    Exclamation Low on confidence

    Hey everyone,
    Ever since my last fall last year, I haven't had much confidence at all. Right when I was confidentmwith my horse, she tried to throw me a couple of times in a day. I feel really scared. I won't sell her because I would like to solve this problem instead of getting rid of it. Please help!

    I have a question for you. Ok a couple of questions. First, how old are you? Second, what is your level of experience?

    Do you work with a trainer? English/Western?

    Yes I work with a trainer that trains both me and my horse. I ride a gaited horse, but in a western saddle.

    The other question is : does all the equipment fit the horse properly? Make sure nothing is hurting the horse. Teeth checked?

    This is just one of many times where you will need another person to help you past this road bump. Is the trainer working with you on rebuilding your conficence,? Is he/she supportive of the emotional need you might have right now, or is she just "cowboy up and get on with it!"?

    Yes all equipment was measured and tested before bought, and teeth got checked 2 months ago.

    No he's an amazing trainer and is always asking me if I feel comfortable before doing something and stuff like that. It's more that the horse now respects him when he's riding her and when I'm riding her in her mind she's thinking I should be respecting her.

    Ok, are you only with your horse when the trainer is out there? Have you watched your trainer with your horse? What is he doing different that makes you think your horse respects him and not you.

    I know I keep asking questions but I just want to get the whole picture so I can try and help you better. I have been in your position and I may be able to help you over this. I hope you aren't mad for the questions.
