Bucked off!

I know that we have all been bucked off a horse at least once, so let's share our experiences!


I was riding at my dressage stable on a horse named Dreamer. She was a 3 year old morgan mare who had terrorized the advanced class of campers in the previous summer. Many campers had felt the rath of the mare and were too scared to climb aboard. Sally came to me before my lesson and says "Oh do I have the horse for you!". So I go and get her from her stall and admire how gorgeous and athletic she was. After I had brushed her and tacked her up I walked into the arena to mount and I said, "I don't see what the big deal is about her." I jump on and my mother begins video taping my lesson. Dreamer puts her head down very low to the ground and violetly starts trying to rip the reins out of my hand. We start circles and she blows UP! Remeber I said she was very athletic! I gave my best effort to stay on but I lost my seat and flew directly towards to metal wall. BANG! What does my mom do? Well she continues taping as I am lying on the ground, and after replaying the tape I see a big smile on my riding instructors face!

Those jerks

oh, poor amanda! thats so mean! I personally have been bucked off twice...

I was trail riding with the boy that I liked and my best friend I was on myke Sarah (best friend) was on Misty (one of the lesson horses, I can also ride her...) and Jeff (the kid I liked) was on his horse jasmine. We were just walking on a straight wider path where we decided to take our feet out of our sturrips and let the horses have a long rein...We walked for a long time when out of no where mike started bucking, he bucked three times before I came off. we have no idea why he started bucking but I only ended up getting hurt because I held on to the reins and got a BAD rope burn.

The second time I got bucked off I was on our greenbroke thoroughbred and he was doing awesome but some guy came down the bridle path ringing a bell and viento (our tb) flipped out, bucking and rearing, I was close to staying on too but got to heavy in my shoulders. I was unharmed except for a bruise on my head from hitting my head on his neck.

It will come in time.......then you can smile with us..

Good thing this is not a Falling off topic, I have like 30 falls I could talk about! When ever one of the lesson kids start to worry about falling off they always tell the kid to ask me how many times I have fallen off. I may have fallen off the most times in our barn....wow.....that would be funny.....

Don (barn owners wife) has always said..."If you fall off, dont worry, the ground will catch you."

Then when a lesson falls off and shes crying don goes up to them and says..."whats wrong, the ground caught you didnt it?"

I bought a "full of life" horse when I was very young and didn't know how to ride, really. For the longest time I thought you rode a horse from the ground. Time after time I was flung off of him. It came to the point where it didn't phase me. Those where the days. Haven't fallen in years, he taught me well.
