The first time I took my now 24 year old QH to a show, he was 3 then...

I thought he was the most beautiful horse anyone could ever own and I was so excited, I pulled him off the trailer and all my friends gathered around to see him for the first time.

He was about 200 lbs under weight, you could actually put fingers between his ribs, he had starvation hairs, he had a hole in his face that drained puss and I didnt own clippers so I did his bridle path with scissors. He was so pretty... Anway, I pulled him off the trailer and everyone was so nice about him until this boy with his fancy appy walked by and laughed so loud. I remember to this day, he said "You are NOT going to show THAT FARMPONY are you?"

I showed him alright... he reared in every class! I fell off in the warm-up ring, he got loose from the trailer and I've never been prouder... I OWNED HIM... bought him with MY OWN money... I was like... 16 maybe 15. I didnt know how bad he looked until years later when I looked at pix... wow... I took him out in public like that!

Hehe ohhh that was by far the worst show I've ever been at.. EVER! I still have all my fingers, they were just very very sore for a long time after that event.

Although Frog's post made me remember of another one:
My first mare (Dancer) was alone in the 4-horse straight load trailer while the other horses were being used in various classes; all of a sudden there's an urgent message on the PA system about a horse that's freaking out in a trailer.. sure enough it's Dancer. (Who else has bad luck like me?)
She had tried to jump over the chest bar and had gotten stuck with her front legs over the bar, and was flipping out over being caught.
My dad got in the trailer and lifted her off the bar while someone else let it down - I still can't believe it.
There ya go, another embarrassing moment!

Had a little 13.2hh connemara and we used to go to a showjumping derby,
Nearly everytime we went we would jump through the dike and
She would take hold and gallop me towards the water jump and fire me off into it!!
Very entertaining for everyone else but very embarasing for me!!
This was her on a more sucsessfull day compeating in working hunter pony..

Woah that must be hard to deal with.
She is gorgeous, though!

Success comes a [bit] at a time.
