If I'm practicing an "emergency dismount" I take both feet out and jump off and away from my horse.
I get on and off both sides to make my horse a little more used to weird things, and for even wear on my stirrup leathers.
Also, I ALWAYS take both feet out, I'ma trail guide at my barn, and one day, while helping a man dismount we had an accident.
He left hi foot in the stirrup and the saddle slid halfway down the horse's side, and his foot got stuck. I also had to cut the girth in order to get the saddle off. Thank god for that horse! She stood there the whole time
