Fear while Riding

Greetings, I usually hang out in the trail riding section but thought that this topic goes beyond that so I知 venturing out a bit

I hope that everyone has a great weekend of riding planned! For us, we値l be speaking about riding in the back country at a fund raising event and our actual riding will be quite limited

That being said the September issue of the NW Horse Source has a wonderful article (although I値l admit I知 biased, I wrote it) on fear and riding.

We致e all experienced fear, apprehension, uncertainty, or as a good friend calls it 典he Pucker Factor while riding. In this piece I briefly explore (in as much detail as I can in 878 words) why fear may be a good thing, how to perform an emergency dismount, and a few methods to manage fear while you池e on the trail.

I hope that you find it helpful.

Good article! Though a trail ride without at least a mini-pucker is a bore......LOL!

Thanks! Great article! I can't believe how easily they summed up fear. It really is the fear of falling that is the issue. Every bad thing that can happen under saddle comes down to a fall. I never thought of it that way.
