The first time I fell off I was 5 years old, was on the trail with my riding instructor when her horse spooked, mine took off running right out from under me. I cried a little, brushed myself off, got back on and went home. I was very excited tell my mom that I had fallen and told her, "Mom! I fell off! Not Val, I FELL OFF!!!" with a face like this
As if my riding instructor would have fallen off from a little canter! HAH
The second to the 9th time was off my mare, Alibi. She's a Standardbred, and she paces and trots. Her trot is TERRIBLY bouncy, so I've fallen off of her from trotting around bareback, her popping a wheelie on the trail bareback(after a bath and showsheen), her refusing a fence. I jumped, she didn't.
I've also fallen off of this OTTB at my barn. We were in the outdoor, after him not being ridden in almost a year. Part of the fence was down, and a crossrail was in the corner. He POPPED over the crossrail, I lost my blance and he veered right toward the fence. I fell around infront of his neck, and he stopped dead. Like "why re you on the ground and not on my back?"
He's a really a sweetheart<3
