well Ive only fallen off twice haha, but the first one wasnt nice.
We were having a decent day (i lie it was horrible) bubbles was pulling on me 24/7 and i was fighting back, dunno what was up her bum but boy was she havin a crabby day. She packed a mental after jumping a teensy 30cm jump n i lost a stirrup, she swung left, i swung right, held onto her for all it was worth and then was around her neck legs dangled down, when she kicked my leg which sent me to the ground and underneath her, she buggered off down to the gate after running me over completely. Shattered my helmet, dropped me in the only mud puddle in the **** paddock (funny how that happens) and broke 4 of my left ribs. Well i was pissed off as you can imagine, after a few minutes of swearing my heart out and yelling and screaming at her i got up, covered in mud head to toe on my right side, got back on and rode and worked her harder till she behaved and nearly tripped up cause she was so exhausted.
Didnt figure out till after 6 weeks of painfull moving, excrutiating pain when sneezing and coughing, that i had done the ribs in.. oops. didnt go to school for 6 weeks it was that bad. not cool.
The other one was your simple "oh i'll swing on indian style bareback" bubbles=BUCK... me "uh yeah head first into the dirt" that didnt last long did it. lol.
