I wouldn't try it! Although, I once had my cinch come loose when I neglected to get the tongue of the buckle locked against the latigo, and I rode 30-40 steps with the cinch just kind of dangling underneath before I realized why my saddle felt weird all of a sudden. Good thing I was able to do a kick dismount back in those days. The saddle was built for that horse, so it didn't move at all, but just felt like it was kind of floating up there. I'm sure a hard turn would have shifted it, because it would have shifted me. Mounting up with the horse standing still is one thing, a horse in motion is a very different thing.
Nah, there are already too many risky things to get yourself killed around horses. Better not to rack up too many stupid things to go with them. LOL
