As you all have read my mom has recently purchased two horses for her and my little sister Aspen! One is really nice and huge and the other one is tiny and pregnant. So you can just imagine what kind of attitude she has:) So to begin my story....My mom and I decided to take a nice relaxing ride together. Here is a picture of us riding. I am on the right and my mom is on the left. Im not suppose to tell but yes my mom was wearing that outfit! Anyways we were riding along and my husband called, as we were talking for a minute he asked what horse I was on. And I said the nice one of coarse and then my mom ( with her rinstone sun glasses and english saddle) said, "I got the lady". Which I made fun of her for saying :) So we are riding along and I decide to take my horse for a little run. My moms horse is a little competitive and out of nowhere here comes my mom!
All right mom! She was doing some pretty neat tricks catching up to me, but then a truck came up behind us and spooked her horse. The horse spooked and after some bucking and spinning my mom was on the ground :( this is the scary part of the story! So I ran over to her and tried to call my husband to come and get her, but of coarse she would no let me. So she laid there for a minute and then got up and said I have to get back on her!! (crazy old horse rules) I was gonna go kill that horse. So I got back on my horse to go and catch hers. After some intense "man from snowy river" riding, I still only had one horse and the other horse had broken one of her reins. (might I add I was pretty impressed with my first time rounding up skills ;) I was all the way across the field now so I decided to go get my mom because she was wounded.I rode up to my mom and said get on the back of my saddle and I will take you to your horse. So I reached down to help her and she got about halfway on and could not get up further because she could not find the stirrup to stand on! :) So she is straddling this horse from the side and we are both laughing to hard to even concentrate. I said, "mom are you on now?" "nope" "How about now?" "nope" Then something starts to happen....from some reason Im getting closer to the ground? So what happened was my little cliffhanger stayed there to long and the saddle gave way! So my mom fell to the ground (again) and I fell on top of her! The saddle is now on the horses belly and he is staring at us like we are crazy! (Im glad he did not run off) So that is where the "DRY" part of the story ends. Here my mom and I are laughing in the dirt unable to get control ourselves. Finally we get up, resaddle the horse and I say, "you get on first and I will climb up in front of you! (good idea) She gets on and I try to climb up. Im up but when I try to lift my leg over the horse I realize I cannot bend my knee that much due to a recent injury. So now the horse starts walking off pretty fast, Im kneeling on the saddle and my mom is hee hawing on the back! :) finally I manage a swing which was very awkward but it got me on! TADA! we are on the horse again. Then out of nowher Aspen comes runing across the feild out of breath and says," are you guys okay?" (yeah why? :) Keep in mind it is harvest in Aberdeen.She said her and the whole field crew had just watched that whole thing and so she ran over to help us! Awesome dont you love and Audience! We looked around and realized every trucker, worker, tractor driver and the cellar crew just watched our whole performance! :) That made us laugh even harder! Well we did survive the whole thing and got both horses back home. My mom ended up with a couple of cuts on her hand and a big bruise, but I cant tell you where (her bum) because she will be embarressed;)
I think from now on we will stick to less exciting activities, although it was a very funny memory! If you are ever looking for a good time just come give "the lady" a try!
