    I used to be afraid of falling off.. but not anymore, assuming that it's just off to the side. A well-known rider (went to Royals and her mom also boards at my barn) from around here was killed when her horse accidentally ran over her after a jump, so that's always in the back of her mind. Although, I've always gotten up laughing whenever I've fallen.. except the one time where Major snuck in a buck and a quick pop to the side during a really relaxed canter at a show, I couldn't believe it!

    I get nervous when I'm bringing Indie in or out and there's another mare by the gate since I'm worried that they'll just run right through me... even though they usually move once I hit them with the lead rope once or twice.

    Right now, my one, unrational fear is of Indie getting hurt, becoming lame.. her arthritis being worse than the x-ray showed. (the x-ray just showed starting signs) Horses will be horses so I always remind myself of that.

    I too am scared of injuries, when my geldings get tickled and start acting like wild studs I want to faint!
    Rick has a nice scuff on his nose right now from a nasty kick to the head! I'm also terrified of ringbone, EPM, and worms.

    Falling off when galloping because of any reason, and being dragged along sometimes crosses my mind, but I'm not too fearful in general and know how to handle most risky situations that can be usually encountered.

    Oh I'm terrified my girl is going to get hurt. Little lump of dirt = broken leg/sadness/pain/death.

    I'm scared of someone stealing my horse. Every day when I leave and come back home I look for him to make sure he's still there. To anyone else he's probably not worth much more then meat weight so this is a completely irrational fear.

    I'm also afraid of him breaking a leg in a hole, so we carefully scout any areas I plan on letting him move faster then a walk for holes before riding there. This one is rational since we have stumbled into dozens of holes while riding at a walk. I map them all out in my head so we never hit them again.

    I hate walking horses through another pasture inorder to get to their pasture. (Only when there are horses in that pasture). I just absolutely hate it and think it is annoying and a bad idea. When I build my farm, the pastures will be accessible by one gate and not have to go through other pastures :)

    Having a horse flip on me. Been a long while since I've had a horse rear under me and I think that hasn't helped. Bucking, bolting, spooking, aggression/rudeness on the ground I will happily tackle but rearing under saddle scares the bejeebus out of me...

    Foal
    Lots of things scare me... but most of all, I fear walking out to my pasture and seeing my favorite accident prone horse seriously hurt... again. And now I have a new fear... walking out to the pasture and seeing my new mare in foal having trouble.
