    I have a small bruise on my hip. Otherwise I'm fine, as is the horse, thankfully. I am notorious for trying to ride through every thing. I only bail when there is no possible recovery from the situation. It's a bad habit, but I have yet been able to push through my own stubbornness to do an emergency dismount. Maybe when I stop bouncing when I fall I'll smarten up. Lol

    I'm glad you're alright as well as the horse :)

    I'm like you though, I don't bail but for the opposite reason. If I hit the dirt I am breaking a bone, hence why my horses have excellent ORS

    I don't like to bail either-that ground has gotten real hard over the years! I don't want to find my breakable point. I now leave the "problem" horses to younger riders.

    Yes, definitely check the saddle fit. No matter how tight the girth if the saddle doesn't fit, it can slide like this. I have learned this by trying to get my Aussie saddle to fit my mare with whatever gadgets I could think of, but the plain and simple is that the saddle just doesn't fit her.

    ORS if trained does work. I have also trained my horse for the Pulley Rein. Training to stop on voice command is not likely going to help much in a high adrenaline situation. Can't hurt, but I wouldn't rely on it.

    That all said, someone I know rode a horse that would just blind panic from time to time. Said horse would run right into a fence or tree if a ORS put him in that direction. I have no idea what ended up happening with the training and riding of that horse, but my acquaintance never rode him again. Absolute blind panic is rare, but very dangerous.
