    Perfectly said! I have stayed on when I shouldn't have, and was forcefully taught that if you're going to go anyway it's better to go under some semblance of control than fly through the air with arms and legs windmilling and watching the dirt rush for your face in slow-mo,lol.

    Haha ohh dear, did you get the feeling of "that's a long way down" ?
    I did when I come off Mitchell, my thoughts were "why did I buy such big horse, and man that's a long way"... THUD

    LOL haven't we all at one time? I used to feel that way everytime I was on the mounting block and had to get on ! And a lot of times on the "almost-falls"! I also love it when I critique the place I think I'm going to fall, have you ever done that? XD

    I think the mahority of us would have, its only now that I have a bigger horse that I have time to think before I eat dirt.

    Yes I've done that too, happened to be a nice soft-looking (boy was I wrong) green patch of grass, that had a nice big fresh pile of manure in the middle which is exactly where I landed *HeadDesk.
    So needless to say I got back on that horse covered in his own manure.
