LOL, don't feel bad, The last horse I fell of didn't even crow-hop...

We picked up some horses out in CA from a rope horse guy that wanted some outside riding done on them. We get them home, a saddle up the filly and we strike a trot from the saddle barn to mash some pairs. Not thinking- but horses not raised on the desert have a hard time moving through sage brush rather than just pushing through it or around it they usually jump it... well one jump to the left, one jump to the right, and another one to the left and I was hanging off the side refusing to completely fall off with my ass about about 4 inches off the ground..made for a good laugh, and good thing the filly was gentle..lol

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

Been there!!

I rode a little paint Doc O'Lena filly for some friends a few years ago and holy cow that girl could move. We were just going along one day and she spooked at something. She was one of those that was short backed and could be booking the other direction before you even realize she spooked. Anyway, she sucked back, spun and started to take off and I, of course, was riding along at a jog with head up anus. Next thing I knew, she was just gone and the only thing that kept me from eating dirt was my spur hung up under the saddle pad .

There I was hanging halfway off her side with one foot in the stirrup shoved up under her belly and the other spur holding the saddle pad for all it was worth and, thankfully, she just stopped, looked at me funny, and then waited while I scrambled back into the saddle.

Funniest thing was that her actions were so uncharacteristic of her breeding. Those VP bred horses (local breeder that bred her momma) are notorious for causing quite the...um....spectacle when things don't go just exactly right.

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

Bah ha! Sneaky ponies!

While we are telling embarrassing stories...

I was riding a three year old that was notorious for just being lazy(you know the ones that bite you in the ass later) Me and another girl were looking for some Charolias steers hiding in some willows. I was sitting half cocked looking backwards off of this colt, you know, a butt cheek off one side and just a toe barely in the stirrup on the other side while looking back...well...some deer jumped out of the willows and he dumped, my foot actually hung in my stirrup, but thank God I ride in boots a little big that don't lace up for this reason, and my boot came off...lol...it was pretty funny actually because the other girl was completely dumbfounded as what happened because it happened so fast as this colt was famous for being a dead head she didn't even see it happen. She turned back around to see him with his head down with grass in his mouth and me laying on the ground laughing looking for my boot.

I DON'T LEAD 'EM AND FEED 'EM, I RIDE 'EM AND SLIDE 'EM.

my theory about those goosy cutter's is,if you can't straddle 'em then don't saddle 'em.

Live each day as if it is your last for tomorrow is not promised!
