Only fallen off jumping once.. was on a pony that overjumps but it wasn't because of that.. was jumping no stirrups and he had a hard to ride jump and a bouncy canter. We landed and I went right off. ;D
Diesel overjumps but I haven't fallen off yett.

My horse will pop jumps if I am not careful to pick a good spot. I have never fallen off when he has popped a jump (or any other horse has) or over jumping to be honest, but popping jumps is almost worst. They are first, of all, guaranteed to overjump - and they launch themselves over from basically a standstill sometimes. Just awkward all around.

Hahah I once expected my horse to overjump and got way too far ahead (was far too busy with my upper body) and launched myself over her head-- learnt that lesson- better to be left behind than get ahead

some ditches have a pole on both sides & some have it only on the take off side. That is the difference, its called riveted or something like that haha. A true trak will have a true ditch so to speak. Im not sure if that's a rule or anything, but that's what I've been taught since forever haha

Sultan (my avi) over jumped almost everything xD
He's only 7 and is still learning. I never fell off because I learned to expect it from him. I did get left behind a few times though.
