I rode a Percheron X mare that wouldn't canter; I got out a dressage whip and I got her cantering nicely, headed back to the gate in her pen, when she STOPPED. Just STOPPED. I was somewhat prepared, I reached down to wrap my arms around her neck (like I had done once when Sam jumped a bush at a gallop and I lurched forward, lol, almost fell that time), but...her neck wasn't there! She stopped, then spun around and took off, just sorta left me there!
I almost fell of gaming once, it was Buck's first time in the Key race; He went right through the poles like a dream, I was so proud, I pushed him into a gallop and he started bucking like a bronc!!! I almost came off, but when I told my mom she said, "Thank goodness you've got a better seat than me!"
Other than that, I've been incredibly lucky not to have fallen off more than a couple of times since I was born!
