Horseback Riding

Horseback Riding

PostBy: Pauliewog On: Sun Apr 02, 2017 8:52 pm

Well, I'm at the emergency room. :what: This morning was not good. I decided to go horseback riding , something I haven't done in a while. It turned out to be a big mistake! I got on the horse and started out slowly, but those of you who know me, know that I'm a daredevil, so then we went a little faster; before I knew it, we were going as fast as the horse could go. And when I tried to stop the horse, I couldn't stop him, he must have gotten spooked or something, he was out of control, so I decided to try to jump off the horse, and instead, I fell off, but as I was falling, my foot got caught in the stirrup , so the horse was dragging me. And he wouldn't stop! Every time I screamed at him to stop, the horse went faster ,
Thank goodness the manager at Toys-R-Us came out and unplugged the machine. But he had the nerve to take the rest of my quarters so I wouldn't attempt to ride it again.

While golfing, I accidentally overturned my golf cart.

A very attractive golfer, who lived in a villa on the golf course, heard the noise and called out, "Are you okay?"

"I'm okay thanks," I replied as I pulled myself out of the twisted cart.

She said, "Come up to my villa, rest a while, and I'll help you get the cart up later." I noticed her silky bathrobe was partially open, revealing what appeared to be a very nice figure.

"That's mighty nice of you," I answered, "but I don't think my wife would like it."

"Oh, come on now " she insisted.

She was so pretty, and very, very persuasive.

I was weak.. "Well okay," I finally agreed.

After a couple of Scotch and waters, I thanked her and said, "I feel a lot better now. But I know my wife is going to be really upset. So I'd better go now."

"Don't be silly!" she said with a smile, letting her robe fall slightly more open. "Stay for a while. She won't know anything. By the way, where is she?"







I replied, "Still under the cart, I guess".

I always wanted to ride a horse like the OP's. But never could afford it.

Just another story of rich people's problems.

I had one, the first ride of the year was always a treat. He would try to rub you off against the fence, barn or a tree if he could. If that didn't work, he would just get down and roll. That never failed to get me off him! :D

We had a nice, gentle calm horse who would roll when ever this one girl got on to ride. Come to find out, the girl was using spurs when no one was around.

It was a pretty nice day here today so I decided to take a ride up my buddy Gino's farm.

I spotted he and his brother Sal down by the barn sitting on the fence having a beer. I took a walk down and figured I'd join them.

Now although we grew up together they were both a few years older than me. I asked them why they weren't riding their horses on such a beautiful day and sadly they replied............
Paulie, we had these two mares for going on 12 years now and it's about time we give it up and let them pasture out. We was gonna ride today but for the last two years we can't tell them apart and who's is who's.

Two years ago, Sal suggested we cut a foot of the tail of his so we could tell them apart. Well that was ok for a few months till it grew back.

Last year I figured we could braid up the mane on mine but it loosened up towards the fall and we just don't know who's is whos.

It's a sad thing when the mind goes and I wondered how much longer it would be till I'm in the same boat as my dear friends.

So the three of us sat on the fence just watching them graze and finishe'd off the case of beer.

As I was leaving I turned to Sal and said...........
Why don't you ride the White one and Gino's can ride the Black?
