Don't worry, everyone will fall off every now and again... riding a horse is not just about knowing how to stay on, but how to fall off also. Just last Monday I was riding a horse at my job and I was riding english for the second time (I am a western rider) and the horse took off and threw his head down to buck, I lost my stirrup and flew over his head... I had a bump on my chin and was very sour... but that is just about riding... and actually 2 days before, on a friday, i was out trail riding and was thrown from my horse (I was riding western) when he bucked and spun around 2 times...
I can garanttee you that if you want a career in horses, you will be taking more falls, and it is fine if you get right back up again.
