When I was about 10 years old I was at my second show. I entered in a Walk-Trot Western class. I was riding the snottiest meanest pony which was green broke (not mine! Instructor thought I would be fine riding him) and the pony wouldn't stop trotting the whole class. It finally stopped when he noticed the others in the middle standing and he joined them. Nevertheless my parents were mad at that instructor for even letting me ride that evil thing. It was quite funny now looking back at it though :)
I've busted a bra or 2 riding over the years too, but the most embarassing moment....
Our new pastor was in the neighborhood and stopped by. My hubby brought him out to the barn to say hi to me...I was elbow deep cleaning one of our stallions! Our pastor learned all about cleaning a sheath...I was mortified!!!! Posted via Mobile Device
Same show, Artie and I had just won our gaited class and were gaiting pretty slow out of the arena. Some snobby kid came up to us and told us "no trotting outside the ring!" Well, she learned pretty quick that Arthur would never be trotting anywhere....
My first show ever:
I was so nervous I didn't even notice we were on the wrong lead... I knew better so it was way embarassing! I was young and it was my first show, but I remember being embarassed the whole day! We still won the class, though ;)
Same show, different class. In the lineup the judge called for 3 steps backward... Well my horse would not stop backing up and almost ran into the judge. He was like "Thats enough. That's enough! That's ENOUGH!" Lol.
At my first show, I ran into a poor girl and her pony ( probably around 13hh; with me riding a 16.2hh elephant) while she was entering into the dressage ring. I think I managed a "sorry!"...
At a different show, I had my phone in my very shallow pants pocket while in the warm up ring. I entered the dressage ring, forgetting about my phone, and half way through it fell out of my pocket on a 20 m circle. The judge didn't notice, however, It did get stepped on, twice, and my coach was nice enough to run out into the ring and grab it before the next person came in ^-^"
Lol my worst was about 2 months after I had been ridin the most quiet horse in the area I was walking with some buds around the square and he jumped at something aand I was in the dirt he took a flying gallop the rest of the way back to his yard Posted via Mobile Device
