Is that why when I did a "two thumbs up" I fell on my ass?!

I really appreciate your help. I can't wait to try it out as I'm sure that will help me a lot. My first day out I was just overwhelmed with everything and I think the voice in my head was probably too busy going "oh shit, oh shit, oh shit" instead of "hmm what techniques can I incorporate to become a better rider?"
