I have fallen so many times. I've gotten a lot better with my balance now and I can usually move my body quickly to match the horse's if they spook or change their mind the last second.
Last summer was the first time I fell off my mare in the four years of owning her. I was riding bareback, barefoot, and with just the halter on. We were cantering a long and oh, she decides that the tall grass is very scary... Hahaha. She stopped fast and there I went. She stood by me and started nudging me with her muzzle, as if seeing if I was okay.
I just jumped right back on her and off we went again.
