    When my fil borrowed my horse last year and put one of those on him, he was not too much of a happy camper but settled down pretty quick! It was like WTH!

    ^^^^ LMAO! I do have to say tho. That one time when I just moved in with my now husband, then boyfriend. I was using his moms saddle and didn't have a breast collar on and well, his dad was a big one to loosen the cinch and walk the horse a bit after a ride. Well, I did and the horse somehow got loose and bucked the sh** out of that saddle until it came off! All I could do was watch and cringe. OMG! And, guess who drove up as it was happening??? His dad! YEP! All he said to me was................ is that Bette's saddle? And I was like.................. yep.... OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG! Anyway, now I do not ride without one (very rare if I would). I also do not try to make other people happy and change my routine or the way I do things. This was a biggie in the loosening of the saddle in the first place. Anyway, lesson learned and please be kind and do not tell me what an idiot I was, I already know that, lol.

    Haha no way!! We all do things we think are dumb at one point. Somebody had just taken food off of a stove I forgot and said "is this hot" and put my hand right on it and burned my hand. Very very stupid of me lol so your story isn't that bad
