Lonestar, the problem is I don't think there is really anywhere around my area that I can take riding lessons. My brother-in-law has been helping me learn, but I can't always be in a ring. That does help though, I guess I am just going to have to get over it and get on her.
I am afraid to ask my brother-in-law questions, I am afraid he is going to laugh at me or think I'm stupid because he has been around horses his entire life. I really love being on her and with her, but I just get nervous. I am kinda confused about how to make her walk, after my husband rides her and gets her going quicker, when I get on her she wants to go faster and I have trouble making her walk. I think my problem is knowing exactly what to do, she is a great horse though, acts a lot older. I know when she takes off too fast that its my fault, but I'm not quite sure how to fix it? She is very calm and has been ridden alot, she listens pretty well but sometimes I don't know what to do/say if that makes sense? She responds to speaking commands and my feet. Any suggestions there?
Thanks for the tip, I will start riding her more and hopefully I will get more comfortable.
