I've had something similar happen to me a few years ago. I was scareeeeed. I was helping move bulls and was loping my horse along the fence line and he must have tripped on something, or stepped in a hole. Who knows? Anyways, yeah he went down, and honestly, I think at the point where I felt we were going down, I dropped my reins and started to kick my feet out of the stirrups. Total instict, because my worse fear is being drug behind a horse by my ankle.
The best thing to do would be give him his head when you feel somthing going awry, and prepare yourself for an emergency dismount (as I call it)
