I had the same experience a few weeks ago, don't worry about dumping it. Just brush it off and enjoy the experience of going off-road.
Definitely get the right gear and tools. Boots are 100% must, riding pants are a high suggestion, and I highly recommend a jacket with nice elbow pads. This all let me feel safe diving off the bike. I dumped it maybe 20 times in total and I don't feel like I came even close to trapping my ankle under the bike. When you realize it's going over, just dump it and get off.
