When I was in my late teens early twenties I worked on cattle stations contract mustering. This one day it was decided that we would go and bring some horses in and use them instead of bikes.
The horses were young and had very little handling, being broken in as two year olds, ridden for a few weeks and than bushed again. The mare that I was told to ride for the day was this gorgeous pure black Australian stock horse 4yr old. I had ridden her a couple of times previously and really liked her, although I had found out that she liked to test you out! This mare could buck, and not like the little roots from the pony camp horses that I grew up on!
Anyways we had a reasonably good morning and were getting close to the yards with the cattle when the station owner (the man paying me!!) drove up to check our progress. A few old cows were breaking from the mob as another lady and I (the owner of the horse) were talking to the man so I cantered off to go retrieve them.
Well didn't this mare put on a show lol she dropped her head and let loose, all four feet off the ground! Needless to say I got dumped rite in front of the very two people that really shouldn't have seen it and the mare just stood there waiting for me to get back on, I'm sure she was laughing at me too!
