    Yeah thanks, I am ! But I actually forgot what was "funny" always in a hurry :roll:
    This was in a riding class, and my trainer couldenīt hold it in and started laughing
    And I was a little embaressed since this was my first class with her
    It was better though, always better to laugh through the pain

    The funniest fall I had was when I just started taking lessons. I was 8 year old and was riding this quarter horse(i think) named Thunder. It had just rained a few days ago or so and there were big mud puddles all over the arena. My intructor asked me to trot and I did. I had NO idea Thunder hated water, so when a puddle came up, he leaped to the side and I fell in the mud. I was all covered in mud and of course my mom comes running over to make sure I'm ok, along with my instructor. I just remember having a huge smile on my face (not sure why). It's pretty funny thinking about it. Maybe I was happy I fell off, I don't honestly know.

    Another time, I didn't exactly fall off, but came pretty close. I was riding this half Arabian named Saba. I'm pretty tall, and his neck wasn't. I was cantering him and everything seemed fine until he just put on the brakes! All I remember was closing my eyes and praying for the best. His little neck stopped me and I couldn't believe I didn't fall off.

    My personal favorite was actually caught on tape by a friend. I was riding this tiny pony a number of years back... and let's just say he was full of attitude. We were just having some fun doing some jumps around this jumper course, and he was being, well, a pony... attitude plus. Anyways, I went up the (very small) bank, jumped the fence at the top, came back down the bank still in a two-point... now where's the worst possible point for a pony to buck? Probably when you're coming down a bank in a two point, so of course the pony bucked! I did a complete flip over his head and landed on my back. Now, on the tape the pony immediately started backing up after he felt me launch from the saddle, which made it look like I'd flown 10m in front of him.
    I remember lying on the ground and thinking "huh. This is comfortable.. I think I'll just lie here..."

    Another favorite: I was riding my mare and she spooked sideways in front of a jump. I slid sideways and somehow ended up hanging sideways from her. Dancer kept moving sideways away from me, with this look on her face like she was saying "get it off! Get it off!" I was laughing so hard that I couldn't push or pull myself back up, so I finally let go and landed in a heap at her feet.

    The pony was probably like "If I back aways slowly, they won't know I did it"

    Haha! Good point! Gosh it was funny!! .. I'm pretty sure he ran to the farthest end of the field after ... you know, just to make things that much better.

    I was at a horse camp, on a stubborn horse during Parents' Day, and she kept on refusing a jump (10 or more times!) Anyway, she finally figured out she had to do it, and took it like it was a 5' monstronsity instead of the maybe 2' baby it was. I am a horrible jumper, and came off her, but landed with her, one foot in the stirrup and one foot on the ground; thought, oh, well, might as well just jump right back on now. My trainer said she'd never seen anyone get back on as quickly.
    Another time I was riding my horse bareback and she was walking and I just kinda slid off--my horse gave me the weirdest look (I hadn't come off in years.)

    When I was about 12 and just learning to jump, I was approching a jump that was about 2.6 cross and went into 2. I was ready to go. The horse however was not. She stopped dead at the fence dropped her and and I SLIDE right down her neck on my stomach like a sliding board. I landed on the other side of the fence. She was looking at my like opps what happened then she nickered a bit like she was laughing at me.

    To date, this was my funniest fall.

    Poor Gem though :(

    I was galloping a pony up the hill and normally she slowly slows down when we reached the top but instead she slid to a stop and I just kept going it was so funny. Only my trainer saw it and she said she almost died from laughing so hard ha ha ha

    My funny is probably when my saddle slipped, slowly, and I was saying "The saddle's slipping!" and then it was halfway under Dakota and he acted like I was crazy or whatever. He is just too skinny. I think he needs extra saddle pads. :roll:
