I use to jump on a different horse in a show and the horse flipped on top of me then two years ago i started to ride with a friend and i have to work myself up on to a horse, like if i can clean the back hooves i will get on the horse and walk and when i get used to the walk illl go into the trot, well me and my friend was riding and i felt up to the canter and it went well the first time then the second time i did it the saddle slipped and she bucked and i landed on the ground and fractured my hip but i got back on her after i was off crutches, well my horse that i ride i start out at a walk and we trot, but i want to go further with our relationship and go to the full length, i want to canter her, but im terrified that the saddle will slip or she will buck and i fall off like before. i get almost to the canter, and when she speeds up on her trot i start freaking out and then i slow her down. how can i overcome my fear.
