: Yup. Yup. Then there was the time I was trotting down the road (English tack) and got out of sync. Bump, bump, bump bump and on the fifth bump slid right outta the saddle onto the ground.
: Was stupid really......the other folks just couldn't figure out how it happened. One minute upright and going along fine, next minute on the ground alongside the horse with him looking at me like "way to go, stupid". If he hadn't been a gelding already, he woulda been right then and there.

LMAO!! That's the trouble with that darn English tack..nothing to hang on to when you lose your balance and gravity takes over!!
It's really funny when the horse stops, you don't, and you end up draped over his head, still hanging on to the reins! Very unladylike position to find yourself in..LOL.
