How Falling off a Horse. What to do

When you understand that you are about to fall off your horse, look for soft ground to land on – it is much better to fall on sand, dirt or grass than on rocks or gravel!

Don’t resist, take your feet off the stirrups, let go of the reins so you don’t get dragged and, as you fall, don’t stiffen.

Keep your legs as soft as you can and resist the temptation to stretch out your arms to cushion the fall – you’ll only get a broken bone.

The more relaxed the body, the better the landing will be.
