I agree. Notice but don't obsess over your mistakes. It gets you down on everything else.
It sounds like your having a bad time with life in general. I find my mood effects my riding, so if i'm feeling like i'm stuffing up everywhere I usually stuff up everywhere.
You have only been riding 2 years.....you will make mistakes, just be sure you learn from them.
I make mistakes, i've been riding for 6 years.
Changing horses does make a difference, my new horse is tall, bouncy, unbalanced, uneducated with a huge stride. My older horse ozzie is short, fat, lazy, flat movement, educated and balanced. I almost fell off marco first ride. Private lessons do help alot!!! In 8 weeks of private lessons I learnt more then 2 years of pony club group lessons. My horse went from hollowing out his back to doing elevated extention trot! Marco is learning to use his muscles and go on the bit so he's still learning but I tell you what, it's like day and night those two :)
What people are trying to say is go on a trail ride, have fun, do something different to liven things up for both of you :) remember to fart around and have fun every now and then
