Things You're Superstitious about | Blogtober '14

So I show horses... I think I've mentioned this a time or two or twelve....

So my superstitions kind of revolve around that.

1. Never EVER put your cowboy hat on the bed. OMG, that is a total nightmare. My mom once put my dad's hat while it was in the hatbox on the bed and oh goodness.... you just don't do that.

2. Never wear yellow when you're on a horse. When I showed at the AQHYA World Show back in the day, there was a guy who also made the finals. He and his family went to lunch the day of the finals and thought they'd want bubble gum so they put their quarter in the gum machine. It kicked out a yellow gumball. He left it and decided to try his luck again, maybe it wouldn't hit the yellow. The second gumball it kicked out was yellow as well. They decided to just leave so they left both gumballs and walked away. I can tell you he went on to win the show that year....

  1. Those are interesting superstitions! I can't think of any that I have while showing horses..

  2. I knew the hat one, but was unaware of no yellow outfits! Good tip. :)I don't so much have superstitions, but routines that I have to follow...

  3. Interesting! I've never heard of either of those before! Guess you can tell I don't know much about showing horses, eh? haha!

  4. i have never heard these before! very interesting.

  5. So why not hat on the bed and why not wearing yellow?? Explain to me please.
