Remember those younger and much stupider days??

This is one of my "great ideas" years ago..I found it on my laptop this morning and thought "Oh my God, what was I thinking??" This is my ex-stepmom's stud, he is now 24 I think, an OTTB that developed a roaring problem and the previous owner was going to have him PTS until she stepped in and bought him..Awesome horse..and very patient for mine and Sierra's "great ideas"..

Amber and Salem..I think 2007? - YouTube

That is a great video .

Oh, yeah, gotta love those old "great" ideas.

I'v had my share of really dumb ideas, but the only one that I really have proof of is this. This was me and Denny quite a few years ago when I was still really into jumping but didn't know anything about it at all.

Yes, that is a metal pipe tied up to 2 metal t-posts in the middle of the pasture with other horses loose around us...with a halter and lead rope only....and, of course, no helmet

ETA: If he had hung a leg like he almost did here, it would have killed us both .

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog:

Oh, Drum!! LOL! When I was a little kid with a tall horse, that was the only way I could get on him bareback. What was I thinking? I was thinking it was a great idea at the time.

Okay, that's funny. Patient ole' guy, he is! He doesn't even look like he's paying any attention, haha! The little bop at the end is adorable.

But oh, yipes, the field jump! I would totally not be brave enough for that one. ;)

Man does that give me flashbacks! My sister was a teeny thing (still at 30 w/3 kids under 3 she's 4'11" & maybe 90 lbs dripping wet) and when we were kids she rode a 16+ hh mare, she had that old mare drop her nose for a treat and got on that way all the time.

I'm thankful most of my stupid moments weren't caught on video. There's one but it's not digital (thank goodness!) I was in a Showmanship class, couldn't find english boots small enough (I'd outgrown my jods) so I borrowed a pair that was about 3 sizes too mare caught my heel as we were trotting away from the judge and I did an epic face plant....followed by an 8 yr old me cussing loud enough to be caught on tape. Boy did I get it for that one!

Life is like a camera. Focus on what's important, Capture the good times, Develop from the negatives and if things don't work out, Take another shot.

Laugh! It was one of those things that seems really cool when you think it through, thank God Salem is a sweetheart.. I can think a quite a few things that I've done that I'm really glad there are no pictures of! There is a video of me running barrels when I first started and Hickory fakes me out at the second. I fly off of him and take out the barrel with my head and he just leans over and licks me...I was furious! and everyone was laughing..It was probably my fault though.

MHF, that is too funny..I love those kind of stories.
