Do you know something we don't?

Okay when I was 11 the first time I rode a horse was on the trail and the riding instructer had not taught us the emergence dissmount so I fell off and hit head my on the ground which was like 30 CM from a rock. After that I rode cheeky in the lessons when sally said she was shuting down to move she said she was ethier selling the horses or the ones she was leasing got leased out so I asked sally if I could lease cheeky. So how would I get my confidence back please I need some help in getting mmy confidence

Not knowing the emergency dismount is not why you fell. Everybody falls. Unfortunately the only way to get back your confidence is to get back on. Ride ride ride.

You are going to fall, its a part of horse riding. If you get back on and get back in to learning to ride properly, you will learn how to prevent yourself from falling most of the time.

Yep. That's all I have to say.

Wait, I lied, I have more to add.

I lost my confidence two summers ago, when a pony bolted on me and I could not control her. I ran her into a fence and nearly took a spill (I had only fallen two times), and I was scared to death of cantering after that. So, for a year and a half, I did no cantering (unless it was hill-topping). But that is about the time I bought my mare & gelding.. The gelding was too spooky at the time for me to deal with so I rode my mare. She threw me, reared, bolted, bucked.. The whole nine yards.. But I kept getting back on. After I decided she was too much to handle I rode my gelding.. Who is a helluva lot calmer. I just did A LOT of trotting, and nothing else. No jumping, no trail rides, just trotting in a circle.

Well last fall I was taking a lesson on a school pony when the instructor asked me to canter. I was so nervous.. but I did a few strides.. Then each time after I would do more. Then in October (2009) I cantered my pony for the first time. Now I jump, canter, gallop, and everything else on green horses, and my ponies. Do I still fall? Yeah I fell a few weeks ago. Do I still get nervous? Sometimes but I work through the fear.

If you want to continue with riding then just get on a calm horse and work up to the fear. Push that fear to the side and with determination work to riding like a real horse-woman! But you have to want to. If you could care less then screw it, you "know you can't" - so therefore you cannot. You don't have the ability if you don't want to.

Thank you for being honest with us, at least.

Just gotta get back on and ride. ANd like they said, not knowing the emergency dismount is not a reason to fall. It just happens

Just be more careful not to make excuses next time :)

I think we've been saying get on and ride from the start. It's the only way.
