Take your time. I use self control when I fall of get nervous or scared. Just think of the positives and believe you can do it.
I think it would help if you took short rides on Summer till you gain all of your confidence back.

As for the older lady...some horse people are crazy. As long as your horses are healthy and you love them then I don't think anyone should complain.

This is off-topic, but maybe it'll make you smile: doesn't Cinny look like she's "tripping" in her avatar?

Good luck-and just go out and do stuff with your horse that you
both enjoy. Have fun, and the confidence will return. As for the lady-it is SO much more rewarding (both mentally and skills wise) to do what you do and "make" your own horses.....she nor her kids will EVER have what you do. :)

Look at it this way...that woman is in her 40's! Trust me, she's looking for things to be bitter about! They don't call those the mid-life crisis years for nothing. Just take it at your own pace. Soon enough you'll get on and feel like you did before the fall. Rich people's horses toss their riders on the ground too! (hee hee)

You just have to see your distance...you don't have to like it.

Okay, so an update:
I went out to ride Summer, fully confident and once I caught her and everything I looked at her and she has a HUGE gash all the way along her side right where my saddle would sit and stuff...so now I can't ride her, and I can't show her..its 10 days before the show..so Buttercup it is.

Well, that's depressing. :( Glad you are starting to get your confidence back though.
