this year, I decided to take my new horse to a show that was abut 45 minutes from my house, Knowing he didnt realllyyy like trailors but he was fine. The whole show he did fine, just walked around and hung out with friends. But wen we went to leave, THe trailor breaks got stuck, COuldnt unhook it because there was something going on with the truck to! We put the horses in th sow pen and waited for hours until we left. We had to use someone elses truck and trailor. Left at 3 in the morning.

I was 10 and my brother was 9. I didn't want him hanging out with myself and my horsey friends. So I put him on a barn sour pony, thinking he'd just want to stay home. He fought that pony like a rodeo bronc. We were golden once we got gone, but coming back to the house and started up the drive and the pony bolted. Flat out bit in the teeth. He ran right into the pony run in, which had a smaller opening to keep the horses out of it. My poor brother splatted like a bug on a windshield on the top half of the pony run. He didn't let go of the reins(death grip X200) and the pony did a complete back flip. Fixed the pony of being barn sour though!!
I admitted to my Mom what I had done while we were taking my brother to the ER. She stopped on the side of the highway and lit up my life HARD.
Brother had a concussion and a broken nose. Plus he had a slave of an older sister for 90 days. Part of my punishment was his chores and mine for 3 months. I had to fetch and carry for the little turd the whole 3 months.
He volunteered me for EVERYTHING. Grass cutting, raking, house cleaning, stall cleaning, puppy pooper scooper, dish washer; heck you name it, he volunteered me for it! Good times though LOL
He was the last one to ride that pony before he was euthanized. This was some 20 years later. We all cried like babies and he proudly told the story of how he broke him from being barn sour. He was HIS pony after that. He hated everyone else. I still miss that evil little biting demon.

I miss you Rascal. Every day, all day.

I have another entry.. shocking I know.. I was about 9 my mom was working on something and asked me to grab the grain pan and bring it to her. Said grain pan was right at the feet of her mare "Corky" aptly named I assure you.. without thinking I strode directly up to the pan, which brought me up to the horse's 6 oclock position, bent over to pick up the pan which is precisely the moment that Corky noticed me. right rear hoof to the right eye and this 9 year old executed a perfect Hollywood punch reaction, nice arc into a heap on the ground. Had the most beautiful shiner and even held onto the grain pan. So the answer is yes, as a matter of fact, I was kicked in the head by a horse as a child!

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....

holy cow.... I'm in stitches here laughing. That is fantastic! I have a feeling I'm going to sit here for a while chuckling to myself like an idiot.

That is HILARIOUS Longshot, I cracked a rib on the last part!

Rascaholic that story was classic! Reminded me of when..

I was 9 or 10 and didn't have a horse at the time. So my neighbors who were childless (they doted on me) let me come "exercise" their 18 year old, 17hh OTTB. He was their track horse and dead broke. So I was going to go over and my little brother who was and IS still a TERROR decided I wasn't going without him. I begged mom to let me go alone but she demanded I take him. Kid had NO interest in horses, only desire in life was/is to torment me. So I drag him along, thinking he'll just get a quick leadline ride and be done with him. OH NO... Sure ride double with him they say, I was MIFFED.
So we get going around their nice yard/lot and two of the horses on the exercise start fighting and trying to get free. The horse we were riding got tickled and started trotting, I start pulling him up but stupid brother started screaming and clutching at me pinning my arms to my sides! So here we go! Horse got further excited and broke into a canter. No big deal I remember thinking. I can ride this sob. So I start elbowing my brother to let go as we are speeding up, he starts slipping... we are almost into a gallop and my brother is hanging on to the fenders of the saddle, his body flopping around on the horses rump.
I start to pull the horse up now that I'm no longer HINDERED! But we are close to a barn... So I set in and swung the horse to the left, sliding to a stop. My brother lost his grip and flew head first into the barn! Mission accomplished.

Of course I was blamed for the entire ordeal. Did I get praise for handling that 17hh OTTB? Stopping a bolt and staying astride that mammoth AT 9 YEARS OLD, oh and I was in an adult saddle with no stirrups? Oh no! I was evil.
The worst part, besides getting the tar beat out of me, was that because of liability reasons I rarely got to go back. Not my fault they made me ride double! Totally unfair.

When my friend - the good Christian girl let out a big fart and the sound scared her mare she bolted down the side of the road. Took her a long time to stop her.

Then there was the time she put these odd orange saddle bags on her horse for the first time. The first time we trotted her horse took off and the faster she went the more they banged her sides making her go even faster. That was quite a sight.

Ahhh I miss riding with her lol

My mom's ex-boyfriend was a polo player and told us of his ex-wife's genius idea....

She was holding a horse at a polo comp and decided she would be oh-so-smart and tie the horse's lead rope in a double-knot around her waist. Well, horse spooked and took off, dragging her back to the barn. Smart woman, right?

Suppose since I've managed to entertain myself with all of yours, I had best add one for myself :)

For those of you unfamiliar with TB sales; we are asked by prospective buyers to walk and trot the horses while they watch them. Anyway, I was there with a well bred 2 year old and one of the Darley boys came up and asked me go outside and trot him up on the grass... all the grass sections are on hills and I live in the land of rain so it was pure slop. On my way back down the hill my horse decided to rear/bolt/act like an idiot and he sends me flat onto my arse. No change of clothes and i had to go through the packed sales ring with a backside covered in mud :( The only bonus over the whole ordeal is that to this day, this particular person recognizes me! haha
