Today I think I fell better than the other times. I guess learning to fall correctly does help.
    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!

    Ouch! Bless your heart! I have a horse that would do those 180's, and unfortunatly I am too soft hearted to get strict and correct these kinds of behavors. I researched around until I found a very affordable trainer with good reviews, and I sent my gelding to her. He's actually there right now, he comes back home in 2 weeks. I've been going once a week and riding him, he is doing so much better!!! I'm completely satisfied with my decision to let someone else fix these issues, and knock on wood no brokn bones or injuries. I have fallen off a horse one time in my life, I was riding bareback and when he did those fancy dance moves I legged over and hopped to the ground! When I was a kid, I was fearless, now in my old age I have become quite a chicken. :P

    I've been bucked off twice. Rode that horse again later but refused to get back on that second horse ever again! Another time my horse refused a jump and I went right over his head and landed on my feet. (lucky) I had to jump off another time when my horse started to roll in the sand on the trail and I got bucked off unto my horse's neck right befor charging up a hill and we cantered up the hill with me on his neck....does that count? LOL These were all different horses. Now I finally have my own horse & I have a really really good trainer! Now that I'm older I'm taking it slower! LOL

    Thank goodness Spice doesn't do the 180s anymore, I don't blame her when I fell off in the fall though.....she didn't know what to do with one horse under her and one kicking her in the head LOL
    I'm 53 now, I do not want to fall off......her and I worked out the 180s the first year I rode her when she was 3, now she settles down if I talk calmly to her and doesn't panic!

    I fell off almost every day the first year that I had my first pony. I was 11 years old. I must not have been very bright to keep getting back on. After the first year, it was a lot harder to get me off. I don't fall off too often now.

    I've fallen off 6 times. And never had one when I didn't get straight back on. I have been riding (properly/ regularly) for about 6 years. My first fall off was 3 yrs ago and I was cantering and lost both my stirrups horse swayed one way I went the other. Then I fell off my old horse jumping. Completely my own fault. Fell off badger when his saddle slipped so much it was under him and my foot was stuck in the stirrup but managed to hold myself up and only my hip got bruised (luckily we have now have a better fitting saddle) fell off pelle will he was having a bucking fit. Fell off chouquette (well slipped off) when I was getting off and body protector got stuck in saddle and I fell and landed on my butt. And then my last fall was off a wee shetland bareback and with only a head collar on wanted to catch up with his friends and when I told him not to trot. The stubborn monkey had a good few bucking and he swayed one way and I slipped off the other

    But yet to have a fall off my new horse. Don't no how long that will last :)

    I am glad you're okay...

    I have fallen a total of 10 times. 6 of those were not with my horse. 4 of them were with Sky when he was NOT mine. I haven't fallen off in 2-3 years. PHEW!

    I'm glad you toughed it out, but man...

    I tend to fall once every three years, this has been the pattern since 2003 lol. My last fall was in December when my Hanoverian mare decided to get a little fresh, threw three massive bucks (she is 17.2hh) and bucked me right off.
