I would get on her pretend nothing even happened and when she goes to spook just bend her to the inside and circle around intil she stops spooking. If you do fall off again if there is someone with you, you should have that person jump on her to make her know she didn't win! Good luck with her! Message me if you need more help I would be happy to! (:
A good many times the reason a person falls is not the horse's fault and someone getting on and beating it will achieve NOTHING>
Even if the horse was naughtyy, by the time someone jumps on , the horse will not associate it with the fall.
You might have someone get on and work through the issue, and get the horse calmed and going forward correctly, but BEAT IT?
