So, I pray for a good long break (poor choice of wording there) as my new partner is 17+hands...Loong way down.....

You sound like me! LOL
Last time I was tossed I broke 3 bones in my back! My horse bolted up the hill, I had her head pulled into my left foot and she was still going full bore and I ended up coming off. If felt like she was bucking but I really think its because I was trying to pull her up and she got so rough/bouncy that I ended up on the ground.
Luckily they were only the "spurs" on the spine. Laid me up for a few weeks.
