I've fallen off 5 times in my riding career, but only one of those times was because of a buck. It was my first ride on Scout, and I insisted on riding in my English saddle. Yeah, idiot move, riding a new horse of unknown training level in the least secure saddle I own. He'd apparently never cantered with a girth tightened before. He got a little excited in the trot and goosed up into a canter, and the girth caught him and he threw a little buck that I wasn't expecting, and I ate arena dirt.

Twice, on two different horses (a year or so apart). Both during expensive clinics with a professional audience. Great timing I have, eh? For my credit, they were both spook bucks and took me by surprise to say the least.

I have only been actually bucked off maybe 3 or 4 times in 25 years. However, I have fallen countless times due to spooks or me just having my head up my butt.

Iv ate dirt a few times over my 6 years of riding, Nothing serious (knock on wood)... .Yeah I havent been riding as long as many of you but HEY you gotta start somewhere.

Before I started having issues with my back, I could handle just about every buck but the off gaurd spooks got me a few times. I also tried out my friends english saddle...

Me+english saddle+ spooked horse = Hanging off the side of the horse with my foot stuck. Not fun, Dont worry my head and shoulder broke the fall LOL

Oh god, Chinga use to be terrible! Every ride we'd have a buck, or four! Although suprizingly he's only got me off twice and Corby's gotten me off once, although hers was a full rear, buck, wee. Type thing ... mares.
