I've probably hit the ground about 250 times (one summer of working problems horses was enough for me!) And that falls never get an easier. It's alright when you fall off, but when you get thrown...not so nice

Haha - yes! There's a difference between getting thrown (owee) and falling off. But, face plants aren't as nice, either.

Getting stepped on. Getting knocked off by a tree branch and have your horse decide the water is incredibly inviting on a hot summer day and be soaked while he suddenly plunges in. (My horse did that)

Well I had my new saddle on that day. It was synthetic at least and I Just had to hang it for a few days to dry. The only reason it stunk was because I was looking up the cute little birdies while he drank and then BOING my horse just leaped in.

I am not looking forward to rolling in the water! I think I can handle theb branch, just no H2O!

I have been warned, when they start pawing water, look out!!!
