I've always been afraid of my bridle falling off. That's why I'm always so freaked out when I see the western bridles with only an ear-loop. Eep.

My sister actually did pull Freddy's bridle off when he dumper her at the Willow Grove show this summer. Luckily, Freddy decided not to be an ass a run off. But I found it funny because my sister came flying off, and then the bridle flipped up in the air and then landed. XD
Here's the video.

Glad you're okay, though!

Oh wow.... and that arena has "Scary" things in it too! Glad you too are okay.

I've had that happen to me out on trial, though my mare never freaked (I did tho)... I use to ride in a Hackamore, and the little screws fell out! I didn't notice until she stopped dead in her tracks.... I had to get my mare home, which was a mile or 2 away, with only my reins.... which she's barn sour, so it was tough.... I rode with my halter in my saddle bags from then on.

Here's the video.
YouTube - Willowgrove Horse Show Part II 0.90M Jumpers *Fall at the end*

Glad you're okay, though!
I love Fred. He just cracked me up the whole video. He'd cross-canter and/or be on the wrong lead and two strides before the jump, he'd fix himself or change to the correct lead. I'm not critiquing, I'm just saying I think his little quirks are adorable. =]

The blooper is pretty hilarious. Mostly because of Fred, lol. He did seem very confused that his bridle was not on anymore, and when they walked away at the end, he seemed so, "Oh. We're down now? Ok." =]

To the OP, sorry about your freak accident. The worst thing that's ever happened to me is my reins will get twisted and placed weird on my western bridle. Hard to explain, but it's really no big deal, just puts pressure on a little differently, lol.

And dressagexlee, how does THIS bridle make you feel? Notice it doesn't have any browband, earpiece OR throatlatch. =]

Yeah, he's trained to balance on both leads! We figure that the last thing you should worry about in jumpers is leads, and you should teach them to balance either way. Plus, he kicks out in "asked-for" flying changes... He's odd like that. XD And quirky? Oh yes. Sweet jesus yes.

That bridle... good thing he has such large ears!
