Haha that happened to me, but with my Dad. First time he came to watch me ride... I almost fell off 2 times, then the third time I fell off in between the horse and the arena wall and slid down the wall. We were doing a course with a jump in the middle of a 20 meter circle and after the jump instead of going left to finish the circle we had to go right and jump another jump. Got back on and did the course proper after that. I had a nice scrape down my back, which I thought was just sand in my breeches. :P
And one of the first times my boyfriends parents came to watch me ride I fell off when the horse side stepped out of a jump. I fell in front of her and she had to step over me. Needless to say I was in fetal position until I saw all 4 hooves infront of me! I was lucky, I only got a bruise on the back of the thigh and a sprained finger haha.
