We all make mistakes - but it takes a little maturity to admit them and then learn from them. I second farmpony - if you think you are hurt, don't get back on - it could be disasterous. JMO.
Glad you are back riding!

I agree, as long as you have learned from this, that is what counts. Focus, focus, focus on keeping your feet in the proper position on the stirrup!

Yes, please. I would highly suggest getting professional input, as it does look like you get left behind quite a bit, which could have contributed.

I only read a few responses. I'm terrible with all the names of the pieces of tack. But if you flip the little piece of leather up that covers the stirrup leather (where it attaches to the saddle). There is a metal clasp that you push up to keeps the stirrup leather in place. Make sure it is oiled, I personally don't flip mine up, I leave it down. That is made the way it is so that if something like this happens, the entire stirrup, leather and all, will come off and the rider won't get dragged......

I'm glad you and your horse are ok.

Yeah. Wow. I think that was taken on the 25th two months ago? As you can see, everthing died. Yes I do agree my posistion does need work. But it is definitely a lot better then the pic above and my DP. As I've done constent work, and once you've done 5 laps of the jumping posistion around the whole paddock and everytime your feet go threw the stirrups you have to go againm you have learnt your lesson.

I will have to bring my camara out once Chinga is feeling better.

Wow, is this a regular occurance? If you're finding it hard to go 5 laps without your foot going through the stirrup, I'm sorry but you need quite a bit of work.
I would highly highly suggest you get safety stirrups to begin with, then start working with a qualified trainer.
If your feet are going through the stirrups on a regular basis... well that's... dangerous.

I'm not trying to diminish your story. It's great that you got back on, and so on and so forth, still riding, yeah. It's just that... Everyone falls. I had a friend who was riding and the horse flipped over on him, snapping the ball off his shoulder, and had to have it wired on for months. He rode in the NSW MG games team about 6 months later. I've come off, hit my head, fractured my tailbone, bornken my foot, been bucked off onto rocks...

I dunno. It happens. It's great you're still riding and all, but i'm sure most people here would have a similar story.

I agree...i wouldnt be jumping for awhile either, even when you get better, until you can keep those heels way down and only balls of your feet in the stirrups :)

No its not regular, It was but not any more. If I'm having a bad day eg: My feet have gone through my stirrups 3 times then I do five laps, and I "threaten" myself that if my feet go threw I'm doing five more laps.

I would do weekly lessons of jumping but my instructor only does private jumping lessons or jumping days. Planning on doing 3 day eventing training with my instructor in one week - Without the cross country.

As I said before I cannot get the stirrups yet, as my usual tack shop does not have them. So I will have to go to another one.
