Nerves after a bad fall

I was badly injured just leading a horse - and I'd been around horses for many years when it happened, it still sits at the back of my mind but time is a great healer
I also fractured my skull in a fall and have worn a helmet ever since - I realise that it doesn't make me invincible but it does help a lot so I would definitely say buy a safety vest
If you're determined to ride then you will conquer those fears
Our GB showjumper Nick Skelton broke his neck and thought he might never jump again and so did one of our top eventers Mary King - and that is a heck of a high risk sport.
