    I've fallen off tons. I've always heard that if you haven't fallen off, you aren't riding hard enough.

    I've never been thrown when a horse acts up. I usually get angry, and for some reason, anger turns my butt into super glue. =] I do things like forget to turn. =P

    I used to take vaulting lessons, so we jumped on and off walking, trotting, and cantering horses. It was intense, but it did incredible things for my balance and secured my seat a LOT. I mean, you try flipping yourself in one move to face backwards while your horse is trotting or cantering, and then flipping back to the front. It really helped me learn to move with the horse, and I think that's why I can stay on a horse acting up, because I've learned to really feel and react and move accordingly. I'd recommend vaulting to anyone. =]

    BUT, if it makes you feel any better, I've never fallen off of my mare that I've been riding for two and a half years. Actually, no one has EVER fallen of my mare in her 17 years of life, until my sister rode her a few months ago and took a plunge. But that was the first time, lol.

    Well I'm trying **** hard. Despite my family and boyfriend telling me over and over that I'm an idiot for spending all my money on this. And despite school suffering so I can work more so I can ride. Haha. I don't know why I went back to school this year... all I want to do is ride.

    I hear ya! I'm also significantly overdue. It's been like, four years? I'm just waiting for my filly to start being ridden. I have two more years, but for some reason, I'm just sure she'll manage to throw me, lol.

    And no, cheply, you aren't an idiot for throwing all your money into horses. Right out of high school [2007], I bought Ricci, for a LOT of money, and ended up getting a baby in March from a friend, and I'm broke as hell, but I'm getting by. Everyone thought both horses were bad decisions, but I love them more than anything. So have faith, it'll all pay off eventually. =]

    I've had avery painful fall. My horse got scared by the towels swinging on the washing line. My mum was holding the lead roap and I was riding him bare-back with my sisters friend riding him behind me.-double up.i can't realy remember what happened because it was about 3 years ago. But I can remember this-I had fallen off and slamed my back into the washing line pole.the other girl fell off too.from what I know of, she hasn't gone on another horse since,but I have.

    That's just my expierince.if I were you,i would gane trust with your horse so you can believe in it and feel alot safer.

    I've fallen off over 100 times just off my pony. HA. I was one crazy kid.

    Falls happen. If it hasn't happened yet I wouldn't fret. Your time will come and you'll more than likely think "What was the big deal?" and jump back on.
