Embarassing Moments on Horseback!

Share your most embarassing moments on horseback!

For me, I was in a show and the judge was in the middle of giving out ribbons and i was riding an older horse and i guess he was tired cause he coughed so hard some gas shot out the back end. he did it over and over again! and i mean he was loud! it was pretty funny

The essential joy of being with horses is that it brings us in contact with the rare elements of grace, beauty, spirit, and fire.

Hahaha, nice. I can picture it. Hope it wasn't also smelly!

I was at horse show but I wasn't showing just riding around and my mum was fixing my stirrup and she finished and said "ok go ride!" and I turned away and she slapped Champs butt super hard and he took off in a bucking fit. I was so mad! She's like "he almost stepped on my foot!" Did not!

Live to ride. Ride to live.

errrm....I was out hacking on my pony once and we were heading past this church which is up some really steep steps....for some unknown reason Solo decided that he wanted to go to church and proceeded to completely ignore me and start walking up the steps! So i'm getting really frustrated and moaning at him and kicking him on because I really didn't want him to start backing DOWN the steps. Anyway, I think I was being louder than I thought I was, and we got to the top of the steps and emerged into the churchyard...right into the middle of someone's funeral....oh dear god! I got out of there as quickly and quietly as possible! cringe....

Haha funny

About the best I have (which isn't that good) was when I fell off Sam one afternoon and I had gotten back on and ridden a bit more afterwards. Then when I went to get off I was a bit sore and pooped. So I to just slide off and ended up collapsed on the ground at his feet like I couldnt hold myself up. Lucky for me he just turned around and looked at me as if to say what are you doing down there you dork. My mum was the only one who saw and she said I looked pretty funny.

I tried to go under a low branch thinking a 4ft11 person on a 13hh pony could lean far enough back to slip under. Turns out I was wrong, the floor luckily was very soft. Trying to find the safety rubber from my stirrup was tons of fun in identically coloured leaves.

I was just about to post a thread like this... LOL

I remember in the begging of working with my green pony, she went from a lope to a dead stop- the back of my crappy synthetic saddle went up and tossed me out like a sling shot. I had quite a few people watching me eat dirt.

Heres another one, I used to check the mail regularly by horseback. Well one day my horses bridle caught the door of the mailbox and she tossed that thing over my head and into the road. I had a van coming up and I had to jump off and move it from the road. Till this day I haven't said a word to my grandparents about it. They thought someone had just knocked it off on purpose... oops

BarrelracingArabian, I have a story similar to yours

I was loping on Gambit when I noticed the saddle was slipping to one side, I got of to fix it but as I did, my bra AND shirt go stuck on the saddle horn and both came off over my head, there were about ten people who saw I quickly pulled my bra and shirt back on and kept ridding, but you can bet I am more careful now.

You are never better than anyone. Every rider has skills they need to improve. The only one you must compare yourself with, is you.
