Hi everyone! I have a question on where to find riding lessons for someone scared of horses.
Here's the situation......
My wife is turning 40 in a few months. She has always LOVED horses but had an incident when she was a teenager that really spooked her. She was riding in her native Sweden when her horse, for no reason, bolted on her. At full gallop it started running through the woods lashing my wife with tree branches, etc. At one point it jumped over a small rock wall at which point my wife was thrown off landing on the rock wall on her back. Fortunately she wasn't injured all that bad but ever since she has talked about wanting to learn to ride again but is terrified something might happen again.
We live in the San Francisco area and my question to you experts is if there is a place in that area you know of that specializes in working with scared riders on a private basis or something like that? I would love to be able to get some lessons for her for her birthday. It would really mean alot to her to be able to ride and be around these beautiful animals once again.
Thank you for any input and info!
