I'm hitting a rough streak and it is really dashing my confidence. I fall off at least once every day I ride and it is usually because my horse is incredibly spooky but excited at the same time. He's got spring fever 100% and it is killing me. I refuse to ride in a saddle, I ride bareback only and that's fine, I have my balance but sometimes I feel like a failure because we will be trotting around and then I'll ask for a canter and he'll kick up his heels and take off while I slip right off and roll in the dust while he thrashes around happily for a moment and realizes "Oopse..." I know he doesn't mean it but its a total bummer to me. I'm getting so frustrated and I have no idea how I can expect him to behave on a trail ride because he's so jumpy and excitable.
