Horse dare contest

If you are younger than 18 YEARS OLD like me ASK YOUR GUARDIAN FOR PERMISSION BEFORE DOING THESE DARES.


I am holding a horse dare contest, the dares will be classified into groups.
Any one can participate, and every can make up their own dares.
********Dare Must be in video format******
I need dare suggestions to classify into these groups and than we can begin.

**Warning these are dares, have common sense before you try to do something you and your horse are not ready to do**

Warnings:
. Ride with some one or have some one watch you
. Ride in an enclosed safe Area
. Know your horses limits, and what you can do, go by your instincts if you think something is to to dangerous don't do it


Group 1: Easy dares
Group 2: Medium dares
Group 3: Hard dares
Group 4: Very hard dares

Ok Here are the Dares i have thought of:
Group 1:
. Sit to the trot
. Ride without stirrups
. Wave a piece of long material over your horse (it can not spook)
. Dismout your horse while it is walking
. Ride bareback
. Run with your horse as fast as you can
. Take a video or picture while mounted on your horse
. Ride through a tunnel made out of trot polls
. Canter on a loose rein
. Do 5 trot poles

Group 2:
. Ride your horse bareback in a paddock
. Put your arms up while ridng bareback for over 10 seconds
. Try to Canter to walk as well as you can
. Walk to Canter as well as you can
. Ride your horse through water
. Canter between at least 3 cones/markers
. Rise to the trot bareback
. Do 10 trot poles
. Teach your horse to give you a hug

Group 3:
. Jump of your horse while your horse is in water
. Jump of your horse (probably should be in an enclosed area and be holding a long lead rope connected to your horse, or some one is holding your horse)
. Gallop your horse
. Jump bareback at least 50cm
. Do 20 trot poles
. Canter to walk only 1 stride of trot allowed
. Walk to Canter only 1 stride of trot allowed
. Teach your horse to bow
. Ride your horse with a partner
. Canter between at least 8 cones/markers


Group 4:

. Stand on top of your horse
. Dismount a horse while it is trotting
. Ride tackless in all the gaits (can ride with a piece of rope as a rope gives signals just like our body does.. and where not a piece of tack we r human lol)
. Jump higher than 60 cm bareback
. Ride your horse bridleless
. Ride your horse while dragging something behind it
. Ride your horse bridleless/tackles over a jump
. Ride your horse bridleless/tackless between polls
. Ride your horse tackless in a field or paddock (that would be very dangerous if you didn't have enough experience for that)
. Do a fancy move bridelless (doesn't have to be completely correct horse can show just a couple of seconds of the move)
. Do extended trot bareback
. Have your pet ride your horse (i wouldn't just all of a sudden do this)

It's not on your list but probably would go in your group 4:

In case you can't see it, the horse is blindfolded.

Everyone should be allowed at least one bad habit, and that's NOT owning a horse!

Mares RULE! Geldings drool!

Nope.
It's easy for people to take things out of context and go too far.

That is where this comes in:

**Warning these are dares, have common sense before you try to do something you and your horse are not ready to do**

Warnings:
. Ride with some one or have some one watch you
. Ride in an enclosed safe Area
. Know your horses limits, and what you can do, go by your instincts if you think something is to to dangerous don't do it

A lot of the dare descriptions are not that bad and some are definitely more difficult. Several we do on a regular ride, such as ride without stirrups and take a pic or vid on your horse, and others. It just depends on where your comfort zone is and if you want to push your limit.

The problem is that the sorts of people a post like this will attract are children and most children don't have very much 'common sense' simply because their brains are not fully developed yet. It's all fun and games, literally, until someone gets hurt and while riding itself is a 'dangerous' sport, adding the word dare just gives more room for people to take unnecessary risks.

Agreed, the OP did say to use common sense, but that's not so common anymore.

Totally, but don't you often (daily) see people whose confidence are above their abilities?
