I know that feeling, except when mine happened it was 'cause my brother pushed me off the woodshed roof (don't ask lol!)
When I fall I tend to actually relax now, it's just my instinct. After I broke my ribs coming off my first horse, I was trying and failing to scramble my way back on when I hit the ground at a full on gallop all hunched over from scrambling... Yeah, not fun.
My last fall I had, I was bucked off so high that I had time to look at the ground, and go "oh crap", relax and then hit the ground.. I WAS wearing my helmet, I never get on my horse or anyone elses without one. I ride in a Dublin Silverline, sooo comfy!! I'm on my second one, I seem to stick with one type of gear once I like it :)
