Maybe I'm stuck with the boring old 5 senses. :)
A trainer once told me "what you're afraid of will usually happen when you're riding". And I found it to be pretty true.
I sure hope its not an ESP sort of thing
I think its more situational. For instance, as I said up there ^^. I rode Saro out yesterday for the first time. She didn't see a rise in the ground, stumbled and went down on both front knees. It was one of those...well I'm going to get laid down on or she is going to stand up. She stood up
I've fallen off once in the last few years, but had hundreds of near misses where I thought 'Oh Crap I'm going off.'
