    The idea behind the emergency dismount is to be able to get yourself out of a bad situation w/out getting hurt. The reality of it is... usually when it's a bad situation... it's bad, trees to one side, creak to the other, rock here... rock there... no real safe way to get off... and with me the truth of it is... I'll try to ride something out if I feel like I can, or correct an hornery horse, calm an anxious one and then by the time I realize I can't ride it out... I'm airborne anyway and that's when the proper way to fall comes into play... I'm not sure I have ever actually managed to curl myself into a ball....

    The emergency dismount I did over the summer had me landing flat on my left side... not pretty, looked more like a failed bail....:)....
