Embarressing Horse Show Moments!
Each and every person who has ever shown has been embarressed one time or another!
My first story is when I first started showing, and I was in a showmanship class with a herd bound horse. It went TERRIBLE! Every forward movement would be a prance with added neighing for his buddy. When we stopped for the judge and set up, he stretched out his neck towards her face and blew all of his snot right into her face! She was very displeased, but I ended the pattern with a smile on my face!
Wow, I'm surprised this is empty. Lol. So I will just post another one of my stories.
Me and my horse did 2-man, two weekends in a row. I was the person at the far end to run back. Little did I know that my horses brakes turned off once his huntseat bit was out and his running bit it. We took off once we got the stick and expecting him to turn on his own when he got to the fence, I kept pushing for more speed. Probably 10 feet before I hit the gate I had that ...oh crap... Moment.. And he slammed into the gate! I had my leg pinned in between the gate, and many people screamed. I was fine. The gate handler was a very, very attractive young man who volunteered. He was as surprised as me when my horse ran into the gate.. He retired from his post before the next show. That's how the first dent got there.
The weekend after we did the same class. I had a new game plan, I had his spurs on so I had something to push him away from the gate. Long story short, it didn't work. He ran into the gate again, where I almost flew over this time. The girl gate handler didnt see me coming and I had to scream at her to move.
Personally, I can not recall any of my own.
A girl I was giving lessons too on my horse had an embarrassing moment though.
It was her first Hunter/Jumper show and I entered her in cross rails... While my mom was taking a video of her and I was waiting on the side lines, we soon discovered when she was posting, you could see a flash of lime green... yup her jodphurs had ripped and her bright lime undies were showing... Poor girl, she came out of the ring, as we told her to get off and cover up she was announced that she had won the class!! What an awkward moment LOL. :shock:
I don't show so don't have many. But I don't show because I've never been successful at it!
My first show was a 4-H one and I had the old, calm, been showing for years horse. But I guess my nerves and her not showing for 3 years prior caused some issues. Waiting to go into the ring she backed up into every single horse. Like shoved them back. Every single horse.
Of course 13 year old me with no adult supervision had no clue what to do so once I quit fighting her she walked happy as a clam back to the trailer.
Second show I ever went to, I was the one with the bucker in every single class. And everyone knew the pony I was riding too and he was not normally a bucker. Never did find out when peeved him so much that day.
And my third and final show. It was just an exposure test for my mare so we only did showmanship. Everything was going awesome asides from me messing up on which side to stand depending on where the judge was.
And then the judge came up to me and my mare. And my mare bite her. Nothing hard, it was more a "hey, give me food" sleeve grab.
Thankfully the judge just laughed and she left me a note saying I should wait until my mare has grown enough to show (my mare was 5 at this time, figured she could handle it haha). The bf was then given crap because he saw it and fessed up that he was still hand feeding her treats behind my back.
Oh my gosh! XD
I had a gelding that always Always ALWAYS pee'd in the lineup after a class...
i will share a humerous series of pictures in response to this thread.
my question is... HOW THE HECK DID I STAY ON?!
"climbing" back into the saddle after literally falling half off when my horse red refused a liverpool at a local jumper show.
