Sounds like you need lessons on your lease horse. It's easy to ride school horses but those other horses out there either are more "hot" than a schoolhorse needs to be, or lack in training.. or are so well trained that they're a mess for beginners.
And there is nothing wrong with being a beginner. Just that it's time to move up a level with a trainer by your side.
Lessons on different kinds of horses will further expand your horse riding skills to a range of horses and not just the wellbehaved ones.
It's okay; don't feel depressed. Take this as a sign that you have a little more to work on now :) You'll get there in no time!
