Is it possible, you're nervous riding in front of people? Them watching, and possible constantly correcting you? I know for a fact that was our daughters issue. The girl can ride, and twirls baton competively in national completions. 4 year champion btw :) proud pappa. But start barking at her, she falls apart. Maybe you need to figure it out on your own. You'll feel what works and what doesn't. I'm not saying to go unsupervised. But just play on your mare. Go for a trail ride with friends, go run a totally off pattern. Just enjoy it. Our dAughter today twirled for a basketball game. Made the whole thing up her self. No teacher or anything. Just knows her tricks and made it work. Awesome! Same thing when she rides. We bust her chops about seat hands legs etc.... But she gets more out of riding with friends or alone. And just playing. Can't say I haven't seen three girls on one horse laughing and smiling as they go bucking past. Fun. Same as horses. Make it all work, it'll be hard to get em to do it. Have fun and enjoy the work that's got you there.
