Not since I was a kid. Then bought my own. Then sold them and the 20 acre pasture and barn. Now it's 4 wheels or walking.

I have, but Shirley don't like to. Prefer the feel and sync of an old friend.

My boys and I are fairly active in Ranch Sorting. Made a lot of friends in this sport, and we often trade horses for a bit while at shows. These ain’t your average horses though.

They remind me of blind, enraged oxen being taunted and prodded by the right wing media, frothing and wanting to strike someone, but can't see who's really tormenting them.

I hate it. Every family vacation my dad signs us up for a trail ride. When the wrangler asks who knows how to ride, the others point at me. Last time I ended up with a nag named TKO. This horse would throw it's head back when you asked it to go. Nearly hit me in the face, and I realized that the name stood for technical knock out. After the first time, I whacked it across the face with the reins and made it spin a dozen times. It was OK after that.

The only horses I ever rode were other peoples. Some were awesome. Ben , the mule , sucked, but the boss' wife insisted I put some miles on him. Two broken ribs later, I did! Hurts to this day!

I have, but as others have stated it ain’t anything like the horse you know.

Like women, they’re all at least a lil bit crazy, some much more than others.

But mine was my crazy bitch & after we survived some rodeos early on in our relationship, we learned to get along mostly.

Still had a squabble occasionally, but we got along pretty damn well & put some happy miles behind us.

Gristle, I give you a 7 on your dismounting technique.


You lost points for lack of symmetry as you weren’t busted up on both sides. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Yep.

My great-uncle in Alberta was dragged by a horse more than once.

On one occasion, Great-Unc was being dragged and bouncing along the ground.

He used all five shots from his Colt Peacemaker to "persuade" his horse to stop - and the horse still ran for one or two hundred yards before expiring because of adrenaline.


I rode a horse once that tried to saw my right leg off by running along a barb wire fence, getting closer and closer.

No more horse riding in my future!

You want to piss her off just don’t hold the reins the way she thinks you should. She was easy to PISS OFF

Some are that way.
