I was talking to my boyfriend and father the other day and neither of them are super big into horses. They wanted to know why I was - as if it isn't obvious!
They did raise some good points though.
My dad said, "You've been bucked off, flung off, kicked, bitten, stepped on, rolled on, and trampled by them. HOW can you still like them after all they've done to you?"
The answer, of course, is: I just do.
Then my dad wished my boyfriend luck with "this crazy"
I thought it might be fun to share some of our horsemanship blunders as I like to call them. Were you ever just in the wrong place at the wrong time? Any embarrassing/exciting stories to share?
My "flung off" adventure happened when I was trying to calm a horse down by holding onto its halter and talking to it and it was bit by a horsefly and flung its head and I went along for the ride lol landed on my butt in the dirt behind the horse. Both of us were very confused by what just happened. The horse literally flung me off its face
Oh, and it should be noted, these adventures all occurred with different horses over the years I've been riding. They've gotten less common, thank goodness!
So share your stories
