What is jumped off?

As in what almost happened to me this week.

We say a horse "jumps the rider off" if the rider falls during or immediately after the jump because of a lack of coordination between the horse and rider. It's usually caused by a disagreement over when to take off or by the horse jumping far higher than the rider expects. Needless to say, it's highly embarrassing.
