Oh Stan, you made a bet you couldn't make. I'll take your trailer as payment. LOL.

Shuddup!

I have fallen off three times in my life, once at a show, I don't remember if the horse refused a jump, I would guess, as I landed back first onto the jump - I remember the land.

The other time I was a kid, 6 or younger, I don't remember it, but I know it happened.

Last time I remember well, and it was embarrassing. I used to teach at a therapeutic riding barn for disabled kids. As the jumper in the group, I popped a horse over a few jumps as he was there on trial. I had no clue he neck reined, and I am not that. So we did a little jump, I must have knocked my reins slightly as he turned, significantly.

I was on my ass on the ground, wondering wth happened. I got up, but couldn't really, as I ended up on crutches for two weeks.

Stupid western horses. I had no idea they even existed. Owner opted to keep the horse.

Worst part, kids play baseball next to the outdoor. As Mom's are bored they walk out and all watched me get dumped. They shreaked. Please don't do that, I am fine, even when I am not, you can all look away now.

So three times, what you got????

My claim to fame.
The saddle on my first horse 17.2 clyde TB cross baby. A cheep saddle western, made in india slipped around the horse just as I had placed myself down in the seat. I ended up riding upside down.

I was very lucky Savannah just stood still while I was being untangled from the stirrups. If she had of panicked she would have killed me. That is why I have such large stirrups.

Same horse, same saddle, she went balistic and as her determination to remove me increased I decided it was time to leave. We were at a full height buck when I pulled the ejector cord and left the saddle. It was a long way down. But I did manage the 8 seconds required.

Same horse different saddle came up to a creek while waiting for the horses infront to cross Savannah decided she wanted to join the horses that had already crossed. While walkig in circles she turned and jumped the creek. I followed a second behind landing in the saddle. You thought I had fallen off but this time NO.

Cheep saddle had a fibreglass tree and it had split enabling it to flatten and slipping around the horse. It was also the cause of her bucking when it finally gave out and clamped on her withers, and as my weight was added she went balistic.

Now I use breast straps, rear girth strap and crupper. And of course that bloody great handle.
I win the trailer is still mine.

TJ, glad you were able to work it out for poop paid lessons and can't wait to see pics of you in the saddle.

Roseann, welcome and great pics of your trails. Can't wait to get to know you better and hear more about your neck of the country.

NM71, very pleased to hear your mic time went so well. Looks like you really enjoyed the trip and am pretty sure you made a couple guy's evening brighter with your light flirt and conversation. The boots look great.

Stan, love those pics of the trails and the stories. I have only fallen off one horse and it was the first time riding a new horse bareback. I had not gotten all the way set down when my buddy smacked it on the buttocks. I leaned forward to throw myself up into the correct position about the time she decided to release her back pressure. I ended up doing a front flip and landing on my feet and missed having hooves for lunch by about 4 inches when she bucked at me.


Alex my dearest yank. I'm not stupid darlin, ignorant sometimes, but not stupid..lol You should try some bologna, I hear it makes some woman horny.

















Who will recognize that comment?

Good morning all! Just a few minutes before we head out to present again.

Alex, I was asked to come down here to talk about my recently published book to teachers!!

Purely through conversation, I think I might have earned myself another gig down here!! this one on my own merit, not bc my coauthor was invited! That's a big deal!! You see my coauthor is a big, well known presenter...I'm here bc he invited me to join in this time bc the book is based around my classroom....but thru convo, I earned some respect all by myself!! That's a big deal to me!!

LT, I did my best in eating that whole dang steak.....we still had an hour car drive after that....not good!!! My belly was NOT happy!

Anyway, the pressure is off me today....I'm here to learn and generate ideas for book two!! I'm officially now on summer vacation!!

Have a good day!

Alex, you should really try it. It comes smothered in white gravy. I like it with mashed potatoes, fried okra, and sweet iced tea. (Lipton)
