Basically the thing I live by!

My above post about smashing into a gate, literally, right before the class, I said "I still haven't had any near falls at shows, I want a hard ride for once" and that's what I got!

For fair we have to keep these little slips of paper in our pockets while riding. It's for what classes we do, but we for some reason have to keep them in our shirt pocket.

Well, I was walking my horse when the wind picked up. It blew all of my papers out of my pocket and all the way across the arena. Another was going by that spot and got spooked and bucked the rider off. I feel really bad for my friend, It wasn't on purpose!!

I was riding a very green Arab for my instructor in an Arab under saddle class, and he was really anxious. He kept trying to take off and then rearing in the warm up ring - huge, vertical rears, where he was in the air for several seconds. The last one he did, he nearly tipped backwards, scared us both. So was peeing my pants as he went into the ring... where he went great. He was a little tense, but it was a small class and I just didnt let him too close to the others. He did really well, and placed second despite everything. However, the lap of honour was our downfall - horse in front went for a gallop, and he flipped out and took off, skidding to a halt at the ring gate, spun hard and threw a huge buck. Cue me, flying over the ring gate. I was fine, but winded myself on the landing, so stayed down for a minute to catch my breath. Next thing, the paramedic was leaning over me to see if I was conscious. I was VERY red in the face...

I remember when I was 6 or 7, it was my first time showing my new horse. I was doing cross rails (probably like 2 inches off the ground), and I was trotting to one and did have enough leg and went a** over tea kettle LOL. I was a tiny peanut on a 16.2 HH horse. So embarrassed, my WHOLE family (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc) came to watch me too

I have an arab cross that has that same attitude! They can be so mannerly one second, and turn into complete brats the next! I was riding my neighbors 18 yr old, overweight arab gelding, and after a great ride I decided to ride backwards, and he bucked me off! Such brats (;

Aww! At my first show, I thought I was good before I watched the tapes years later of that show, I was in a hunter eq class and whenever I posted my legs would move back and forth like crazy, plus my horse was spooky at everything! It was only a walk trot class THANK GOD. I looked like a total fool!

Wheew I have one! This past weekend was my first jumper show (I'm a hunter) just to get a show in before the one this weekend. Riding a mare that's veryy prone to refusing of course. We went in for warmup and rode flawlessly!! But guess who forgot the third to last jump. This girl. 1st round two refusals and 2nd round one refusal AND rode off course. Again. Now I'm known to work well under pressure and have NEVER gone off course before. Ah it was soooo embarrassing! I proceeded to be beaten by a tiny girl who almost got thrown in schooling. I came away with one fith place ribbon. Out of four. Deffinatly my worst show ever. Lol

Here, ladies and gentlemen, is the ONLY way one should dress after a long week of horse showing. Baggy PJ pants with ponies on them, team polo, shiny riding boots, and car keys hanging out the side of your boot. Hahahaha i had packed my bag already and we couldnt get it out of the truck cause it was behind the hay, so i grabbed the pants i wore the night before, and slapped them on and walked around the rest of the day and night in that. hahahahha i was the height of fashion.

I was the only person in my class one yr at county for English...all of a sudden my mare decides to go hard core bronc and I just kind of slipped off the side right next to the judge....not sure how it happened lol because it was easy to sit but yeah. I still won...because I was the only one in the class lol

And my trainer had been in the coned off part of the arena. She didn't even know until the person she was talking to pointed at me and she turned to see me standing and mounting back up.

Then in her typical screaming voice she yelled "why did you dismount?!". Aaaaand everybody in the coliseum heard and laughed. It was awesome.

*Insert something witty*
