I never was able to get those down, cause by the time im going off im in mid air or on the ground. And the only one I remember is grab the neck and slide down so your still hanging on the neck but you can start to place your feet on the ground and I guess start to run on the side of the horse...LMAO isnt that just funny!
I don't really see the point of them I mean if my horse is galloping like in idiot and I have to get off I would just I dunno kick off?

Instead of learning how to fall, learn how to stay in your saddle.

if you can picture a cat flying through the air and landing on their feet then you can picture my "emergency" dismount. Things happen so fast sometimes that there is no reaction time.

When you land aim on facing the horse and running forwards with the horse. If you jump off and don't move forwards, the forward momentum from ebin on the horse will pull you forwards and you'll fall over.

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.

I've never practiced them but had to do one this year. I was "test driving" a mare and when I asked her for a canter, she reared and then started throwing these little bucks. After buck #3, I wanted off and somehow landed on the ground beside her on my feet. It's trippy-I have NO clue how I did it. I've fallen off before, but this was intentional (I think). My guess is that instinct just kicked in and during a buck I threw my feet out of the stirrups and pushes myself away from her.

Ok... I'll try to get it on vid. I'll probably do it on Pistol because, although he's obnoxious, he's bomb proof. He's skinny from last months colic and becuase he's old so if I get the video - no meanie heads... Or... maybe I'll do it on Blue boy.... not sure how he'll react to that.....
