All I can say is eeek to some of the posts above
Hahaha horse riders are crazy people
A couple more of mine, not to horrible but spooky enough situation
I was out riding Banjo and leading/ ponying Foxy. They descided to spaz as this big black tarp/plasic thing in the bushes :roll: That was easy enough to control as I new it was there and I new they were most likely to get a fright. And so I crossed the road to go right around it. The bad thing is I had to walk along the side of the street with houses on it
which I hate doing.
And sure enough a huge black dog came running out barking. It was a bloody solid thing...some cross bred. Dragging a chain , so obviously was supposed to be tied up. I yelled at it as it ran up, which stopped it, but only for a moment. It turned for Banjos back end :( Started snarling and snapping at him
, I was still yelling at it, And thank heaven for my wonderfull horse, he stood perfectly still, not even freaking out. Then in one swift movment with his back leg...WHAM. He kicked the dog dead on. It rolled for like over 3 meters or somthing along the road then ran away ..hehe.
I checked Boo once around the corner, and he had a scratch right up on the inside of his hind leg
stupid dog actually bit him, obviously why he kicked it :P .
Kinda funny as he was scared of a bag but when it came to a serious situation straight after he kept his cool
so proud of him that day.
O and another one that got my heart racing......
Foxy the loony started bucking when I was riding him down the hill
and it aint a little hill. Then to my horror as I try to control him the bridle broke
So the nose band started sliding up his face. He stopped half way down, and I jumped off to fix the bridle. Hehe then carried on with my ride, lol. I ended up finding a tiny bit of metal wire half stuck under his horse shoe ( farrier was amazed I even saw it ) which I believe was what cased him to buck. But yea freaked me the hell out at the time :roll:
