How many riders does it take to change a lightbulb?

In “light” of the idea of lolhorses, I was surfing the ‘net for horse humor.

This one made me chuckle. Here’s an excerpt, but you can read the rest on

You must instill respect in the light bulb, so that it sees you as the Alpha light bulb, using “light bulb dynamics” (video set available for $179.00 on my Web site). Once you have done this, you will find that there is really no need to change the light bulb at all, but that the light bulb will, with very little coaxing from you (using patented “light bulb coaxer” designed by me–$99.00 each, for extra $49.99 you get an introductory video thrown in), behave as all good light bulbs should.

Wuss! As soon as my arm is out of this sling broken after falling off at that stone wall while riding Hell Bent for Leather cross-country, I’ll change it. Until then, deal with the dark. It’ll put hair on your chest. Only dressage riders require lights, anyway.

Well, I’m waiting for my trainer to tell me exactly how but he’s changing light bulbs somewhere else right now.

Then, there’s an equally funny take on the subject at the blog Bridlepath: how many horses does it take to change a light bulb? Make sure you visit the site to read the whole list!

Thoroughbred: Who ME?? Do WHAT? I’m scared of light bulbs! I’m outta here!

Arabian: I changed it an hour ago… C’mon you guys – catch up!

Quarter Horse: Put all the bulbs in a pen and tell me which one you want.

Standardbred: Oh for Pete’s Sake, give me the damn bulb and let’s be done with it.

Shetland: Give it to me. I’ll kill it and we won’t have to worry about it anymore.

Friesian: I would, but I can’t see where I’m going from behind all this mane.
