Quick Tip #73 If You Want To Stay On The Horse..
...then staying on the horse must not be your top priority. The top priority must be controlling the horse's speed, gait and direction.
That requires one to keep the hands on the reins instead of simply grabbing the saddle, holding and hoping. Holding and hoping are poor substitutes for control of where this 700 pound horse will carry you. All to often fear (panic) results in forfeiting control of the horse.
There is no time more important to be in control of the horse than when there is a problem.
To safely stay on the horse one must control the horse.
