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 don't 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 :)
