Be careful above all else Jen...

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.

Does anyone have suggestions on practicing an emergency dismount? I thought I'd pick the most laid back horse in the barn and start out bareback so I don't have to worry about stirrups and stuff?
can you give me a definition of what you mean by "emergency dismount"? I wouldn't be a good one to give advice




but does anyone have a picture like this one? I didn't think so

I did it on Ri... If you go to my WP critique you can see it at the very end... pretty cheesey though because he was just jogging...

Then I did it on Blue - got that on video too but it's really short... I did get him being a brat, it took me like 5 attempts to get that fatty to canter... If my computer is agreeable I'll post it today......

I'm not sure I've heard of the way you dismount. I'm more of the "tuck and roll" kinda girl. And I, for one, can actually say that I've used it in a real emergency! lol

I think I was twelve years old...being stupid out in the pasture. Me and my friend had put a halter on the miniature mule, Emery, and tied the lead rope to make reins. I got on (I was light enough to get on the poor lil' guy back then) and my friend lead me around at first. Then she let go of the "reins" all of a sudden. I tried to direct Emery for a couple seconds, but then he decided he'd had enough and took off. At first I held on for a few seconds, then looked down at the ground. He's not tall at all, so I just rolled off, did a somersault, and came back up on my feet. It was hilarious at the time...okay, well it's still really funny.

Courage is being scared to death, and still saddlin' up<33

Ah, emergency dismounts. I think they're pretty easy, although I've only done them @ a walk or trot (mostly for practice, or when I'm about to fall off, haha!). I can't explain it...I kinda slide off the saddle quickly, ahha!

Ride more, worry less.

Sounds good. I've never heard this before but now I think I have to learn this.

Our equestrian professor wants us all to know how to "emergency dismount" but in all honestly, if my horse freaks, I'm gonna get off that horse anyway I can. I'm not gonna go through the motions, I'm just getting the heck OFF.

But, I also don't get on horses I think are going to hurt me, and I do not bail. I'm young enough to have the mentality that I gotta stay on no matter what.

I've done an "emergency" dismount once...but it wasn't until AFTER we crossed the time line lol
