Tell me your funniest show stories?
I've been showing for 20 years so I have quite a few.
The funniest has to be:
I was leading Danny a HUGE 16hh Welsh section D who is as wide as he is tall and weighs at least 800kg. We were just walking back from the ring having won our inhand class. Danny had spotted the carriages in the main ring and was being an idiot as he didnt like them.
This ment that I had 800kg of cob, who thought he was a stallion, who had his eyes out on stalks, was being an idiot and who I was holding onto for grim death! He has grown a hand in excitement and was spinning round, striking out and generaly pulling like a steam train.
A Random guy stopped me and had his kid dangerously close to danny (and I was gritting my teeth and asking them to step back), then he asked me if I gave pony rides!
Honestly I nearly collapsed laughing!! Did I look like I gave pony rides, sorry but I was barely hanging onto this fire breathing monster that was pretending to be a horse and you want to put an 8 yearold kid on his back!!!
Would you put your kid on this when it was very obviously playing up and being a prat of epic porportions?
