I Have Been Ridding For 3 Years Now. So Not For To Long, But I Just Recently Bought My First Horse Ever. I Have Had Her Buck Plenty Of Times, I Have Been On Horses Who Have Bolted And Reared, How Ever I Have Never Fallen Off...Yet :P
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.
That depends, does it count as a fall if I landed on my feet? Haha, the first time I attempted a jump on my friend's pony I came off but just sort of flipped over her and landed on my feet. It looked like an emergency dismount but I didn't mean to do it lol. Posted via Mobile Device
