Yikes!!...Moments....

So, I didn't see a thread exactly like this yet so far. Have you ever had one of those moments where you wish you hadn't gone riding in public? I have had two :)

First, at a barrel race a few years ago...coming around the backside of the third, my mare tripped. So I went a little bit forward (not too much I'd thought!!) And she came outta that barrel something fierce!!!! Just my luck, my bra hooks onto my saddle horn (AAHHH!!) And before I could unhook it, she lunges out and my bra snaps right in half!!! Talk about an awkward run home!!!

Second, (typical) I had a tiny rip near the back pocket of my jeans. I was riding my friends stud, and she was the only one home. Went to swing my leg in the stirrup and heard my pants tear just a little. Didn't care, no one was really around. After the stud, I got on my mare. This time, my pants ripped A LOT more. But thought (oh my butts in the saddle, no one will see) Idiot huh ;) Again, my luck would have it that her husband came home while I was still riding...dismounting and untacking my horse has never been such a task!! Hard to hide your behind, and worse that I didn't realize HOW badly my pants had ripped till I got off my mare

So, am I the only one who has had a terribly embarrassing experience riding in public? Nothing like this EVER happens when your riding alone....I know I can't be the only one!!!

My saddle slipped under my horses belly once coming around the third barrel at a show. I faceplanted in the mud.

I've had my pants rip too. I am forever scared to wear grannie panties now.

Bahaha!! Than Grannie panties part really got me!! The third (?) time my mare ever had a saddle on, we turned her loose in the arena. (total rookies back then!!!) Didn't cinch it up tight enough, she went tearing across the arena and did a beautiful roll back. Saddle slipped onto her side and she bucked it off!! Broke the Latigo I believe. We fixed it, and put her out on the lunge line. Then I got on her and was ponied around for about 1/2 hour....gosh I had some guts back then!!!! lol

Does the stupidity of a young person count? Let's just say my final words before falling off, blacking out and being trampled by my previous mount was "HEY GUYS! Watch this!!"

This may be a little too much info.

But you asked!

I was in a group riding lesson. We were doing a lesson on the lunge. Four students in the arena. Two would ride on the lunge for a half hour without reins and two would lunge them, then we would switch.

Anyways, I was in tan breeches and I guess it was that time of the month. I glanced down while I was riding and what do you know...I had leaked through >_<

Not sure if anyone noticed. I stopped the horse with my seat and asked for my sweatshirt, which covered everything up. I was so embarrassed I went and got an implant so I wouldn't have a period for another 5 years, and I switched to black breeches immediately!

I have another pants ripped story.

I spent the summer a couple years back at a trail guiding place in Banff. So we deal with lots of people and getting on and off horses all day long. So I go to take this group out and wouldnt you know it there's that dreaded rip sound as I mount up. All I think is oh well I'm going to be sitting on my butt so shouldn't be a big deal. Well there were a couple young kids on the ride and they kept having troubles so eventually I had to get off and halter the ones horse. Get all that done while keeping my butt facing away from everyone was a challenge but I got er done. Go to climb back on my horse and there's RIP, and everyone starts laughing. I had ripped my pants clear up to the waistband! That made for an uncomfortable ride back! Then flashing everyone my purple panties back at the barn while I tried to wrangle up a new pair of jeans!

ha ha So I wear my pants until they are completely and totally shot, (this is probably a huge bit of TMI, so I apologize) I also have a huge disdain for underwear. One time, when I was 17 or 18 or so, I was riding with a big group on a trail ride.. There just happened to be a guy I had a huge crush on riding with us as well.

At one point, we stopped and tied up the horses for lunch.. I was flirting and pulling all the tricks and it was going good. Then when it came time to mount up.. My pants split, from one of the rear pockets (there was already a small hole) to my knees. Everyone got a full view that day. So humiliating! Oh my goodness. ha ha So I pulled some Duct Tape out and taped myself back together and rode the 4 hours back to camp, but I've never lived it down.. ha ha I still get picked on for that! Guess who wears underwear now when riding?
