Your Bad Runs.

So, bad me skipped church this morning to ride High Five around seeing as he has been spending his time getting fat and being lazy, lately. As fate will have it, after warming him up and taking him around the barrels a few times, it was possibly the worst ride I have ever had with him. He was just terrible. Even when I was warming him up he started crow hopping, rearing, throwing his head, and just overall not cooperating with me at all. Of course, I haven't rode him in nearly three weeks, so I probably should be kicking myself in the butt. And, God may have been telling me I had better things to do than ride a fresh horse. D:

So, what are some of your bad runs, whether they be practice or competition? Barrels, poles or flags? I may post some more later.

Well, I once ran the barrel pattern BACKWARDS! ugh, so embarrasing. My horse was fesh, I hadn't practised much on the clover pattern, and i went around the left one first, then the right, then went to the right side of the top barrel. I didn't cross over it. Here is a diagram to help you understand better,lol! I just made it right now! UGH! It wont let me attach it. i will try later!

I was running Romeo on the barrel pattern, and we got to the second barrel and he decided he wanted to Run home. So he completely ducked out of the second barrel *Stopped the timer so we got DQ'ed* and was running sideways to go to the gate. We did finish, but didn't get timed because he stopped the timer =/.

This was this years Eskridge labor day rodeo. The arena was extremely sticky and sloppy and we ended up getting a 24 because my gelding couldn't pick his feet up

Heres the video:
