Most embarrassing horse show moments!! =]

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!!

Haven't competed in too many shows... But I had to borrow a button-up shirt one day at a competition. Looked identical to Charlie Brown's yellow/black zig-zag shirt. Eeeeew. Then my saddle horn got caught between the buttons of it in the middle of running barrels.

~ forgetting my girth at a show and having to borrow one from some people that were next to us.

~ After cleaning my bridle I put my bit back on up-sidown and the judge told me about 3 classes later LMAO (It was in 13&Under)

~ Having showmanship hat fly off and smack the judge in the face

~ Getting called into the leadline class (while doing 18&Over)

~ Going into the wrong trailer to change out of my showmanship outfit.

Not mine:
~ friend forgot her horse at home... don't ask.

~ Friend brought the wrong horse to the show

~ Friend wore her English tall books under her showmanship pants b/c she forgot her showmanship boots.

LOL I know right? I guess she hauled two other friends (she has a three horse slant) and her friends had loaded up their horses but she had told them that her horse (boone) needed to go in first before their horses did. They never loaded boone up and she thought they had.

Last show I went to, the class before me ended quicker then I thought it would and I had to rush to get on. In the class, I could NOT keep my legs steady, they were pratically on my horses shoulders! After the class my trainer told me my tall boots wre unzipped. Oops!

I forgot to put that I know this one lady that went to lunge her horse but forgot to take her horse to the ring with her!! She took the lunge line and whip but not the horse. Haha. She was a bit blonde so it was really funny.
