    My first fall came when I was riding bareback and it wasn't so much a fall as a oh im falling I better emergency dismount.

    I was loping in the arena bareback and my horse broke into a trot when I didn't ask for him to and at the time my lack of experience didn't see the signs of him slowing and I started to bounce everywhere and felt myself sliding off and so I just vaulted off and landed on my feet thank goodness.

    Thus far that is the only time I have come off of a horse.

    I've been riding for 5 years and I haven't fallen off yet....I have to say I'm ashamed in telling people because I feel like they're going to think I'm boasting or something....

    But I do see some falls in my near future; I got a dressage saddle after not riding in an english saddle for 3 years, so this should be interesting :)

    I don't remember my first fall really but I do remember falling off a lot as a kid. The rule was that you could ride with a saddle when you could saddle your own horse so I rode bareback alot, I was also quite convinced that the only speed my horse had was gallop!
