    Like my mom always told me, hope for the best but expect the worst. Moral...Be prepared.
    I added a grab/bucking strap to my western saddle the first time I rode my fillies. I was hoping they wouldn't throw me but I was prepared if they did.
    Amen! Every now and again I get this feeling, kind of like waiting for an earthquake, "The Big One." Usually when I haven't fallen off for a while. I know it's going to happen again. Of course, the first time I rode my newest horse at home, I insisted on trying him in the English saddle. I knew that he hadn't cantered enough to not give a little buck when the girth got him at the new gait, so I just intended to walk and trot. Yeah. He slid into a canter, a little excited, and bucked once, not big, just "ooh! Girth!" I bit the dust and had a sore shoulder for a week. That time I never thought of falling off, so maybe my sixth sense is on the fritz . I always wear a helmet, and I took a western curb strap and looped it through the dee rings on the pommel of my all purpose saddle, just in case!

    It's been 5 or more years since I've come off a horse and I feel very much overdue.
    I guess maybe the kick was make-up for it?

    Well I guess I was about due! My horse spooked at something and spun on a dime and took off at a gallop. When she spun around, the saddle slipped and as she continued to run away the saddle slipped more and more. Over the shoulder I went. Not hurt, just a little stiff this morning

    I used to fall off once or twice a lesson when I was too inexperienced for the horses my trainer put me on. Now that I'm more experienced, I get scared when I don't fall off for awhile. Then I know I'm due for doooooooozy! I try not to think about it, but generally I no when i'm going to fall, :)
