    Gravity doesn't like those who don't fall. Just go to the moon already

    I've fallen too many times to count and I've given up on counting.

    The only thing I really learned at the first place I rode at was this: you're not really a real rider until you've fallen ten times. You could still be a good rider, just not a real rider.

    And sometimes when I fall, I do "emergency dismounts", that is, I land on my feet. Go ninja me! XD

    I've only been bucked off a horse once. I HAVE jumped off horses that tried to go backwards on top of me or tried to roll on me. I've been riding for 7 years and ridden dozens of horses for many differant people but the only horse that ever bucked me off was my own mare. I think its just because I read the horse and don't expect to get bucked off. If you start looking at the horse wondering if this will be the one then it might well be because you start looking for that moment and that shocks your confidence.

    You have to believe that you are better than your horse and that you think for the horse.

    I wouldn't worry about it. But it always surprises me to here of some one never fallin off before. I guess that s because I've fallen off so many times, mostly because I was doing something stupid. I wouldn't sugest this though, if your ment to fall off then you will. If not, your one of the lucky ones lol. You have on idea how hard ot is to get grass/mudd stains out of white pants! Lol

    I haven't fallen off either.
    And every time I get on a horse in my mind I'm like "it's going to happen... NOW!... no... it's going to happen..." lol.
    It just feels weird being a part of the horse world and never have fallen off.
    I understand exactly what you mean. Lol

    I loved reading through these. I got a good story

    Picture this
    Nervous rider.. supposed beginner horse...not-to-good instructor.. first lesson.
    The horse- 16.1hh black ASB 7 y/o. Named Hunter.
    Was acting up quite abit before we even got started!

    Now.. I got on him.The instructor wanted me to ride without stirrups or holding the reins to improve my balance...What balance?. Lol. He was tripping quite abit. She was leading him. It was going ok.She walked him over some trot poles... and he FREAKED, He BUCKED and BOLTED one way,and I fell the other way.FIRST EVER LESSON. To add insult to injury,there was 6 other riders, jumping and cantering in the arena!
    But.,. They were nice,. Nearly everyone asked if I was ok

    And I got back on

    I've fallen off more from poorly fitting saddles than any other reason I think!

    I've found, in general, if the saddle is a good fit, I stay on. But I've had saddles that were not-a-good-fit roll onto the side of the horse when the horse spooked.

    I've done a couple "emergency dismounts" where I've baled on purpose, but have only truly been bucked off once.

    I was actually bucked off by my very best horse and it was totally my fault. I was cantering him around some trees and all of a sudden there was a bush in the way I didn't realize was there. He jumped it, I lost a stirrup, and he started bucking. I stayed on for a couple of bucks and then hit the ground rolling and ended up on my knees, perfectly fine with no bruises or anything! And I was so shocked I went up to my horse and asked him if he was okay, lol!

    I think my hardest landings have come from when I was younger and rode bareback. I don't "do" bareback anymore!

    I've been riding 17 years.

    Falling off a horse is good and bad..
    Good as in you learn what to do an what not to do, and you don't take the stupid risks, and bad as in you could get seriously injured and the horse could too. After you fall a few times you aren't as scared and you know what to do (at least that's what happened with me).

    I'm a beginner and have never fallen. The only time I've almost fallen I think was the last day of riding camp last summer, the first time I trotted on a really sweet light grey gelding. When my instructor told me to trot, I was like, "Alright, here I go, let's hope I don't fall!" :P And I didn't fall, but I did feel really bouncy, not exactly uncomfortable, but.... sort of like I could just bounce right out of the saddle, lol. I'm sort of anxious to fall, almost, if you know what I mean. It's just like I want to have my first fall and get it over with so I know what to expect the next time. Does that make any sense?
