Well, when you ride horses, falling off every once in a while is inevitable. But working on having a good, solid position
will help a lot. If you feel as though you are going to fall off, make sure you don't lean foward, sit up.
What I always do is if my horse spooks, don't panic because that just makes it worse. If the horse is panicking and you panic along with the horse, you're just showing that there is something to be scared of. Try and stay calm and collected and be there for your horse.
I've had my fair share of falls, but this is basically what I do, and I haven't fallen in awhile (knock on wood!!)
Just remember that even some of the greatest riders fall off, it's completely normal.
