Ohhhhhhhh... SO now we get the "rest of the story" You were goofin off and got dumped!!!!


Lorien Stable - The Emergency Dismount

This article shows and emergency dismount with an english saddle...( I don't like this for a western saddle...See earlier post about bra getting hung up. :roll:)

What I do if I need off in a hurry is :

look where you're gonna land first...pick a spot....
1) Kick my feet out of the stirups.
2) drop the reins
3) In one big motion-I lean forward put my hands on the pommel and kick my leg back and over the horse-while pushing off with my hands and tuck and roll, IF you are going slow enough you can get those legs to running and maybe keep your balance.....It's not graceful or pretty...I do believe it should be practiced and what I do is just an example *don't follow me...i'm just sayin what I do*

It competely sucked getting my bra hooked...It literally hung me up on a bucking horse. I couldn't stop the horse and I was on a bronc ride...I tried to dismount and my bra slipped under my armpits and was like a lasso around me (sports bra, no hooks to break) I literally had to grab the pommel and pull myself up and loose, I also ended up sliding the saddle off to the side of the horse and was darn lucky to not get stepped on or hung up.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

NO! I didnt get dumped you big meanie head! I BAILED! How do you get dumped by a sweet old tennessee walker? I bailed because his eyesite is no good. I rode him ALL THE WAY to the barn, giggling and laughing until I realized he was going inside the barn and straight to his stall and I was scared for my knees and my head... I bailed right outside the barn... I just didnt land on my feet!

I did an emergency dismount off a QH about 20 years ago and did the same thing! My bra and shirt got caught on the saddle horn, I popped the buttons, head butted the horse AND ripped my penny loafer! Should have just let the witch dump me....I know how to fall! I land on my big fat cushy butt and then cry for weeks because I almost always find a rock to land on and end up with a gorgous bruise worth bragging over that can't be show to anyone!

Notice how they do not actually show that chick land? Cus I betcha she lands on her feet and ends up on her knees.... Did you see the "how hard do you land" portion? that was neat... I would land at a force of 240lbs... If I did it right...

LMAO... You got dumped. That crafty ol man KNEW you would get off of him if he headed to the barn... it was all premeditated when he saw the look in your eye that said...I'm gonna ride you! *pokes Jen with stick and giggles*

Ya know... Sometimes I'd rather get thrown than bail. I dunno... It's good to know what to do. I'd rather just not do it at all. I want to get on and off on my own power.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

That gal in the purdy pictures makes that look so easy. I suppose I should practice it but I think I'll just never get myself in the situation that I need to bail off my horse. Its to easy to fall off accidental to try and do it on purpose
I would probably get my belly caught on the saddle horn and just spin around like a pig on a spit.

....I gotta admit.... it was pretty comical.... and then the old man turned around and snorted at me! Almost like he was saying... "showed you - I still got it you dumb girl!"

my old 4-H leader put it this way emergency dismount is for if you know you cant stay on we have to do them as part of horsmanship skills the big problem she has always had is getting the horse to keep moving when the rider is coming off they want to see that for the test but really you would want the horse to stop if your falling off

On the first day god created horses on the second day he painted the good ones

I bailed once but didn't manage to tuck or roll. I landed on my side and had a set of VERY bruised ribs to show for it. Horse still laughing!


The hardest thing about riding is the ground.

I never practice them. Because usually my emergency dismount is a front-flip over my horse's head. I have basically mastered the art of falling off a bucking horse quite well, and I'm rather confident in my landing skills, so I don't usually emergency dismount... I also try to ride the buck as long as possible because usually people are watching and whenever you stay on you look cool... And around here if you emergency dismount you get made fun of.:roll:
