My dad grew up in Europe. While on a trip to Spain when my aunt was little, my Grandpa thought it would be a great idea to take the kids on a pony ride. Speaking only a little Spanish, he was able to understand that the owner of the pony was insistent he always held onto the lead rope. They took off onto their pony ride with my aunt in the saddle. After about 15 min. of walking and the pony dragging it's feet the whole way, my Grandpa stopped to take a picture of her on the pony. Only for a second did he let go of the lead rope. No sooner had he let go, the pony bolted and started galloping away at top speed. My aunt 4 years old at that time was wailing and clinging to the saddle horn with her little legs flapping at the pony's sides. Then the saddle began to slip and she was riding on his side. They weren't able to catch him until his saddle was hanging from his belly with my aunt clutching madly to the saddle. She had to be pried off. Needless to say she won't go near horses to this day.:) Hahaha!

My dad was telling me about the old milk cart horse from when he was a kid, Charlie, who knew his route that well that he'd wait until the milkman had grabbed an order and then continue to the next stop and wait. One day there was a new police officer in town who saw what he thought was a loose horse and tried to stop Charlie. The moment he reached for the bridle he had his fingers nipped and Charlie continued to stop at the next house a few metres away like nothing had happened.
Apparently nothing stopped Charlie in his duty except my great aunt. She and Charlie were in the habit of having a biscuit/cookie when the milk was delivered to her place. She ended up in hospital for a few weeks and the first day Charlie stopped at her house and would not move for anything. Eventually the milkman had to go find him a biscuit so he'd continue with his work lol

A farm gal had taught her horses to come to the house should they ever get loose. She'd been after hubby to install a big patio door in the bedroom, so nice to awaken and see the animals in the nearby pasture. After years of nagging, the doors were finally installed. The first morning she awakened to be greeted by two horses looking thro the glass. She then saw more movement and there were four horses and 20 calves waiting for her to emerge. Her hubby couldn't get off the bed for laughing.

Once my horse bucked and pooped at the same time.

I was at a show once warming up my horse and my class was coming up so my trainer and I walked back to where my family had set up chairs. It was really hot and I was super thirsty so my mom told me to hop down and relax for a second. I reluctantly agreed and started to slide off when… RIIIIIIIIPPPP. I was dangling from the crotch of my breeches on the safety stirrup. I literally had about ten minutes before my class went on and I was SO embarrassed because my mom had to go running around asking all the riders who had gone if I could borrow their pants.

She eventually got this one girl to strip off her pants but by that time I was seconds from being called in the arena and I had to end up taping the hole with tape and going into the arena. I literally cried from being so embarrassed, it was horrible. Note to self: dismount carefully at shows when you have peacock stirrups XD

I always say that my Hackney pony lives to torture my quarter horse. He makes it his goal! So I had a lunge whip that got broken and for some reason I had it leaned on the other side of the fence. Well I looked out my window and the pony, Java had somehow pulled the whip through the fence and was swinging it around. Once he figured out that the other horses didn't really appreciate the end of the whip swinging around them, he began to have fun. He would spend HOURS chasing the mares around the pasture with the whip. Flipping his head up and down to get the rope part to swing.
I can't tell you how much enjoyment it brought me! =]
I never could find the whip when I would try to go and take it away.

Oh I have a funny horse story to share. It happened years ago and is funny NOW but was very embarrassing when it happened. I was riding this big beautiful Chestnut Saddlebred on a long trail ride. It was his first trail ride and he was doing GREAT. I was so proud of this horse. After a few hours of riding, I had to go to the bathroom and there was an outhouse type bathroom along the trail. My friends were out on their horses, people were riding by. IT was a long charity ride so there were hundreds of riders. I hooked a lead rope to the horse and held the end of the rope as I went into the outhouse. I pulled my pants down, went to the bathroom and was about to pull my pants up but must have shifted my feet which made a noise and spooked my horse. He proceeded to jerk me right out of the outhouse with my pants still down. I was scrambling to get them pulled up while still trying to hold on to my horses lead. I didn't want him to run off. Ugh! Let's just say, it would have been really funny to see, not so much fun to be the person involved. ha ha

My horse is a draft cross. No feathers, but a big boy with huge feet. One summer day I went out to the pasture and noticed nasty little flies(?) in his ears having a picnic. As I gently rubbed/scratched inside his ears, he picked up a hind foot and started "air scratching" like a dog.

I laughed so hard I almost fell down. (Then I went to TSC and bought the best fly repellant I could find!)
