Today, I was at a rodeo warming up while my mom unnecessarily bragged about my training skills to a client. My horse then threw me into a gate at a full gallop, in front of everyone. That was the first time he'd ever misbehaved. FML

It could be worse. Could have stomped you after

When you felt embarrassed, your consternation wavered and the horse sensed it. Stay focused and confident. :)

I suppose your horse couldn't take all the pressure.

animals do have a way when it comes to doing the wrong things at the wrong time. I'm guessing your horse has that skill

A possible client, or someone who would want my training or riding services.

Tell it to stop horsing around!

I think one thing all equestrians can agree on is that random things can and will happen, especially at shows where everyone is stressed and excited. I'm sure a simple explanation of what happened will be enough for your client, as these things do happen, and (usually) aren't an indicator of your training abilities. I hope you and your horse are uninjured, and wish you luck at future rodeos!

Your horse was like, "A good trainer, eh? Haha, not today, pal."
