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.
