Ever get that feeling....

Did you ever get that feeling where you just knew you were due to fall but just didn't know when it would come? I have this foreboding feeling that this new horse is going to toss me or try his hardest to the first time I get on him. LOL I'm not worried about it, I've fallen before and I'll fall plenty more times in my lifetime. Fear is just a state of mind. Just curious if anyone else ever gets this "sixth sense" about falling off.

I'm in the middle of saddle/trail breaking a pair of fillies so yeah, I know that feeling
I took Saro out on the trails for the first time today. She has never been outside of our home pasture and dry lot more than 100 yards.
There were a few times I thought I was going to get dumped but guess its not today.

Ohh yes. Def. Have had this feeling before!
When I rode my friends T.W. For the first time. The horse only had one thing on his mind from the start, and that was just to go go go !!!

She took off with me on her, and took a sharp turn, and there I went. Hahaha

Yeah, I definitely get that feeling. Mostly it happens about two seconds before I fall off, when time slows down and I think "I should've known this was going to happen!" Oh, yes. Or sometimes I'll mount up and think 'I don't think this is going to go well today.' I think it's just a sense that people get after riding for a while. You can sort of predict what will happen, whether it'll happen that day or months from then! =)

I don't think I've ever gotten that feeling! I'm not saying I don't fall off! I just never have a feeling about it before hand. I have started working with a horse and thought, "ooh, this is going to be an interesting ride. I wonder what will happen...." But yeah, can't say I have! 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.

Yeah I have, although sometimes it kicks in a little to late and I'm already on the ground.

Yeah, the last time I got it was when my horse took off down a steep hill after I had just got on. I knew it wasn't going to end well, and it didn't

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.'

Vida - I had the same thing happen to me once with my QH mare. She tripped and went down on her front knees, we were right on the edge of a huge drop into an empty pond too. Thank goodness she was able to right herself with me still on her. I was so afraid of falling into that empty pond - it was a long way down.

I have had that feeling before. Riding a friends horses around her pasture, I was riding a younger one that was a little 'hyper'. I am an experienced rider, shown in hunter/jumper etc....but I just had this feeling my ride was going to end badly, with me being hurt. I asked my hubby to switch horses with me, and he did. I instantly felt more at ease being on the other horse!
