    Once, laid me up for a few months due to an injured foot issue. Boogered me up, but broke nothing. Been dumped or fell off numerous times, I'm too old for that crap now.

    Hmmm... I've only been actually bucked off once maybe twice *knocks on wood* but I've fallen off or been falling on many more times.

    Zero, but then Thoroughbreds are not talented buckers.

    I've only been bucked off once... on a lunge line. XD Was having a lunge lesson on a Shire/Percheron greenie and he started acting up while I had no stirrups or reins and was doing some sort of exercise with my arms. He gave a little crowhop which got me unbalanced and followed through with a buck and I hit the dirt.

    I've never had a horse succeed in throwing me, via bolting, rearing, bucking, etc. I only ever fall off because I do something stupid like try to swing up and on and end up swinging up and over. Or we'll be going along fine and dandy and I just... fall. Pathetic really. But when a horse tries to dislodge me, it turns my butt to glue and I will NOT come off, haha.

    Lets see...lol, well I've been bucked off twice. HUGE powerful SSH mare got stung by a horse fly when going up a really steep hill. I managed to stick with her until we got to the top and out of the trees but I bailed after that because I was losing my seat anyway. Second time was a 16hh+ TWH gelding I was giving a spring tune up. Going along sweet as pie and then WAM all the sudden I was flat on my back in the mud,lol.
    Been thrown out the side door on an unexpected spin, over the shoulder because the mare took off down a hill and screeched to a halt halfway down, managed to land on my butt in front of her with the reins in my hand and her looking down with a very smug self satisfied look on her face. Also sailed through the air because I was stupid and didn't check the girth after someone saddled her for me. Slipped way down when I tried to mount and before I could get off she gave a tremenous crowhop and I landed about 15 ft away,lol.

    Hmmm. Well, I've fallen off at least a few dozen times in my 24 years of riding. Mostly all when I was a dumb kid But to actually be bucked off? Only a couple of times, and all courtesy of my Arab gelding Playboy who knew every trick in the book for getting rid of his riders.

    1. Spooked, spun and bolted at Pony Club camp, leaving me in the dirt (10 years old)
    2. Bolted, bucked several times and launched me back first onto a gate which then catapulted me into the air, where I landed on razor sharp hunks of mud and slashed my back to ribbons (10 years old)
    3. Bolted at the farm while riding him in a halter and finally got his head loose and bucked me off, making me do a somersault through the air and landing back first on a rock which cracked a rib and permenetly damaged my breathing (12 years old)
    4. Bolted around a corner on ice and wiped out, coming down on my leg and destroying my left foot with a shattered growth plate, leaving me in therapy for several years and permenent damage (13 years old)

    Somewhere into my teenage years, I got better at sticking with him. He dislodged me many more times then those, but those were the 4 bad ones I'll always remember thanks to the crippled body he left me with.
