Obviously not head first. Feet first is probably the second worst option - how many guys do you see in the NHL get injured doing that?
I can't say I have any experience doing this, but I have lots of experience horseback riding and getting dumped there and I'd imagine some of the principles are the same. Tuck in your arms, tuck your legs, tuck your chin. Try and hit with your shoulder/butt/hip - less joints to injure and they've got more muscle and fat to pad the impact. That said, if you're going in really hard I'm not sure how much time and control you'll have over what you hit.
