    I was around 14, I was jumping an arab called Peppy. He cantered towards the jump, and decided to stop. I fell straight onto his neck and while I was in the air he changed his mind and decided to jump anyway - while I was sitting on his neck! I got over the jump alright and right after it he decided to stop again and give a big shake. There was no hope, and I ended up falling onto the ground and hurting my wrist. Quite funny that they shake was what got me off! I miss Peppy though, he was an always will be one of my favourite horses.

    I was on my gelding bareback and wanted to lope/canter so bad! I finally got the courage pu and off we went. I started laughing and looking around to see if my mom was watching and kaput; there I was on the ground. It happened so fast that the next thing I knew I was on my rump. I was 8years old.my gelding was 15.3hh. I hopped right back on( with the aid of a fence) and rode off again. been hooked ever since!!!

    It was only a year ago I was riding a grey pony named Prince around the arena and then he stopped and started going onto his knees [I had no idea] and then I heard people saying jump off so that's what I did XP He was sick of working so he was going to lay down for a few minutes. I didnt end up getting back on, but I should have!

    Wow..I'm trying to remember my first fall.. I've only fallen like 9 times or something like that...but jeesh. I believe it was the time we were riding through the field and Hunter just took off on a bucking spree for no obvious reason. He must have gotten stung or something...He wouldn't let me get back on after that..every time I tried he took off bucking..little bugger!

    My first fall occurred when the school horse I was riding decided he wanted to join his buddies out in a pasture next to the riding ring. He lept from a standstill and jumped the fence out of the arena. I fell off and into a pile of horse poop! My instructor couldn't believe her eyes!
    Since then I've fallen off more times than I can count.
    They say you have to count back from 100 to be a good rider. I must be darn close to being a good rider!!!

    My last fall happened this past spring. I was schooling a new mare that hadn't been ridden in the past few years. I was out in my field a few days after my neighbor hayed it and there was this clump of hay laying on the ground that I couldn't figure out why it was there and not rolled.

    I brought the mare close to take a look and at the last moment I remembered. The mare saw the turkey fly up about a moment before I did. A buddy of mine who was watching said it looked like a cartoon - one moment I was on the horse and the next I was suspended in mid air with no horse under me. Thank goodness for a soft, freshly cut field.

    The turkey was sitting on a nest and my neighbor cut around it.

    My first fall was when I was 6ish. I was hacking out with my mum across the common and didn't notice a small ditch. My pony thought it was a big ditch and took a monster leap (it felt like it at the time)... leaving me behind!
    I've been lucky with falls as the worst I've had is a nosebleed - touch wood!

    Green Broke
    Mine was over the summer at my sis in laws house for a birthday bbq and I was riding her mare bareback. We came trotting up the field towards my boyfriend who was taking pictures and such and waving, I was distracted and woosh! I slid off and around the horses neck, when we stopped it looked like I was giving her a big hug lol.

    The second time was when I was feeling frisky, ignored my gelding's body language of pinned ears ect., and got on bareback (he's not broke yet) and he didn't quite know what to do and did a rear about 1 foot off the ground slowly and I slowly slid off onto my butt lol. Ya I know.....stupid.
