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.
