K, got it. That does suck.
One more suggestion, take a look at the width of your stirrups, what's on them where you step, and your boot soles.
I've fallen quite a few times, mostly at the canter, and I have never been hung up. Some of my boots have leather soles, some have rubber soles (but meant for riding so they are not deep/aggressive). And my stirrups have rubber pads (english) but the are not very wide so the shoe doesn't have far to go before it's off the stirrup completely.
I gotta say that's a nightmare scenario.
