I have one, not nearly as horrid as all the rest.

My horse and I were at an event this year, our first one ever as a team, and I felt awesome. We had an amazing warm-up for our dressage, and we headed over to the dressage ring to ride our test. On the way over, Zip spooked at a baby stroller headed the other way. I recovered from that, no biggie, got him paying attention again, got back into my mindset. I hear the bell, enter at my trot, had a beautiful centerline, and was so focused on that perfect line I had just ridden... Zip kept that line right on over that tiny little white fence and up to the judge's booth.

I was disappointed, to say the least.

One time I was a little late arriving to a show, but not to the point I missed any classes, they hadn't even started yet and I was either in #5 or #8, and I was riding with my trainer because I had to get my horse in the trailer and she'd just take us since she had another horse to take, too. Well anyways, I got my horse out, and my aunt had brought our trailer since it had all the tack and my show clothes in it and such, so I got my horse out and took her over to the trailer and tied her up, then just jumped in the tack room of the trailer to change into my show shirt. I got in, closed the door, and after I was changing realized that I had locked myself in there. I had to call my mom, because thank god I had my cell phone on me because I usually don't at shows. My entire family laughed at me, but I ended up winning that class and being eligible for the grand/reserve grand champion class.

Embarassing

One time I was showing and I had a really bad problem. My pony was kinda lame. She trotted every jump and she's a small pony and the jumps were either 2.3 or 2.0 ( I don't remember).

Ok soooo don't make fun of me too badly please >.< *big sigh* ok I won't beat around the bush.... I was at a kind of playday hunter show thingy and I entered the ring and did my course. It wasn't perfect probably 3rdish I was thinking (ended up 2nd woot) BUT when I came out of the ring it felt like I had pee'd my pants?! If you didn't guess it I started my period >.< My friend came trotting up to me and said "I have spare jods and a tampon in the trailer" I about died >.< we had a male judge too >.< OMG so everytime I 2pointed over a jump... bloody mess... ew omg! It was horrible. (Btw this happened about a year ago lol so when I was 19ish) yeah it sucked lol.
