    One rider had galloped through a town leading another horse. The second horse's rider jumped off a balcony onto the horse. Looked good.
    This made me laugh out loud :)

    Haha these stories are great! A couple years ago I was at a barn with a little 13 hand pony and snow that went up to our waists. We would take the pony out to the back pasture and gallop around till we had sufficent speed, then jump off into the snow!

    I am glad I am not the only one! I was kinda like um yeah I am not going to tell every one about the time when I broke my toes (3 of them) because I was throwing there grain.Yes they eat outside so I just had to throw it in the bucket but noo I had to drop it on the other side.So yeah know my horse it like on no shoes on guy look I am going to make her cry.i could not ride for a week or so.Or the times I hoped on my horse in the feild no saddle no shoes no bridle but of course he takes of at a really fast trot I swar I thought I was going to fall and kill myself.<-- this happen more than one and you think I would have learnd.Nope.Or galloping with out a helment on a crazy pony.i rode backward and "sidesaddle".When I was really little I rember playing "horse"with my friends in the barn and drinking out of the horse buckets.Then it was no big deal now I wonder what kinda of think got in my body from that eww lol I would not trad it for the world tho

    Me and a friend would play in her barn at night. The stalls all had holes where you could toss hay into each stall through the holes. We would take turns jumping down through the holes and seeing who could land on her old horses back.

    Same friend had a neighbor who raised racehorses. She had a track built and we would wait till 2 in the morning when everyone was asleep, and would race the horses around the track in the dark.

    Me and a boy who I had a.crush on when I was a teenager taught the horses how to rear. We would take off across the arena full speed, pull the horses up and make them rear in unison.

    I thought it would be fun to pretend the horses in the pasture were cows, and would try to round them up like cattle on horseback. A good swift shod kick to my shin stopped that.

    If I only knew.then what I knew now. I am proud to say I am a much better horsewoman these days.

    The mental image of a child attempting to Roman ride had me rolling! The only dumb equine stunt I've ever pulled was trying to ride a donkey bareback with a halter and lead rope reins, and I was in no way a child at the time. Lets just say the donkey was not amused, but fortunately it was a short drop to the ground.

    A lot of these made me laugh! I am also guilty of many stupid horse related things lol.

    Riding my not even green broke gelding bareback with just a halter and lead rope when my parents were not home.
    Riding my mare without any tack in the pasture
    Running around barefoot and bareback on a spooky horse that likes to play rodeo.
    Not believeing my cousin's friend when he told me not to say buck or giddyup when riding his horse... lets just say Banjo knows a few bad tricks that result in eating dirt. :/
    Never wearing a helmet when riding.
    And racing like most everyone else does. ;)

    I've done both and still ride bareback in halter and lead rope!

    Probably riding double on a horse that did not respond well and would buck. There was another double rider in front and they took off cantering, my horse bolted and bucked. I was sitting on the POMMEL of the english saddle.. And both my friend and I fell off.
