OK! This is soooooo stupid!

I was taking lessons to get back into riding because I had a very long break. And It was the first time I was suppose to go into the canter with this tiny horse named Brandy who was so narrow its sad. And I've been cantering before its not like it was my first time.

So we get into the canter. I start sliding off to the outside of the circle. My teacher keeps telling me to let my weight go down in my leg, she's now yelling it to me im looking down at my leg, thinking "go down! Go down, GO DOWN!" and I fall off.

I got up so freakin fast. Its sad, I knew what I needed to do but my leg would not listen. I wasnt scared or anything I just had a HUGE brain fart. I never fell off at the canter after that. Well I have but cause my horse spooked.

My funniest fall has to be the time I was riding my uncles mare Brandy in the pasture. His pasture is hilly and I was riding bareback so I had fallen of a couple times earlier. So I was kicking Brandy trying to get her to go and finally she took off cantering and I'm like look at me!! Then she stops and I go flying off over her head and she just looks at me like finally I don't have to carry you around anymore. :roll:

Ah, I don't have many funny falls, but here goes one:

I was on a trail ride on my old horse, Cody 2 years ago. We were galloping, we kinda do a race thingy lol it's really fun. Just galloping through the cornfield area.
So then he starts getting slower, I think he wanted to wait for the other horses to come along *yes, he was herdbound on the trail* (we were in the lead, lol) so he stops suddenly, I slide over his neck, & onto the ground. LOL it was funny 'cause afterwards everyone else (about 5 ppl) started coming! Cody was probably happy about that, but I was embarrassed...'cause we lost. :( haha! His neck was okay too, don't worry.

But yeah, that was kinda funny.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

Right hafter I just posted my funniest fall...I fell off on the trail! Well it was raining and I was wearing jeans so they got suctioned on to me and I couldnt mount from the ground so I had to find a log. And since I was soaking wet and the saddle was wet. I got on and slid right off the other side and landed on my knees...lol. My firend saw it and was laughing...it really sucked cause I lost my stirrup and couldnt get it back on so I had to walk to rest of the way.

***This is sooooo darn funny***


Lol... ok so this didnt happen to me but my friend. It happend today out on the trail. So it was her first time with her horse to go on a trail nothing to serious just the galloping fields. So Ashley me and kat were all in the fields and Ashley told Kat to go trot up the hill.."gus wont buck don't worry" So she goes trotting up the hill gus starts taking off and turns sideways on the hill and starts crow hoping and bucking.

So then she is on her stomach trying to stay on and she finally does an emergancy dismount and lands on all fours like a cat...its was sooo funny cause it was in slow motion. Then Gus continues to buck around on the hill (oh goodness I can't stop laughing) and he's running around like a ****** lmao...and kat is on the ground and says "my vag hurts." (sorry if its to 'graphic')

So now were trying to catch Gus. Im still on my horse and he's now cantering straigh toward me. So I jump off super fast and he turns just in time. Pheww, right? Well then we finally catch him. He broke his bridle. And she is still complaning "my gina hurts" It was soooo funny. But she was just like "wooo yah this was great for my first trail ride with him!" that's bubbles for ya... ^_^

Little late reply but I'm loving this thread...keep the good fall stories coming!!

So my funniest fall was at camp 2 years ago. It was my last year as a camper (I was at advanced camp), but that summer was also my first year as a camp counselor. Meaning I'm supposed to be one of the more experienced riders. And a lot of the girls at that camp knew me. So anyway a bunch of us were riding bareback in the arena. The horse I ride has such a ridiculously bouncy trot that I probably shouldn't ride him bareback at all but I do anyway. The instructor actually asked me several times if I was sure I wanted to go bareback but I insisted I'd be fine. So we're trotting along and all of a sudden he hits a jump standard--they have low ones you set the pole on, and the jump was sitting just several feet out from the rail. He's also super spooky so it freaked him out and he hopped to the side, and I flew the other way. Everyone told me afterwards it made a really loud thump when I hit the ground. :roll:
