Bahahahahh. Lilruffian, the mental image of that is hilarious. But I agree: The one time I fell off was pathetic. I managed to stay on Abby when I asked for a lope (her hip was out, which I found out later..) and she started bucking. I was in a saddle that is technically a kid's saddle. If I stand up in the stirrups (as low as they go), I was probably a good 9 inches above the seat.
I also stayed on her when she bucked in a field and when she'd whip around and bolt back to the fenceline because she's herdbound.
I hadn't thought of these...mini confidence boost!
