[RC] Learning from Riding Accidents - Kristen A Fisher

I have been wondering about this for some time. I have heard many of you mention riding accidents you have had, whether on trail or at a ride, and wondered if you could identify a reason and hence take steps to prevent a recurrence.
 
Sometimes these stories frighten me (maybe THAT'S why I do LD haha), but I don't recall seeing anyone say "So to address that, I will..."  Eg, the last time I came off on a ride it was going from a wooded trail into a clearing; the trail went left and he veered right and we parted ways. Now I am alert to this trick and make sure to have better rein contact in those instances. So what steps have you taken to prevent accidents from happening?
