need some advice on the best way to go about gettin confidence again
basically iv been riding since i was a child i am now 21. i gave it up a lot thro secondary school and came back to it wen i was 18 but since coming back iv had a bit of hard time and now im really frustrated and my confidence is shattered.
basically the one riding school i was at for a year i ended up aving one horse who would always spook every lesson but i was doing ok with controlling it altho it did knock my confidence a bit. but then i was put on a larger horse that was younger and had a accident were my knee was squished between a tree and i ended up on crutches for six months before i finally got surgery. and this left my confidence shattered.
i did after this tho go on a long ride wen i was back with old friends in wales and was perfectly fine and out for four hours was a lovely day.
but since then i was just working in a few yards not really riding.
n then had another accident with a horse in stable - she just basically spooked from the horse next door and i had turned my back to walk out n her she ended up doing a very small rear but caught my back.
now iv recently been at derwen stud and i couldnt even walk into the stable to put a feed bucket in the corner.
all of this has now left me completly annoyed , disapointed really. i am stil nervous and i realise it will take time but i dont no were to start with improvin any of this - horses n riding used to be a huge love of mine but now i can barely stand near one and its quite upsetting. - can anyone suggest were i need to start and wot i can do. will it just be a case of going to a new riding stables and explaining all this to them and going from scratch again? i really want to sort all this out.
Thank You in advance :)
