So I was afraid that my big fat draft cross would embarrass me at the clinic we rode in this weekend and she did! Please share embarrassing behavior stories and I will share mine first. Went in the arena to walk around at the far end to warm up. She can be sassy when there are other horses coming and going (like, why does that other horse get to leave??) so I was on guard. I suddenly felt her back arch a little and her head dropped. I remember thinking, oh god she's going to buck! But she didn't. She just laid down! Just dropped into the sand. I stepped off her in time to not have my foot smushed, then made her get up. Oh. My. Gawd. The walk back to the mounting block was endless, not to mention the mixed reactions from the people watching! Please to me your horse stories so I can feel some sympathy.
