I had a similar feinting story.
I was riding prelim in a horse trials in Pen. I had a bad fall, and back then, you were allowed to remount and continue on course. I was very determined to finish. I had no more faults and finished the course. As soon as I went through the finish flags and slowed down, I feinted dead away. Yup, major concussion with three days of major puking.

I love the story of the barrel horse kicking the barrel back upright. I think that horse is worth a million bucks (hmm maybe I should say dollars?). I think you may have protested the penalty.

Ahah, Magic hates it when she knocks over barrels! She knocked one over in practice once, and got so upset, she kicked the barrel halfway across the arena! At first I thought she was spooking at teh falling barrel, so I went about leading her to a barrel and then just knocking it over, but she didn't care, so I've figured that it's just a tick of hers. It also gives me a really good reason to keep from knocking over barrels!
Even if I'd protested it, I wouldn't have placed... I think I was running just under 30 seconds at the time.

Might be a bit too graphic.But when I was 7 my cherry popped.I was riding a sheltland and I guess in the bounce up my mom saw what had happened and jumpped the rails and snatched me off the horse and walked me across the areana to the bathroom..She was more scared then I was..Best part about this is was at the Walking Horse Celebration.So ide say about 1000 people saw.After mom had figuered out what happened she felt more embarresed then I was and then had to explain to me what had happened and that the same thing happened to her.Best part was yes I was wearing ALL WHITE

Ahh diegosmum you would have had no idea ;) I find that funny though.....

My stories
- I went to get a snowcone- when I came back I jumped the fence and split my breeches.

Oo.O - I was at a showjumping championships and I was doing the six bar- got a bit carried away and overreleased I fell off my horse and over the jump and she followed and when she landed it was on my arm and leg (crotch region) she tried hard not to but she was in the air so I don't blame her... anyway her shoe tore my breeches right open and god was I in pain but I saw that the ambulance officer that was racing towards me was a fat old man -- well I didn't want him checking me out so I got back on my horse and rode away.... well I went to hospital after I had taken care of my horse ;)

I also think that once I went up to accept a trophy that wasn't mine- cause I wasn't listening oops

Well at the last show I was at I was walking with a friend of mine as he was cooling his horse out after XC, he made me angry and I ALMOST gave him a nice mud-boot mark on his clean white breechs, but im to nice.

Now when I was at a camp with my trainer it had DOWNPOURED and the arena was really muddy. I was joking with my friends about how funny it would be if someone fell. I was that someone.

I was riding my schoolmaster Bishop at a show, warming up, nd I was SO proud cause you know... he's a schoolmaster and NEVER does ANYTHING bad! You can picture what happened next :)

I was cantering towards a warm up jump, an oxer, when I felt his strides change, then he took off THREE strides early and jumped this 60cm like a metre 20!!! Needless to say I ended up in the dirt... :)

Ohimigosshh. Had a gymkana two or more weeks ago, and we had a race where we were supposed to put on a jacket over our clothes and ride back. Soo I ripped the jacket. Haha. Teammates were not happy with me ;)

Not mine but... A friend of mine and I were playing a game at horse camp a few years ago. Everyone was split into two teams, and each team had two buckets and a cup. We had to run to the far bucket, scoop out water, run back and dump the water into the closer bucket, and then switch to the next team member. My friend's horse ran up to the bucket full of water and stopped as she tried to reach the bucket.... and then her horse just turned and drank all the water right there. XD
