I had once just started a lesson on this 'on the lazy side' paint horse. We were lazily trotting around and I didn't realize it but he apparently was half asleep. Tripped over his own front foot and went down on his knees and over his shoulder I went. All of a sudden I heard people yelling 'get up get up get up get up!!!!' and I looked up just in time to see the horse rolling over itself TOWARD me. Now THAT was in slow motion!

Well, there was another gelding in the pasture that was trying to get out while we got D (D's our nickname for him) out, so my friend stayed back to lead him away while I got D out. Well, Poison (the other gelding) was not happy to be alone in that field, so he started running along the fence line to catch up with D. D either spooked or wanted to get rid of the stupid human holding on to him with a lead, but he slid his booty over and knocked me down in the dirt. I hit my jaw on the ground, and when I looked up, D had two legs behind me and two in front. I was looking up at his belly! I freaked out, but I was too much in shock to move, plus I didn't want to scare him and make him trample me. Then D decides he wants to go to his stall for some food, so he jumped over me and cantered home. Luckily he missed me. Other then bruises from falling down, I was fine. However, the story isn't over yet. I jumped up and looked at D running. He still had the lead line on, and nearly tripped over it several times running back. Luckily, it finally swung up and got stuck over his neck so he couldn't trip. Next, I panicked because he could run right into someone. I managed to yell 'Look out!' before he got up to where people would be. This had a happy ending, but when it was happening, it was so scary!
omg that was scariest thing i ever saw i almost peed my pants! i was like oh no! she died!!!!!!!

And on the eigth day God said horses shall NOT trot, and the GOOD horses listened!!!!

I think my scariest moment was when I was about 12 I was loping my mare through our hay field with 6 inches of snow (I know, kinda stupid) and she didn't see a gopher mound and tripped over it, landed on her side and on my leg and then got up. I was just worried about her, but she was perfectly fine. I had some bad bruising on my legand was a little shaken up, but nothing major. And my mare was such a good girl, she just got up and stood there and waited for me to get up.

I've spent most my life riding horses...the rest i've just wasted.
