Once. And it was this year. After about 13 years of riding, not being bucked off...of course I have fallen off plenty of times, but that is different. So it was my fault, not warming a horse up. But I had ridden him every day for about 2 months without him pulling anything. I got on, started him walking and he just blew up and started bucking harder than I have ever seen a horse outside a rodeo arena. I went over his head and landed on my shoulder. Ouch. Safe to say I now lunge my horses up before I get on. No matter who it is. Next day I was so nervous to get on a horse. I decided to get on my old horse. Jumped up bareback, he bucked, luckily I have a better time hanging on bareback than with a saddle. I used to think I was invincible. Not anymore.

Zero. My horses aren't buckers. At worst, they spin around a bunch.

One really bad buck off that is still causing me issues four months later. The other time I only count it is a half of a buck off because I wasn't even all the way on when she started bucking. Other then that the other times I have come off I have fallen off or bail off.

Very, very few. Maybe twice. And that's a good count with all of the training we do.
I have been able to control a buck, a bolt or a rear to stay on. Its spooking that tends to catch me off guard.

Green Broke
Have no problem staying on through spooks, rears, bolts, but its the bucking that gets me off. Lets see:
3 times by a mustang
1 by a thoroughbred(broke my wrist horribly)
3 times by stock type horses
2 times by a crazy arab

So 9 ish? All of the worst bucking horses i've ever known were stock type horses.

Once! When my mare was green broke. We brought her back from the trainers and I was riding her with my sister on a horse in the arena. We found out then that she would buck when a horse came cantering up behind her...i was not expecting it at all and I just flew off lol. I was also really young. Its been so many years but she honestly still gets a weird look on her face whenever a horse is passing too fast.

I've been bucked MANY times but I rarely fall off. I think I've only been bucked off twice... Both by my old blind appy, Tater. The first time was when I didn't know he bucked and I was doing a 4H drill. The other time I semi-expected the buck but had no idea he was going to rear before the buck. Needless to say, I hit my head on his and slid off after his little 'explosion'. He bucked me multiple times between those two events and multiple times after.. Which, unfortunately, led to me selling him.
I've also been bucked by my pony and by my aunt's horse that had a bucking issue.. I'm 99% sure I rode the buck out of him. Unfortunately, when I was improving her horse, she was letting mine spook out on trail -_- So, yea. I've been bucked off twice.

I've been bucked off once. It happened a few years ago, back when I was still a beginner. My lesson horse bent his head down to graze on some grass near the fence line and my coach believed he was stung by a bee which caused him to startle and buck. Ended up fracturing both my arms that day.
