Just wanted to give a quick update. I spent about 6 hours at the barn last night, just helping with random chores, feeding, turning out, bringing in, etc. I got up the nerve to saddle up, and I rode for about 25 minutes. My great friend has a total schoolmaster TB gelding boarded with our trainer, named Moe. She is away at boarding school, and suggested that I ride him as much as I'd like, to see how I like him. Well......we just trotted around, and I eventually got up the nerve to canter for a minute. I remember why I like it so much =) He was a perfect gentleman, and did everything I asked of him. I am going to spend a lot of time with him, just rebuilding my confidence. Thank you to everyone for all of your kind words. We even celebrated the triumph with a barn pizza party, lol. Having great friends and a great trainer make all the difference in the world!
