In over 30 years of riding, there have been a few memorable ones... Mostly the early years. I've only been separated from my horse twice in the last 20+ years.

The first was at 8 yrs old on my first pony, 3 days after I got him. He knew voice commands, and I was cantering him on a dirt/gravel road at my Grandparent's farm. My Mom thought he was getting away from me and yelled "WHOA" from across the yard. Yep. He stopped on a dime and left change. I sailed across his head and landed on my right shoulder, breaking my colllarbone. Thanks, Mom!

I've been bucked off green horses, and had a horse rear up and fall over backwards with me, almost falling on top of me... but she fell on the fence and landed right next to me instead.

I was riding one of my Saddlebred show horses next to a wooden rail fence (he was a rail hugger) when my jeans got caught in a split in the old wood rail, pulling me off the horse and suspending me in the air and breaking the board off the fence, spooking my horse. I managed to hang on to him, though! My jeans had to be cut to get me loose from the board, though...

Ive fallen off a couple of times, but the only one I can still vividly remember like it was yesterday, is when I must have been about 4 or 5 at one of my sisters shows. Her friend had the cutest, prettiest, little black and white pony I'd ever seen for sale, so my parents put me on for a test ride. It was a big green field with stone walls and everything was fine for a few mintues until something spooked him. This little pony went what honestly must have been close to 100mph straight towards the wall. He stopped just before it... I didnt, right over his ears! After that apparently according to my parents I refused to ride ponies and would only get on the biggest horses. Maybe thats why I'm so drawn to the draft crosses these days :)
