Thanks for the reaction JustSam!
I'm glad you got to find your confidence back too :)
Actually, after that fall, I've been riding for about a year. Like just in bits and pieces.
Everytime I'd get my confidence a bit up, I could wake up tommorow and have it be lost.
One time I was taking a lesson (It was the last lesson I have too upon today) one of the school horses I rode on for the second time just went out of the line and trotted faster.
I was so scared! I didn't dare to try pull him back.. I only pulled the reins to make him stop.
That's about.. 6-7 years ago I think.
The most recent (That is a year ago though, but it IS the most recent) was a small western horse ride. It was on one of those assisted small trailrides, where one just goes on as a pleasure ride, nothing major.
I was scared as HELL the first 15 minutes, particularly begging one of the girls that would guide is to keep the leadrope with them, just in case.
They both refused and assured I'd do fine, and even though I was happy to be back on a horse, I was so so scared.
The whole trip went just fine but when we got back to the stables, Kenny the horse I rode on, was walking a little faster than he was normally was, and it just got my heart racing
And this monday we're going to look at the stables and talk with the woman who'll be teaching me
I'll make sure to ask her wether or not she's going to let me do some groundwork and perhaps let me do some stuff with the horse before riding
Thanks for the advice!
