When I first got up on Honey, I had to be led around like it was a pony ride. I then got the chance to ride my old mare and gained my confidence a little with the ride. After that little by little... in tiny areas, and then on the lunge I got to the point where I could walk comfortably by myself...
Thanks so much for the inspiration, I feel confidant but there is still a nagging in the back of my head, a little worried I might freak when the moment comes. But we will see :)
I didn't dare dream of riding when the nightmare of what happened was fresh in my mind... because at that stage it played over and over and I actually felt like giving up horses... my accident was pretty freaky.
If you have a friend or family member who can help, let them with your first ride or so... even if you're only up there for 10mins... it means you got back up!
