Gah, I have two

Once I was in a lesson and working on gait transitions. All of a sudden I felt very, very nauseous so I stopped and got off. After sitting down for a while I felt good enough to get back on. I had one foot in the stirrup when I had to run to the corner of the arena and throw up. Thankfully we were outside, but it was still pretty embarrasing to throw up in the middle of a lesson.

Another time, and this was just recently, I was in the stables and had to take a wheelbarrow to where we keep the manure. It's kept in a big container so there was a long plank from the ground up to it, pretty much covered in manure. Well, I was backing my way down when I lost my footing and slipped all the way down. I was pretty much covered in manure, and had a lesson in 25 mins... lovely.

Ok, I'll tell off on myself. So I have an irrational fear of wasps. I was loading my horse on the trailer and there was a red wasp in the front that I guess didn't like it to much and came flying out at me. I took off running, after a few seconds I stood still trying to figure out where it was when I felt the wings flutter, I thought it was on my shirt so I pulled it off (I'm female if you're wondering), but felt it flutter again (on my head), took off making several laps around the truck and trailer before finally going into the garage bathroom to look in the mirror, it was sitting right on the top of my head. I knocked it off and ran like a crazy person. It was only then that I thought to hope no one had seen the show. Thankfully we don't have alot of neighbors.

First reining show. Being the newcomer I was treate like crap. My area is a little bit unfriendly. to add to the humiliation I was riding and showcasing El Gato Dun It, my big dun stud. The pattern required me to run to the end, slide, rollback and run to the ther end and slide again by the gate. I rolled off the first slide and ran o the other end....But when I sat back and said whoa, nothing happened. He kept running. I tried to pull him up with my reins but like any Reiner I had them really loose and I could pull up over my head and never make contact. Please note I had never reined before.

So I frantically pulled back, sat back, and told him firmly WHOA. But Instead of listening he ran right into the fence, and on impact, I flew over the fence. The horse, however, procceeded to rollback off the fence and slide at the other end again.

I learned a lot that day. First, object in motion stays in motion!

I have to use a step to get onto Paul and I accidently overshot myself when getting on him and went over his back and landed on my butt on the otherside. The barn owners daughter and her cousin were there and said that at least i get a "10" for falling so gracefully. I got up, dusted off my jeans, and got back up. Earlier that week, i did the same thing but when I was getting off. I leaned too far over the saddle when i pulled both feet out of the stirrups and fell over the other side. I am a clutz.

flying judge

The hunter/jumper people will love this one. As you know, when your horse gets a call back for a ribbon after a jumping round, you must jog your horse back into the ring for soundness. As a junior rider, I was called back first in a very important class at the Detroit Horse Show many years ago. As I was jogging my horse past the judge, the jump crew was changing the course for the next class. One of them threw a pole near my horse who promptly swung his rear end into the judge. The last thing I saw was this very round gentleman flying through the air into a muddy part of the ring. I went over to him apologizing like crazy but I really wanted the ground to swallow me quickly. I am not sure that I won any ribblons after that from that judge.

Oh dear.

In a jumping lesson at my old barn I had a bit of a malfunction going over the jump, nearly fell off (twice) but caught myself, brought the horse back down to a walk and as we were walking away giggling I slid right off the side and got wedged between horse and wall.
