...have no idea how many times I've taken a spill...

Falls range from slipping off while texting bareback, to cracking my head and having amnesia for an hour, to breaking my arm, to getting bucked off with a bear on the trail... :P

Horse whisperers don't whisper to the horse....they listen to the horses' whispers.

lots...

I used to fall off this welsh pony everytime I rode him, his name was Hanz, he was black, really cute... He bucked me off every lesson... then Pistol came along and I came off everytime I jumped him for a long time..... then the falls got further and fewer between and then... I fell off Beauty last summer, out of nowhere, just cantering and boom, the wicked witch got me off! Then a couple weeks ago that pony reared and bucked and almost fell on me...

I must say... I dread the falls now more than I ever did before... must be an age thing.....

I don't know the exact number. I've fallen off before, lots though. :) Nothing major though. Recently I haven't fallen off much.

Success comes a [bit] at a time.

Same with Dancer.. I fell off at least once per lesson for almost a year. Don't think she was a bucker though... lots and lots of refusals, spooks, and things like that. BLAH!

I fall sometimes when I go to water the horses... :roll:

My hubby refers to me as "grace" lol I have fallen off of horses because of them and because of me. The most recent fall was when I was trying to adjust my stirup... I lost my balance and flop...right on the ground I went. ( it was in an arena full of people and I was able to half way disguise my fall with a half dismount, full twist, tie my shoe and look around method 8) ) I haven't fallen off of either of our new horses yet. I'm sure I will its only a matter of time. I concider a fall about like finding hay in your coat pockets...its always there just waiting for you.

Be strong and courageous, and do the work. Don't be afraid or discouraged by the size of the task, for the Lord God, my God, is with you. He will not fail you or forsake you.

Acually I am not lying that I have only fallen off three times and one of those times I landed on my feet so it was kind of likle an emergency dismount. I think that I have only been sore from them though. Not hurt.
