Once there was this woman riding in a lesson with my mom. She was very green to jumping but they were only doing miniscule cross rails. She was on this silly old mare who jumped the jump like it was 6 feet high! Landed cantering, and the woman lost her balance. She brought the horse back the halt and next thing you hear is "WHOA WHOA WHOA!" as she gently slides off the side. It was like, a whole 15 seconds after the jump after she had regained control and halted the horse! It was so silly. It was almost like she had thrown herself off- but she didn't. We all, including the woman, had a good chuckle.
Then there was my mom, who upon her first ride on a horse ever (I convinced her to start) was dismounting and kind of threw herself and landed on her butt- she was quite unfamiliar with the dismount
