Foundation.... I'm not sure which one made me laugh harder. You or SMC. Omg. Thank goodness I do not have a weak bladder. Or I'd be sharing my own "moment." I think I got the hiccups from all this.

^^^LOL! Glad you didn't have to share a "moment" :) It was majorly embarassing! It didn't help that I was cleaning our oldest and he enjoys it, one would think he needs a cigarette when you're done...I skipped church that Sunday.

Can't wait to hear more stories, this is an entertaining thread!

At my first show I entered a halter class. When I told the mare to stack in front of the judge, I hit the judge in the face with my whip! That was about 8 years ago and I'm still embarassed! We did manage to get 4th place though.

LOL I just choked on my cracker, not kidding. I would die! At my first show, I also entered a halter class, and stupid little me was trying to get Artie to square up by moving each foot forward, we ended up right up behind some guy's Paint; and I had to back him up and start all over again. Haha.

In my younger days I use to be an exercise jockey. One job I had was with a guy that had Arabian race horses. He rented a barn at a track that was nothing but thoroughbreds. This is many years ago before anyone really took Arabian racing seriously and in the heart of Virginia, where thoroughbreds rule. We were kind of the laughing stock, but I will say that Arabian racing is much kinder then Thoroughbred racing. One morning, we were working a couple of inexperienced horses on the track and a group of jockeys from the other barns were standing near the track making crude comments as we went by about the Arabians. We ignored them but when we finished our lap and came around the corner near the other jockeys again, my horse spooked at the crowd and I fell off right in front of them and my horse took off like an idiot and ran another lap around the track. Very humiliating.

Two years ago when the riding off the border boundaries were starting for the year i couldn't find my black jodhpurs so used a pair of black leggings...needless to say they weren't very sturdy and what was an unnoticeable hole in the bum turned in to a pretty **** good window as too what was underneath! I felt a slight breeze then i realized what had happened and ended up riding the rest of the ride out with my ass firmly attached to the saddle! (the ride-outs leading up to the big day usually consist of about 40 people)

A few summers ago, it was the last lesson of the night, so I went out and started warming up as the lesson kids were cooling out. There were still quite a few parents and such around watching.
While I was doing some transitions or something, a wasp flew down the front of my shirt! I freaked out and stopped, then dug around in my shirt trying to get it to fly out... and it stung me!
Everyone was like, what are you doing? It was awkward...

Also, I was at a show with my friend and her coach, who's horse she was riding. He was VERY lazy. It was the last show of the night, and just a fun class called carrot trail, where you lead a horse through a trail course with literally just a carrot. No tack, halter, or anything, they just follow you and the carrot. At the last second she chickened out and said, "you take him! I'll just loose! He'll run away or go to sleep or something." So I was like "SWEEET!", and competed in like, sweat-pants and sneakers... (fun class remember-no points deducted, though frowned on.)
Anyways, we did well, but I still didn't think we placed, so I didn't pay attention to the name callings as we were joking around and such.
Turns out I actually won, and they had called my name for about 10 minutes waiting for me to go collect my prize, and when I finally realized it, and went and got it, they had given it to second place instead. XD

A while back, my friend asked me to bring her horse out to the pasture. Being as lazy as I am and having my helmet in hand, I tied the lead rope to the halter and went to jump onto the horse-- I jumped too far and rolled right off of poor Chip's other side and landed on my butt. Chip turned his head and gave me the "What are you, stupid?!" look that horses give you when you fall off. I remember laughing so hard that I almost peed myself.
