    I had my motorcycle do that to me once.... glad I didn't take the exit route but I sure considered it.

    ETA: Was thinking my current bike. when I rode dirt, I did it a lot... but I was a lot younger and at least as dumb About that angle on dirt I'm thinking "eject eject eject!"
    Nudging "Almost Heaven" a little closer still...

    It's tough to find good minions nowadays. Human ones expect pay and benefits and for your evil lair to be heated, and PETA go absolutely nuts when they see you trying to staple wings onto monkeys.

    Around here, where most work alone, when someone ask how many were working on something, generally the answer is "two, me and myself".

    Mike Just wondered if you were a writer, or a photographer. No bad feelings intended.

    I had that happen in the middle of a warm up ring once. It was the 17h AHHA geldings first show. He walked in to the middle of the ring and just went up. It is possible, when you are in that position to beat your horse about the poll, because you do not need your hands to balance. Your only option is to stay quiet and not upset the balance. You can't get out of the stirrups as they are supporting your weight, and if you put more weight in to one side to take the other out of the stirrup, you are going to unbalance the whole thing. So you stay quiet and don't upset the balance by pulling or panicing. I remember mostly, a lot of open mouths. Horsey just got down and carried on like nothing happened.

    Okay back to the Photo, I remembered why I dumped facebook after reading some idiotic comments.
    That horse looks so huge for her, Do you think the pic is real?

    I think it might be the angles. If you look at some of the other pics in the series he doesn't look nearly as big!
