Honestly I see so many people who mess up and run and take it out on their horse. Just get over it and get on with your life it's not the end of the world hahaha lighten up
I am the only person at my shows who if I kill a run I come out with a smile. I've had so many people comment on that. One lady was like "Wow I don't know how you can mess up so bad and still smile about it." My reply was "Because I don't need a clean run to have fun. I don't need a ribbon I just want to ride my horse." She looked at me like I was nuts haha. It's sad how many times I get asked that though "How do you mess up so bad and still smile/laugh about it?" ~shrug~ I just do.
In this clip you can see TBird and I TERRIBLY botch a run and I come running out laughing. No critique. I hope my terrible run gives you as many giggles as it gave me =)
Feel free to share your botched run with a smile stories or clips or even pictures!
