Well what got me the most was I rode my mare when I got her at 3yr. And 30 days of riding, I rode her the first 3yrs. With a bareback pad and halter, never once fell off. I should have fallen off then because she was a nervous wreck and would spin to head back if something spooked her but she always stopped. Then everyone got on my case how it was too dangerous to ride with the bareback pad so I got myself a saddle LOL now I've fallen off twice being in a western saddle LOL
I was very proud of Spice's reaction with the horse tripping under her, she handled herself very well!
