When was the first time you fell off?

I had not fallen off in 5 years of riding... Then at my first show I took a face full of dirt. It was rather humiliating!

What about you?!

Hmm, the very first time I hit the dirt, I was 3 and my mini-burro bucked me off. After that, I lost count so now I only count the situations where I was seriously hurt.

My first dive was after a few years of riding, I was bareback and no halter of any kind, and a friend spooked my horse for a laugh. We galloped a few acres around the pasture and when I couldn't stop him, I bailed
Unharmed. And of course the **** horse stopped right after. ;)

On my pony Cody. One of the best horse people I know was teaching me about balance. She told me to be an airplane - stick your arms straight out and look ahead. Well, the sun cast a shadow on the cold, hard ground and Cody thought it was a club or I was going to smack him or something. Cody got scared and charged forward like the Devil was behind him. He went forward, I didn't. But here's the thing, I don't remember seeing him after that experience...

I honestly don't remember the first time I came off a horse, but I do remember the last. I had a brown pony mare who had a bit of a nasty streak and I was working with her to correct it. I mounted to go for a short ride and before I had my balance she had decided to take off. I fell off the off-side to her rear, landing on my hip and bouncing to my back. Hit the back of my head really hard so it was very lucky I was wearing a helmet. I had nearly 3 weeks off work due to the injuries I got. I now have a back protector...haven't needed it yet.

I rode as a kid bareback/hackamore, I was cantering along the side of the road in grass riding my sister's part arab gelding who shied at something, jumped sideways and I went down on my knees LOL that hurt!
This year is the first and second time I have fallen off my mare since I got back into riding 8yrs. Ago, the first time was coming in our driveway with friends, my dogs decided to be morons and flew down the hill through the bush and went to nip at Spice's heels, she gave a kick up at them....I was in LALA land and tipped forward and fell right beside her LOL
Then this fall I was on a trail ride with about 20 other riders, there was a lady I knew behind me on a big gelding, she was yaking away to me and I hear this commotion, I turn and look and her head is two feet from mine but I can't see her horse's head/neck! He had tripped and stumbled where his head/neck went under between my mare's back legs LOL she gave a little jump forward which got the horse in front of her po'd who kicked at her (we were in a very narrow trail) and Spice spun to the left and I slowly slide down the side of her LOL she didn't panick but stood and looked at me like she was saying sorry but I didn't know what else to do!!!
Hopefully I'm done falling now!

I was about 13. I was leasing this butt ugly gaited sway backed creature who was incredibly forgiving and totally bomb proof. Since he pretty much had a saddle for a back I would often ride bareback. A chihuahua got off leash and attacked my horse when we were standing by a tree taking a break. I was on a totally loose rein, horse freaks out and off I went.
