I guess it's more embarrassment on my part. I have fallen off him 2x now and both times in front of several people. The first time was entirely my fault. My legs were tired and I got the bright idea to ask him to canter. My foot fell out of the stirrup, I lost my balance and off I went. Now again today, in front of the BO (who was there the first time) and some prospective buyers looking at other horses. It makes me feel like maybe they're thinking "Jeez, what is that girl doing on a horse!" Plus, I am a little insulted that he doesn't trust me to not put him in danger. I've been riding him for 4 months, maybe a little more than that. 2 to 3 times a week. First mostly just on the trails, now more arena work with a trainer. I've NEVER put him in a dangerous place and he's always been brave on the trails. That's what makes it irritating to me...but I wont let that come through on my rides. That's why I ended my ride after that.
