    First fall!

    So, I have been taking lessons since October, and I had my first fall yesterday! I am quite happy to have it out of the way seeing as it was inevitable!
    Some of you have posted that your horses have Spring Fever....well, I think Fella does too! He was being a pure idiot yesterday in the arena. Anytime I put the slightest bit of pressure on the bit especially when half-halting him, he would jump to the side. I stayed on the first five times, but the last time I went left when he went right!
    I had three people watching, one said my fall looked very graceful, the other two said it looked like I landed on my feet (which I didn't by the way)!

    I love falling off, its the fastest way to dismount.

    I often wonder If I spend more time sitting in the dirt wondering how I fell off than I do actually riding my horse. After a while your butt almost becomes calloused to falling. I don't mind falling off because then I get to practice mounting again. :roll:

    I was always taught your not a true cowgirl until you fall off.

    Falling can sometimes be fun...espically for a good laugh! My god - I have a few falls on video (not all of me) and they all are so funny.

    I was taught that you aren't an experienced rider till you have fallen off 100 times lol
