    Absolutely, they are the ones that make rodeos most unpleasant.

    The horsies brighten it up though!

    Well, my bad accident didn't end up in me getting hurt and it's not too bad.
    The first time I ever rode a horse was on a horse trek while I was on holidays.
    I was told to ride a 2year old named Lofty.(at the time I didn't know that 2 years old is pretty young)
    And so we began the trek and it was quite windy. Lofty kept of prancing and I asked our guide if there was something upsetting him or something. My guide said no and so I kept going. Not 3 minutes later, Lofty bolted down the road with me holding on. I was able to stay on and he seemed to calm down and he returned to the group with the guide. I asked why he had done that and the guide said he didn't usually do that and wouldn't do it again, but I had a nagging feeling it would. About 10 minutes later, he bolted again with me, this time galloping towards a cliffs edge. I didn't know how to slow him down and he felt like he was going to keep going and go over the cliff. I finally got him to slow down and then the guide came cantering over. I begged him to let me get off but he just put a lead rope on the horses bridle and kept on going...
    Yeah, it's not really bad...
    Well, the last is once I was riding a fluffy pony about 11 or 12hh name Prince and we were out in a paddock ride and I was just nudging him to start trotting, when all of a sudden he collapsed. I pulled on the reins and he used that to balance himself...
