Unfortunately no. Three horses died in the making of The Man From Snowy River, all had to be shot when they broke legs filming that scene. Was my favourite movie as a kid till I got older and found that out!!
As for ditching, never!!! That means they won the round!!! If a horse is going to get me off they had better be prepared to buck, rear, crowhop, pigroot, and bolt off into the sunset cos I will do my best to stick to that saddle no matter what.
