How Many Falls Make a Rider?

CATALOGUE OF FALLS Heidi said a hundred! But Sara was like, noooo— seven. Seven falls make a rider. I seem to remember coming across the number ten, on a horsey board on the internet…

Gooooogle… hmm. Nothing. I’ll check again [I should really be working…]— ack, some nutter on Yahoo! Answers said 1,000! No way!

I’ve posted the question myself. We’ll see.

I like seven.

I’ve fallen six times so far.

UPDATE: Yahoo! Answers apparently is peopled by people who answer questions whether or not they have even the remotest expertise in relation to the query, but I did get an answer that approached the question with the correct amount of humour and an appreciation for the old-wives’-tale vibe of it. And it was the answer I wanted, so of course it was right.
