Falling off sucks, but if you ride, it will happen. I was getting smug with myself, gee, I haven't fell off in years and last time wasn't even on my own horse, because mine never cause me to come unseated. Hah, famous last words. A month ago or so, I was riding my horse right after a heavy snow. A bunch of snow fell off the trees, my horse jumped, then full out bronc'ed, surprised me, didn't even think he knew how to buck! Anyways it was easier just to fall off in the snow than put out the effort to stay on. Unlike you, (and very sorry to hear that), I wasn't sore at all, the snow was deep & soft.
