Having a usually very predictable pony suddenly decide to stop at the very last minute, I shot over her neck and somehow caught the bridle on the way over and pulled it right off with me, she then proceeded to refuse to be caught and galloped round the ring for what seemed to be a very embarrassing eternity.

My worst/best is my horse over jumped so much and tried so hard i was jumped clear out of the saddle.... and ended up... STANDING ON HIS SADDLE! Sure we got a rail down on the next jump, and i sat back into the saddle as he jumped again. But my trainer and the entire crowd were dieing laughing. hahaha im known as "tricky" at some of the shows in the area now. hahahhahha i think i may have it on video. ill look around XD

My horse and I were galloping in a pole bending class and my horse tripped and fell on her side. She landed on my leg but the arena was pretty muddy so it only hurt a bit. But everyone was watching! Then my dad ran into the arena to give me a piggy back ride since I was limping. As he was walking back, he started running and weaving through the poles!

I only showed in Play days, and never had an embarrassing moment, but two local teen girls that I knew had a dad who was very strict and controlling, he also taught lessons. At all of the play days, he would scream and cuss loudly at his daughters, which I know was very embarrassing to them, and to everyone else. He would actually scream things like "Get that MF around that GD barrel, dammit". I know that both the girls turned out very badly, and I can see why.

MOD, delete if felt best.

I HOPE that no personal information is giving out in this Vid. I know the person and horse as I had my horses at this place. The owner had her own agenda and would NOT listen about acclimating and moving out of her very private "circle club" and exposing herself and horse to real life.

NOT me talking in the video or anywhere near; I had my own horses to prep.

I DO commend that she stayed the saddle until she could not take anymore and dismounted in the ring and had others help her lead the horse out.

Comment about the horse "Hurricane?" No one could ride this stallion... until I did. And a great ride he was... taking him out of the stable area.

What I hope to show is that horses need to be exposed to many different things This horse and owner never left the circle club.

Reviewing the vid? It is public domain but will let MOD do what ever. No hard feelings.

Thank you.

I was about 15, and I got my period about a week early in bright white jods in the middle of the class. I felt it happening before I went into the ring but was focused on my horse and so dismissed it as nerves or something. There was nothing I could do once I felt myself start to leak.
It was a jumping class, so my butt was pushed out and visible.

As soon as I was done, I'd qualified for the jump off, but I loaded up with my jacket tied around my waist and got out of there.

Worse yet, my Dad was the only person with me, and I was 15, at that age I didn't talk about things like that with my Dad.

Everything is horrifying when you are 15, but this was especially so.

I had been working on my barrel horse all winter, and he was doing good! Running like a pro. So I think, ok it's time for some competition. So I take him barrel racing and he starts out perfect, swung around that first barrel so hard and dead ran to the second one. Only problem, instead of going around the barrel, he gets down and does a rollback and cuts the barrel instead. My end time: 30 seconds. Lol. The goof.

I had to leave early for the show, messed up the white pants and took my dad's jeans instead (several sizes larger). Well... With the tight belt and tall boots I managed to hide the size of those pants. Not that I was really embarrassed, but it was uncomfortable to ride.

Speaking of falling off....I had a near miss last Sunday at the first show of the season. Was during a road hack class while in 2 point hand gallop, I was coming around the corner, feeling so good, horse is going perfectly, huge class, 1/2 the class is standing in the center of the arena as it was so big, we hand galloped in heats. In the corner area, a few riders are having problems with their horses, so I cut the corner towards the center to give them space but enough to avoid the riders in the center. All of a sudden, one of the horses that was giving their rider some trouble in the corner, veers in front of me and I see two back hooves coming straight towards me! My horse saved me and jumped sideways with lightening speed, I kind of get lopsided but I hung onto to his neck, bad move he's showsheened up & slick, so I slide, but I can see my horse's face as I am sideways on him, but I know my seat is still good, I just got to get upright again, so whoa, whoa works and I am up again, phew! Close call, judge ends the class, she seen the whole episode and I get 2nd, oh well, got penalized a little (I had taken first in every english thus far). However what made me very annoyed was I gave my camcorder and my still camera to my daughter who was watching, did she get any of that? NO!!!!!!!
