    Not me, though I could totally see myself doing that. I once fell flat on my face in a halter class. Thankfully in halter they're only judging the horse, so Stan (my gelding) still came in second.

    Lol. Not me, but this is the exact reason I lunge my horse over jumps and don't try to run with them.

    Give ya a little hint: There was a reason I chose a sport where I would have a well-coordinated animal with four hooves beneath me!

    It ain't me.
    I'd rather ride then run.
    My horse is a "Hare-Brained Controvert".

    Wayside, I'm with you. Once hooked my spurs together and did a major faceplant in the jog following a hunter class. But fortunately it was WAY before video existed and no one filmed those shows!

    FUNNY video - thanks Mike.

    Nah. Not me. I don't do jumps. except on board the horse (mostly). I did almost go down in a western pleasure class in the '60s, though. Tripped on my spurs while walking away from the horse during the ground-tie exercise, but managed to not face plant. The judge was highly entertained.
