Perhaps you thought the riding instructor viewed the other rider as being better, or that you weren't good enough? Are you eleven now?? Did your parents speak to the riding instructor about leasing the horse? If they didn't then there is the possibility that the instructor didn't take you seriously.
I think it would be best to continue riding to bring your confidence back up. It must have been sad to see your horse go to someone else, but it gives you the opportunity to ride other horses and experience different things.

There is no such thing as natural horsemanship, because nothing we do with horses is natural. There is only good and bad horsemanship.
