Everybody has to start somewhere, the only way to build/rebuild your skills is to ride. If English isn't your thing ride Western. And ride to your and your horses ability, lessons on your horse is a very good thing to do.

Try that or just take your horse and board somewhere else, or drive around and visit a few farms and and ask if you can board at their house. That's how we started boarding horses for people. Someone came and asked if they could board at our horse and we said sure, and put up a fence divider and a new shelter. Now the money we get from boarding helps pay for our horses.
Thanks, I did just that, just moved her to another place where I feel it's more "me". Rider's and horses of all skill levels and trainers there all day, I feel much more comfortable already =) Calling my guy tonight to set up my forst 4 weeks of lessons =)

Good for you!!!! Don't e afraid to be comfortable in te horse world because if it's not fun then it's not worth it!! Same with showing, once it becomes a burden it's not fun anymore and horses are about having fun!!
