Alright folks, I know you have them so let's see them! :lol:

Here's the only one I've ever had caught on film...at the SCARY tire jump!

Lovely pic. Haha. :D I suprisingly haven't fallen off jumping yet. Soo we'll have to wait and see.

The last time I came off a horse while out on CC was eons ago back at the Bridlewood Horse Trials back in B.C Canada. So I have no CC fall pictures to share, as of yet that is.

Now that I am moving Nelson to an Eventing Facility, with a coach who pushes his students above and beyond, I am sure I will have some to share. I'll keep you posted, lol.

Not the worst but the scariest fall I've ever had I wasn't even jumping. I was going through the woods and went around a bend and the footing became really soft. Remi tripped and fell on his knees and I was ejected over his shoulder. Got a hole in my helmet from a rock. Luckily Remi just stood there and looked at me. I wasn't hurt and neither was he, but my helmet definitely need to be replaced.

Wow Prodomus - oucha ma goucha. I see on your Youtube thinggy that you broke bones due to that fall. Yeesh. I bet you wont ever jump ahead like that again. It takes accidents like that to teach us to stay behind our horses.
