My first fall was on my horse Gage.
I was on bareback, then all of a sudden, I was on the ground, he was looking at me like, 'Gotcha huh?' lol. So I got back on, and he was fine, it was weird! I seen his head go down, then I was sitting on the ground! Gage was a beautiful Paint gelding 16hh VERY stocky built. I was about maybe 13 when I fell off.

I have been riding for about 7 years all over and I have never REALLY fallen off. Iv'e slid to one side becuase I had no balence then and then landed on my feet. But thats it. My balence is amazing 8)

LOL!! :lol: :lol:

My first fall was where Crackrider does endurance on THE most gawgeous Anglo-Arab chestnut, four socks and blaze gelding by the name of Chevy. Anyway we're trotting along my try-out ride to see if I qualify and I dont remember actually leaving the saddle just suddenly hanging off the side of it, nearly scrambling back in then thinking "Oh toss it and let go...."

Essentially Chevy went over the top of me, I landed on the ground helmet first and went to get up as Chevy trod on me with his back legs on my leg just below the shin!!!

I leapt to my feet, the adrenalin had numbed the pain (but not for long) and everyones like "Are you alright!?" And I'm like "Its cool. I'm good!!" Then blacked out for five seconds as we walked to the end of the trail but still stayed in the saddle and no one noticed!! LOL!!!

I had a stunner of a bruise too, perfect horseshoe shape and could harldy walk for three weeks!!! :oops: :oops: :oops:

Hmmm, I think my first fall was when I was "riding" Pepper. She was a bay QH, and I think she was getting close to two yrs old. My step-dad had put a saddle on her and let me sit on her back while he was leading us back to the barn, well I had a little mini-poodle at the time and she was outside with us. She decided that it would be a good idea to run under and between Pepper's back legs, which caused her to hop and sorta jump forward. Of course I lost my balance and hit the ground. After a minute I stood up and told my step-dad to "give me a sec" and I would get back on. I can't remember if I did or not :oops: I think I was about 14 or 15 because Pepper was one of the first horse's we bought.

My first fall was the first time I rode my first horse (lots of firsts there!) We were trying her out before we bought her, and no one had a saddle or anything so I got on her bareback. She never took one step forward, just let loose with three s-l-o-w big bucks. I hung with her for the first two, then on number three I was airborne! And yep, we bought her anyway! Don't ask me why. I was 10 and my mom hates horses and my dad had not ridden since he was a kid. I would have never let my kid near that horse again, but it worked out well because that mare really taught me how to ride! She was very unforgiving about mistakes and could buck like a bronc!
