Only ever been bucked off once. I was 13 and it was my first ever time to come off a horse. I still have nasty knee and hip pain from that one.

I've fallen plenty other times, though. Currently suffering through a strained muscle in my ankle from a fall two weeks ago!

Hmm, about 9 times in a row with one pony...Do I take a while to get the point? I was trying to ride him bareback, in a round pen. He was kind of a jerk.
Then, 2 or 3 times with another pony but we worked out our differences and I could ride her anywhere bareback with a halter and leadrope. Around other horses, in an arena, out...around pond, in the road, through the christmas tree farm next door looking for a pony (actually that first one I talked about) that bucked somebody else off and took off, past big trucks and trailers and strange animals. Gosh, I loved that little girl.

Probably in excess of 300 times.

Stan had a wicked buck on him and delighted in putting bucks in on random occassions that I was unprepared for and would dump me on the floor.
I had stan for 10 years, and in that time he probably got me off on avarage every 2 to 3 weeks.

Reeco has gotten me off 5 times by bucking and a couple of other times by bolting.

RIDE your horse FORWARDS and keep him STRAIGHT

not as many as I first thought when you asked!
in 35 years, I can only remember 4 times, once I ended up in the hospital.
not bad really.

Horses are proof that God love's us and wants us to be happy!

Over the years I have been bucked off a number of times. I've lost count. Before I got my mare I was bucked off a 2 year old that had 30 days training on him. That one sent me to the ER for x-rays, but no bones broken. The next day I could barely move amd had prescription pain meds and muscle relaxers. Then when I got my QH mare she showed me that when she felt good she would sometimes pitch a buck. For the most part I stayed on her when she did it, but there many times she caught me off guard and off of her I'd go. Fortunately some how when I landed on the ground I still had hold of of rein or the other. I rode with split reins. Except for going off the 2 y/o I always gone up and got right back on.

Faye, you are exceptionally durable. From my 9 times getting bucked off I have had a horribly shattered wrist, three concussions, broke 3 helmets, 4 cases of whip lash, several horrible bruises, 2 torn pairs of jeans(me and the saddle horn do not get along) and one severely bruised ego.

I... have no idea. I had a Standardbred a few years ago that would buck going into canter. Turned out it was the saddle, which a fitter had told us would be fine, but my god could he buck! Not a ride went by that I wasn't ditched for such a long time, and then finally I started figuring out how to stay on and the bucks got bigger and bigger. And then I rode a pony for about 18 months that would buck as an evasion, to get out of work because he was such a lazy little sucker. He would buck, I would whack him hard with the crop, he would buck again, I would whack him... lol funny pony. He got me off more times than I can count. He also had this real dirty little habit of EVERY SINGLE TIME I tried to gallop him, dropping a shoulder, shying violently, and THEN bucking and taking off in the opposite direction that got me off every time. And then Monty's bucked me off once.

I've been dropped countless times by horses for reasons other than bucking, but have never once been thrown by a spin or a rear (or both combined), which I'm pretty proud of. I've also, to my memory, never actually had a fall that did not involve a horse doing something wrong.... but I've been riding since a pretty young age and never really considered falls any kind of significant so I probably have forgotten a great many.
