight leggings tucked into high heel boots and make up for a stage play! Everyone watching was in tears. She rode ok, even if she was dressed properly she probably would not have placed as there was some very good horses in that class, her horse wasn't bad but it wasn't collected, or cadenced as the others. I am wondering why the gate person didn't tell her that her attire wasn't legal and she wouldn't be placed. Oh well, made for a good laugh. I think someone told her afterwards, but all she did was go on about how good her horse was and how proud of him she was as it was his first time off the ranch, guess it was hers too, what's the name of that brothel in Nevada? The Bunny Ranch!

Okay, the chicken licker thing What was the reasoning for that?

Craziest thing to happen at a show...still makes me see red to this day. I did pretty well, okay real well, when I rode youth classes many moons ago. Made a lot of friends and a few "frenemies".

I was having a really good weekend, cleaned up every class I went in. Last pleasure class of the day, siblings of one of my frenemies stood on the rail and lit matches and flicked them at my mare's butt every time we passed them. I tolerated it for a few laps and then had enough, took my foot out of my stirrup and when I passed the next time, I booted them without even losing focus. Won the class despite their efforts. One of my friends and I had a 'discussion' with her behind the trailer when the sun went down.

A real good friend of mine at an open show caught her button up & bra on her horn taking off of the line in a pole bending class, ripping the shirt open and popped her bra. She continued anyway with the girls out for the world to see. She hasn't rode in a speed class since.

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.
