Question How many times have you fallen?

I was just wondering how many times everyone has fallen comparing to there years on horseback and what discaplines they do. In my 9 years I have done a lot of casual english and western riding, lots of trails for fun, some hunter shows and now I'm really focusing on barrel racing. I have fallen 7 times this year (3 times in one day) and its usually about 5 times a year. Am I just a failure of a rider or do other people fall around this amount or more?

More than I can count, and once, learning to ride racehorses, three times in one day.

The real question to ask about falls is "Did you get up any smarter than when you went down?"

I've ridden about 7 years. I have fallen off twice, once of my first horse and once of my current. Both falls were spooks during a clinic with the same clinician (although the falls were about a year apart), it's like a clinic curse.

I stopped counting a long time ago ! Haha

After not having fallen for nearly 3yrs, I fell off 3 times in 2009 !

My falls per year depend on how many breakers we have for the year.

I have been riding for seven years and have only fallen off once almost four years ago. Lucky, huh? -knocks on wood- I have however, also been kicked square in the chest and knocked on my butt (it was a baby, so no damage) and nearly bucked off just last month.

I've fallen more times than I can count. Mostly silly things - Just being a kid and mucking around. A few jumping. I haven't fallen in the last year or so, except for once jumping.

I'm now venturing into breaking - so it will probably multiply!

Of my 14 years of riding I really didnt start falling off horses up until 5 years ago. I can't even count!! I train horses for a western events -no english disc.- but there mostly when we go swimming. I manage to fall off my horse in a foot of water!! ALWAYS!! Lol. In Aug. I fell off a horse that was spooked by going up hills but this one was barely a hill *like a 5 degree hill* and started rearing and bucking like a mad man. I landed on my shoulder, knocking the wind out of me but I was good!!!
