Angry OMG worst show ever!

So i went to a show yesterday, and I woke up not feeling very good. I didnt think much of it, but while i was schooling I started to feel reaaalllyyy sicck. I was riding so poorly, and while i was exiting the ring after my first trip, which sucked by the way, i leaned over and puked infront of everyone!!! Then I went in for my second trip, came out of the ring, got off, barfed again infront of everyone, and got back on. Sme thing with the next trip, uuggghhhhh most embarassing thing ever. Has this ever happened to anyone else before????

So sorry to hear that, creates a memory you will never forget!!!

Yes it happened to me... but it was all my fault. I was going to the Maryland state fair when I was a kid. I was so excited I could not sleep or eat. I got to the barn at about 4 am to start working on my pony. (it was grooming and showmanship class) I made sure she was gleaming and her braids were perfect! I worked so hard. By the time the class rolled around I was exhausted. It was steaming hot and I could barely stand. I did my best to show the pony properly. It was a huge class and I wanted to win so badly. I really thought I could before I blew it by being so sick. I was literally puking anytime the judge turned her back. My face was ash white and I was trembling.

My mom asked the judge to be allowed to give me water and the answer was no. I placed second which was just a ribbon. But first was a big champion ribbon.

Darn it!

I think you should be proud of yourself for toughing it out. A lot of people would've just quit... I hope that your next one goes better though!

I was interviewing a potential part boarder recently (obviously not as important as a show!) Being 6 months pregnant, I was really morning sick. I was lunging the horse and barfing at the same time ;) Good thing I was in the sand ring, really easy to clean up.

I'm sorry that happened to you. I've never puked at a show but I've ridden with a temp of 102 and I've ridden with a spraned ankle etc etc etc but no puking. I am sure the day will come with everything I ride though lol.

Luckily I've never thrown up from the back of a horse, I've gotten off and almost chucked. Haha.

It is not enough for a man to know how to ride; he must know how to fall.
