    I've falled off 3 times. I'll give a little story behind them all :)

    I was 8 and was taking lessons. I was riding this horse Thunder and he was terrified of water. So we were walking or trotting and there was a puddle coming up. I wanted him to go to the rail, but he had another plan. He went left, and I went right, right into the puddle of mud.

    The second time I fell I off, I was riding this pony named Purdy, and we were doing a little jump. For some reason she was afraid of the jump (even though we had just jumped it) and she went right and I went even further right and fell.

    The last time I fell off, I was riding my fiance's gelding, Gem and he, out of the blue, did a huge buck, and I slowly slide off. I caught that one on camera (well most of it)

    There might have been a fall between purdy and Gem, but I can't remember

    I honestly don't remember how many times I've fallen off Not like in the 100's but it has to be over 10. I'm kind of a klutz. I don't just fall off, I fall down a lot. If theres something to trip on I'll find it

    I've fallen of hundreds of time. Most of the times I've fallen off was in one summer job riding problem auction mart horses. Thank goodness I'm pretty good about landing on my feet and have most of the time! I have not fallen off any of my horses so I'm sure my time is coming for them as well..

    I've fallen loads of times... about 20 or 30 times, I'd guess... thankfully, I've never been seriously hurt... just sore!

    Huh.. I have no idea... hundreds, literally... when I got my first mare I fell off at least once everytime I rode her for the first year I owned her. Before that I had been riding for 6 years, and had plenty of falls then. I haven't had any lately though! (knock on wood)

    8 ish, 1st one I was trotting and was going to turn down the center line and the lesson horse bolted round the corner and I feel. Another time I was trotting without stirups and at that time I wasnt to confident and I would pull up my legs and I slid off lol, this was when I was had just started about 6 years ago. I then had a few falls in one lesson and we were doing three jumps (one after the other, forgot what its called ) and the lesson horse kept running out of the jump or stopping in front of it. I kept falling onto the jump, it was my fault, and by the end the horse and I had lost confidence.
