OP I thought of you when I saw this photo this morning:
Now you need to find ways to climb further up the ladder!
Not too long ago I was stuck at "I can't do it" with cantering. It scared me, it was too fast.. I was so scared. So it quickly turnd into "I won't do it" because my horse and I weren't ready!
Fast forward a few years and my new coach wanted me to canter since we had been walk and trot for so long. With such an encouraging coach, I jumped to "I want to do it" . Then it became "How do I do it?" and she showed me. Then "I'll try to do it" was my response as I sat there with my eyes shut on the lungeline. As I gave the cue for canter, I chanted "I can do it.. I will do it!" over and over to empower myself with positive thoughts.
By the end I grinned and said with confidence: I did it!
And girl if I
managed to canter, to get on that horse and ride... you
