Funny Horse Disasters, Share One!

This thread is for those moments where somebody says "one day you will laugh at this" and all you want to do is punch them, but now you are ready to laugh!!!! In the case of my story, I started laughing about 5 minutes later....but maybe it took you five years!!! This is going o be very long because I am starting from the very begining...so here it is:

When I was 7, I did a girlscout project on ireland and told my mom that when I was 13, I wanted to gallop on a beach in Ireland. She agreed, not knowing that 6 years later, I STILL REMEMBERED. So that explains why I am sitting in my bed at and irish bed in breakfast right now. 2 days ago, we attempted our first beach gallop. It was just me and my mom and a cute polish guy. So to get to the beach, you have to walk up this GIANT mountain of sand. Well it was and unisually nice day and my horse, Rossa, decided that the sand was the perfect temperature for rolling in! When he laid down, I just politely stepped of and he jumped up and I remounted. I know I should have had a crop, but no one knew the horse would do this, so no one gave me a crop. So we get down to the beach and Rossa tries to roll again, I am halfway off when he stood back up, though. Since these horses have been taught that once you are on the beach, you gallop, period, Rossa started running. Keep in mind I am still hanging on his shoulder. Obviously I dropped off and tried to grab a rein, but to no avail. He ran. Fast. So the polish guy (our guide) ran after him while my mom tried to keep her horse, Rebel, from running with them, also to no avail. He took off after them and I began to walk down the bech. At one point I turned around to look at a pattern in the sand, and when I looked back I could no longer see the horses and assumed they had run back upo the moutain of sand, until I saw a navy blue lump rising out of the sand in the distance. Of course, it was my mother. Apparentlyt she had lost a stirrup and bailed. So we enjoyed a scenic walk on a beach in Ireland whileour horses completedq the gallop alone. The End!!!

Yesterday we went back to the beach and I got to do my beach gallop with a swiss girl while my mom and the guide stayed far away so my moms horse would not gallop. IT WAS SOOOOOOOOO FUUNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!! We are going again today, my mom is switching horses to a tiny old slow pony so she can come too and all is well!!!! Sooooo ya post your funny horse disaster!!

One time I was on my horse bareback and he had a mini spook, I hadnt know I had fallen until I was sitting on my butt infront of him looking up at his nose. Haha sadly nobody witnissed it, so I don't know how I ended up onfront of him when I was on his less then a second before lol

Also sometimes my friend and I will go on a road ride, and we will trot. If we are heading home (even if its down a long road and around a turn and down another road) he will speed trot home. My 14.3hh horse goes into standerdbred mode, MASSIVLY extends, and bombs it, at a trot. So fast I have to go into to-point because I can't post that fast lol my friend was cantering her horse and we were still going faster then them. We had to stop the horses, not being they were un controlable, but because we were laughing so hard we couldnt breath, let alone controle the horses lol

Showing
I turned my solid black mare into a zebra for a costume class as a kid. White liquid shoe polish does NOT wash out well. Despite all of my bathing & grooming efforts, I ended up showing a zebra the next day for western show. Had an understanding judge and our picture on the front page of the paper when she stood grand looking like a faded zebra is still talked & laughed about almost 20 years later ;)

Ha good idea for a thread!
I went out on the morning wrangle (gathering horses on horseback) one morning and my boss got lost in the pasture. He pulled out a flashlight, which caused my horse to turn tail and run. I regathered her and returned to group, who were all laughing. I guess from their view it was this little circle of light out of which the horse bolted. I was then blinded by the light from the flashlight and tried to gather a herd of elk thinking they were just really light footed horses. I sort of knew that as they moved but I really wanted to get close enough to see them. Next thing I knew I heard my bosses voice "Those are ELK". That was the same day that my pants tore open at noon. Not my finest day.

We had a horse at the barn I used to work at that liked to bolt when you turned him out. Without fail, he would spin around, rip the rope out of your hands and take off. I eventually had to start leading him out with a chain over his nose since neither the BO or his owner seemed particularly interested in trying to fix this dangerous behavior.

The first time I went to turn this horse out, I had been warned about this habit but wasn't fully prepared for what was coming. As I was standing there trying to get the gate open, he got away from me and took off down the road. I ran after him panic stricken, wondering what I would tell my boss if he were to get hit by a car or something. I was on the verge of calling her when he turned into one of the neighbor's driveway. I was able to corner him and take him back to the field. I never did end up telling my boss about it but I made sure to get the gate open before I brought the horse out from then on.

I went riding once when I was younger in my favorite tattered vintage levis...

We got about a mile from home and I needed to pee. So, did my business and was attempting to remount when my mare heard her buddies holler for her. She spun and I landed HARD on my rear, she took off towards home. When I got up I realized my entire hiney was hangin out, with nothing under to cover my goods!
So I march home, get to the road, and there like a knight in shining armor is the best looking boy in town holding her by the reins!!!! He said he knew she was my horse, ditched his sportscar, grabbed her and was about to call 911 for help! (his family also owned a huge operation with amazing QH's!) I was so embarrassed, I couldn't hold my pants together so in frustration I grabbed the reins and mounted as quick as I could, gave him a thanks and rode off, hiney shinin! I was sooo mad!

He musta liked what he saw, we went on a few dates later!

Ok I'll cop to it but nobody better pass this story on...lol When I was about 16 (100 years ago or so) it was winter time and we decided we want to pull an inner tube behind the horse in the snow. I saddled the mare up and my brother tied the rope to the tube. He handed me the other end of the rope and I mounted. I looked around and thought (yes this made sense at the time) If I dally this rope to the horn it will have to go over my thigh and as we are galloping and frolicking in the snow it will put alot of pressure on my leg and be painful. So being the intelligent redneck I am, I decided to tie the rope around my waist... (yes seriously now quit interrupting!) we got all set and my brother gave me the thumbs up from the tube.. I leaned forward kicked the horse and hissed... well the tube moved about three feet and the horse took of like a quarter horse should.. but as the law of physics still applies (even in rural Idaho) I came off like I was tied to a telephone pole.. sitting in the snow I realized my error... my brother on the other hand made no comment as he couldn't breathe well enough for about an hour.. everytime he looked at me he doubled over.. For the record I can still only generate a chuckle over that one.. A full on laugh may be another 25 years away....

Foal
When I was about 7, my dad decided thatI needed to start riding my sisters POA lego, who has always had it out for me. I never had worn a helmet before but that day I did bc I knew he was going to do something dumb. So as my dad and I went out in the field next to us he dicided it would be funny if he ran as fast as he could us to the edge of the field. SO did lego, He dug in so much it felt like a crow hop, we were running as fast as I had ever so I kicked and kicked bc I thought I had control. I was WRONG! We ran through the fiel down the 5 acre yard and straight into the barn. My helmet gave me terrible burns on my neck bc it was tight enough I guess. Now he is so small and I can run him you and dwn the field bareback. He's a little stinker though. :)
