‘Oh Crap’ Monday: Learning to Fly…

… but I ain’t got wings.

Monday already is the crappiest day of the week, so it only makes sense that we make things official. Here’s our latest “oh crap” moment.

Today’s “oh crap” moment comes from my own library. Engaged in an unanticipated dismount this weekend on the first stage of the shoot. First time I’ve eaten dirt in a run and the first time I’ve come off my mare in the seven years I’ve owned her. So, that sucked, but likely was bound to happen. Sigh…

I’ve always wondered what my horse would do when I came off. Guess that question has been answered: leave me in the dirt and trot away.

And, yes. We’re both JUST FINE and I totally know I got too far forward and stopped driving and riding. On the upside, I have good friends, a good sense of humor (once I could catch my breath), and the ability to climb back on and ride another day. Day two went better.

The best part of this video is actually lost due to adding a soundtrack. At the end, my friend videoing points out, “I’m a good friend, I’m still videoing.” 🤣🤣

Go forth and tackle your Monday, Horse Nation.
