I actually had on slip on buckaroos, which I still own, and they fit correctly with a slip in the heel... I don't know what happened, I think I got knocked out and came out of the stirrup pretty quick. Hard to say... can't quite recall. Also I had aluminum barrel stirrups with grip on the saddle... I was pretty much hung up every way possible.

Like I said... 100% my mistake though. I'm an idiot.

My personal worst accident isn't that bad. I was riding a horse I'd been working with, and it was winter. It was extremely warm that day, though, which was the only reason I was riding him. I didn't realize he would still be fresh, considering it had been freezing for endless weeks.
I hadn't ridden him in ages and was pretty tense.. I hadn't recalled how fast his canter was and freaked when he started to go. So I brought him back to a trot and then asked him on again... he took off at a full gallop, jumped through the air and landed bucking. Needless to say I went off and blacked out. O.o
Worst one I have seen/had happen was a friend of mine.. she was riding one of my old ponies, Sprout in a show. It was a pretty big show, and there were a loot of horses. Sprout is really nervous sometimes and they were all cantering in a group and he just got too scared. He bucked a couple times and she fell off. Her braces went through her lip & she was gushing blood.. fractured both of her arms as well. She has been riding again for a while but is off with tendonitis as a result of the fractures for the next two weeks.:(

well my friend had one on the 11th he was at a rodeo in Montana and he was riding a bull but when he tried to get off he realized some one tied the rope around his hand and he ended up getting smashed up by the bull and he got stabbed with the horn in his stomach he ended up dying out behind the arena. Kinda sad and missing him but things happen i mean rodeos arnt the safest things you can do.

I have lots of bad accidents! =]
Lol, But I'll only share one.

I took my paint horse barrel racing, just like every friday night. We were having a fantastic night! my boyfriend at the time was there and everything... We started out great, went around the first barrel beautifully, then the second.. and third.
We were headed home and coming in the catch pen and I guess he hit some loose footing. All I know is that we went down to the right and he did a full flip/roll over top of me. I was knocked out and an ambulance came to take me to the hospital.
They thought I had broken ribs and whatnot, but Xrays showed nothing! I got lucky =]
Poor buddy, he didnt mean it =/

a few years ago i had a mare who was a total ****head. she wouldnt halt one time in a lesson so my trainer just gave a bit of a tug on the rein [no big deal] & the mare just lost it. she reared & flipped over on top of me, we nearly landing on a hot wire that was on =/ i was knocked out for over half an hour & had to be med flighted into a nearby hospital. it sucked my head was effed up, the doc thought i was gonna have brain damage [at least i dont think i do ! =P ] i wasnt allowed on a horse for 6 months !

2 months ago my 3yo bucked me off & broke my arm. i was pissed bc i asked these two people to wait for me to go anywhere bc i was on a young one & guess what ? they didnt & she got all freaked out [had never ridden her where she couldnt see a horse, only 20x undersaddle...] so she took off bucking down the length of our arena & i just fell off & broke my arm & hand. thanks a lot guys !!

this one isnt that bad, but i just started riding seriously after breaking my arm & the second time i rode one of the horses i train he decided to take a little 2ft plank long AND he decided he wanted to jump 3ft OVER the top jump [my friend & her mum were watching it happen] of course i got left behind, & he landing & took off bucking, i flew off & landed on my face & shoulder. this happened on sat.

Oh, yeah, totally, she's like a sister to me. I've had her for 7 years and she's still sound and totally amazing. Once I realized about the saddle (not long after the incident), pretty much all her issues cleared up. Not that that's surprising, but I'm really glad that I took the initiative to look into it, because I couldn't ask for a better horse.

That's good. I'm glad you still have her. And it's good that she's sound now as well.

Awww, I'm sorry buddy09, that must have been terrible...rodeos are very dangerous, especially with the bulls. At least horses have sense, bulls have nothing.....
