I figured we could all use a little entertainment so lets hear some of your most embarrassing horse show moments (in and out of the show ring)!
Here's some of mine:
~getting my spurs caught on each other while lunging and falling down in the middle of the ring
~forgetting patterns (every type of pattern you can think of I have forgotten it at some point in the 13 yrs I have been showing!)
~forgetting my glasses and not being able to see the judge nod for me to do my pattern in horsemanship
~horse rearing up in halter
~leaving my chaps rolled up and leaving my showmanship pants in my boots
~ horse randomly spooking in the show ring and getting called to the middle
~my western bit literally fell in half when I was waiting to go into one of my classes. (I have no idea how that happened)
Some embarrasing moments that are not mine, but I have seen:
~Falling down in the middle of a showmanship pattern
~ head stall fell off in western pleasure
~ some lady was so drunk that in the middle of a hunter under saddle class she was trotting around and she just kinda falls off of her horse
~ halter horse starts rearing up and going crazy in the middle of the class and got away from his owner and starts trotting laps
~ lady fell off of her horse in the practice ring and they closed the gate so the horse couldnt get out and it jumps the fence!!
