CW I have spent a considerable time developing the correct way to fall off the horse. You have mastered the art in one go, and that is not to do to much dammage to ones self. Well Done.
Saddle slip. I use a breast straps they stop the saddle from going all the way around if the girth comes loose.
Teach Belle to allow mount and dismount both sides, you never know when on the trail the ability to use both sides of the horse is needed and its always at a time when the horse has not been trained for it. They accept it very quickly.
Off for a bush ride now so pictures later. That's if I can catch Stella, made the mistake and let her go last night at a friends with several other horses and on a hill. Odds are she will be at the top and when I get there she will run down to the bottom. Just have to love the horse at times like that or have a big gun.
