Hi everyone! Let's all post up pictures/videos/stories about our funniest or most embarassing riding fail! I think we all need a good laugh, and heres one just waiting to come up!
Here's mine, I don't have a video(sorry)
We're doing a trotting (not jumping) excersise over some cavaletti. My lesson horse trots obediently towards the cavaletti and then, even more obedeintly, nicely tucks up her legs and does a neat series of jumps down the line. Of course, I didn't know how to jump back then, so I cling onto my horse's mane and shout "Whoa, woah!" after the jump, I feel so amazed that I actually "jumped" that I pat my jumper pony and say to anyone who comes near, " Now I know why they call her a jumper!" As if it is the funniest thing in the world.
Yep, that one was worthy of a whole row of 'em.
