Getting confidence back, any wise words?
Hello all I'm Britt, new to the forum! I've been in love with horses since the age of five and they're all I've ever really known well. I've never taken a liking to much else the way I did with Horses and Riding. I'm 18 now but a couple of years back I brought this beautiful chestnut mare and we soon found that her quiet and sweet personality would dissapear completley. She turned into a mennace, she was fine with men loved them but would a women come close to her she would loose it. There was no getting close, I was literally heartbroken and terrified from the amount of times I'd fallen. We eventually sold her to a lovely young man and haven't heard anything since. It's been a year and a bit and I miss riding so much and just the complete calm horses bring me. But i'm still worried and nervous, any helpful suggestions to get over this stupid fear I miss that part of my life.
