Which word is correct?
After the girl nearly fell (off / from) the horse, the trainer told her to watch out.

You fall OFF a horse, OFF a wall, OFF a ladder, etc.
You fall FROM a height, FROM the sky, FROM grace, etc.

Either could be, but I'd take off because she must have been on the horse and the best match for being on is off.

off is more common but both are correct

Either will work.
