You going to share vid in the saloon when you participate? That sounds like an entertaining evening. I busted a fave VS bra doing the same thing but it was at home and I had a compression tank over it. Thank goodness, my citified transplant neighbors already think I'm nuts.

Ha ha...yea right.....un/fortunately I was not blessed with "teats" would watch the video and think it was a twelve year old boy! Bah ha ha!

My husband sys he would buy me some but I would rather have Lasik so my glasses don't slide down my nose and I could see farther than my horses ears! Not sure I would know how to contain the things! In the words of my grandmother in law...."wasn't sure if they are fightin' to get in or fighten' to get out!" Lol!

That's epic about the topless pole bending...I wouldn't be comfortable just due to the size of my chest. I have to wear at least two bras when riding anyway.

As far as the craziest thing I've seen goes.

Funny Thing: I always love watching the schooling rounds at cross country events since most of the horses haven't seen the jumps they are jumping. My fav thing to watch is any horse that thinks it needs to bank a wide spread fence. I've seen horses jump on top of a table spread fence that was no wider than 2 foot 3 inches and I looked at the horse in confusion as to how that was possible.

Cruel Thing: I've seen way too many people show horses that were unfit to show. Either too underweight, lame, or clearly drugged for one reason or another.

Coolest Thing: I've seen is someone did a short cross country schooling round bareback and in a halter. Not sure how they convinced the show-master to let them do that, but it all ended well so no harm no foul right?

Sad Thing: I was present when Call Again Cavalier fell at an Indoor Eventing Competition.

Rude Thing: I have been victim to this; when you show up at a new show venue and everyone who has shown there for enough time to be popular looks at you like your worthless and unworthy of being there. Fortunately, I don't really care what they think since I show for pleasure and to gain experience. Plus I somehow manage to place higher than some of them, proving that you can't judge a book by its cover. Goes the same way for if you can't afford the best gear. (Has anyone seen the movie Moondance Alexander?)

Annoying Thing: WARM UP RINGS!!! Rider's not calling jumps, or tracking slowly on the outside, not passing left to left, and rider's who allow their horses to follow too closely to yours or that cut you off.

Oh I've also seen a mini horse (I actually think it was the smallest horse breed, starts with a F but I can't remember) get loose in a warm up ring at the Western States Horse Expo and there were several people trying to corral this tiny pony, but she kept slipping past them all. She finally stopped next to a giant shire that was in the arena.

The button up shirt thing happened to a woman I work with. She was running home after a set of barrels. The horn caught the snaps and her ta-tas were exposed to the world. Thank god she is the kind of person who laughs things off! Needless to say she wears a tank top under now :P

I can barely top the last one. A generously endowed gal was wearing a sloppy shirt while running barrels. As she was coming off #3 and heading for the home stretch her horse got a little broncy and she came off. Somehow her shirt and bra were hooked on the horn flying in the wind as the horse continued it's run. There she was down on her knees trying to hide her boobs. Someone arrived with a jacket. Even Hollywood couldn't have come up with something like that.

Years ago a close gal friend decided to sew herself a pair of glittery pants for barrel racing. While at her house she modeled them for me and they gave new meaning to the word "tight". The big day arrived and she and her little app flew into the ring. As he was turning #1 she heard the first rip, at #2, the second rip, at #3 he was realling digging and she heard the last rip. When she crossed the finish her tight pants resembled a pair of chaps with her pink panties exposed for all to see. The entire seam from front to back had let go.

Craziest thing for me...
Mostly just the people who show up at our shows that cost $20-$40 a class, judging and office fees and $60 for a stall that your horse stays in for about a week for this three day show, and looks like crap. I don't understand why they waste that much money when they don't even do well.

The western horses that come in with their nose in the air and canter instead of lope or don't neck rein at all.
Hunt horses without braids.
Badly fitted show clothing.
And of course people who enter their horse in almost every class possible and keep getting last because their horse is so tired after three days of 2 or 3 sessions a day, adding up to probably around 10 classes. I know some people will do that many in one day, but if you send one of our horses out like that over a period of time they start looking like crap, don't win anymore, and they get grumpy and sour.

I collected one of these just recently. Was at a smallish country show and arrived just in time to see a horse bust loose out of the tie-up to the trailer. Two horses tied up, one started panicking and pulling, just got worse, and then the halter blew and the horse went cantering off at a good clip. The remaining horse was freaked out by all of this, from what I could see, and was ripping out a lot of whinnies and starting to hop around. A guy erupted from the trailer and started *shouting* at the horse angrily (yeah, that's definitely the way to de-escalate) and then, I was appalled to watch, hauled off and socked that horse in the face. The horse pulled it's head away, peeled its lips off its teeth, and screamed at this guy as loud as it could. You don't have to be an Animal Communicator to know what it was saying.

Later, I saw that same horse - which was huge, taller than my guy, and he's 16.2...and with an obviously hot temperament. I'd give him an 8 on the 0-10 scale. Dunno what breed. Not an Arab, not a warmblood, probably not a guess is TB.

The in-hand showing was going on, and that horse towed his rider, who was a kid maybe 11 years old into the ring, up and down for the showmanship, and back out of the ring. Later I saw them the BEGINNER Age 7-12 class...yes, a gigantic hot-tempered horse in the Beginner walk-trot class...and as soon as the riders were cued to trot, this massive creature burst into a canter. Rider couldn't control him AT ALL. Fortunately, no one was injured.

I just thought it was incredibly sad. Rider savagely overhorsed, trainer or parent or whatever violent and abusive. People hitting horses in anger. That horse could probably be a great horse for a more accomplished and patient rider, but as it is, I reckon it's going to be developing a lot of behavior problems and getting handed around to different owners as uncontrollable.
