I to have had more falls than I can count, and amazingly never broken anything other than my tailbone. (don't do that it hurts like hell) My first, the horse hit a divot at a dead run (I was 12 and dind't know what barn sour meant)and I went forward, landing on the saddle horn, then on his neck, then off sideways. He stopped ten feet away and gave me a look like "why did you get off, we aren't home yet" needless to say, getting back on wasn't an option, I wasn't walking home.
My most FUN fall was when a mare I was on dsecided to try side kicking the gelding to her left and I went off to her right, and landed on my feet. Completely not posible, but very cool. They are right though, get back on, no matter how much it hurts, prove to yourself, and the horse that you're not scared, and they can't get away with dumping you. Of course, I don't think the ice cares, but I'd kill it anyway.
Boy isnt that the truth! Holy gravy! I didnt think there was anything any more painful then other broken bones, until you bust a tailbone! Its funny cause when I mushed mine, it was while I was attempting to gain control from a bucking and rearing mare while bareback. I didnt realize that I slid forward, and smooshed other "important" male equipment. I hit the ground, and laid there for a bit.. when I got up with the help of others, I had this sudden urge to puke mega-time. I couldnt figure out why my tail bone caused me to want to throw up.. Well, the pain from my tail bone was so intense, that I didnt realize that my male anotomy had swollen and that's where that urge came from. Took 2 days before my tail throbbed down to a point I could feel the other damaged areas!

We need to create tailbone protectors!!!

Ouch im glad you are ok!! I have sooo many falls its not even funny! My first was when I was jumping, the horse jumped the jump big and I fell off on the other side lol just got dirt in my pants no injuries lol. Altho I second not breaking the tail bone!!! When I first started leasing horses we kids would have a bareback day, well Andrew was a thin, tall, huge/skinny withers that could make the biggest man cry and on top of that was so bouncy when I tried a sitting trot people yell at me to stop posting:roll: lol. Well I made it through trotting both ways and cantering even if I was bouncing 10 feet in the air! I asked him to stop, we were done and he broke into a really fast trot.....needless to say I fell off, first bouncing 20 feet in the air then landing on my bum. God that hurt for like 4-5 months!!!

Last Saturday, my TB rose,twisted and tossed me (this distance according to witness) approx 10' I think that's a new record for me, and I have 12" bruise on my hip to remember it by...
Sore/swollen but I am back...

You aren't a real rider untill you come off, so congrats!

My first fall, it was my first time cantering indoors, and I was flopping all over the place. The poor pony thought I was kicking her so she started galloping around the ring. I stayed on 4 times around then smashed into the wall (ouch).

It happens... you will probably get better soon! Don't feel bad, everyone falls. Although, in the mean-time, you probably won't be able to ride so that's a bit of a bummer.

Aw, I'm sorry.

A couple months ago, I had my first lesson in nearly a year. I was so sore all over after I finished, as soon as I dismounted, I fell over on my butt. XD It was definitely not one of my most graceful moments.
