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.
